Abstract

We study the MSSM in F-theory. Its group is the commutant to a structure group SU(5)×U(1)Y of a gauge bundle in E8. The spectrum contains three generations of quarks and leptons plus vectorlike electroweak and colored Higgses. The minimal MSSM Yukawa couplings with matter parity is obtained at the renormalizable level.
