Resolved toroidal orbifolds and their orientifolds. (English) Zbl 1152.81883
Summary: We discuss the resolution of toroidal orbifolds. For the resulting smooth Calabi-Yau manifolds, we calculate the intersection ring and determine the divisor topologies. In a next step, the orientifold quotients are constructed..
