Abstract
Despite much recent progress in model building with D-branes, it has been problematic to find a completely convincing explanation of gauge coupling unification. We extend the class of models by considering F-theory compactifications, which may incorporate unification more naturally. We explain how to derive the charged chiral spectrum and Yukawa couplings in N=1 compactifications of F-theory with G-flux. In a class of models which admit perturbative heterotic duals, we show that the F-theory and heterotic computations match.
