Mathematics and Applications of Branes in String and M-theory

String compactifications incorporating non-vanishing H-flux have received increased attention over the past decade for their potential relevance to the moduli stabilization problem. Their internal spaces are in general not Kähler and, therefore, not Calabi-Yau. In the heterotic string an important technical problem is to construct gauge bundles on such spaces. I will present a method of how to explicitly construct gauge bundles over homogeneous nearly-Kähler manifolds of dimension six. These bundles solve the heterotic string including first order alpha’ corrections and allow for non-vanishing flux. I will also discuss some of the arising implications for model building.
