(0,2) Gauge Dynamics and Flux Compactifications

Two-dimensional gauge
theories with (0,2) supersymmetry admit a much broader, and more interesting,
class of solutions than their better studied (2,2) counterparts. In this talk,
we will explore some of the possibilities that are offered by this additional
freedom. The moduli spaces we find can be interpreted as the target spaces for
heterotic strings moving in backgrounds with non-trivial H-flux. A remarkable
relationship between (0,2) gauge anomalies and H-flux will emerge.
