Abstract: A method of determining the mass spectrum of BPS Dbranes in any phase limit of a gauged linear sigma model is introduced. A ring associated to monodromy is defined and one considers Ktheory to be a module over this ring. A simple but interesting class of hybrid models with LandauGinzburg fibres over ℙ n are analyzed using special Kähler geometry and Dbrane probes. In some cases the hybrid limit is an infinite distance in moduli space and corresponds to a decompactification. In other cases the hybrid limit is at a finite distance and acquires massless Dbranes. An example studied appears to correspond to a novel theory of supergravity with an SU(2) gauge symmetry where the gauge and gravitational couplings are necessarily tied to each other. © SISSA 2010.
