Morrison Abstract: There are three roads to 4D supersymmetric physics from higher dimensional theories: F-theory compactified on the base of an elliptic Calabi-Yau fourfold, M-theory compactified on a space with holonomy G_2, and the heterotic string compactified on a Calabi-Yau threefold with bundle and connection.  We will explore recent progress down each of these three roads.
