Nature of problem:
A central problem of string-phenomenology is to find stable vacua in the four dimensional effective theories which result from compactification.

Solution method:
We present an algorithmic method, which uses techniques of algebraic geometry, to find all of the vacua of any given string-phenomenological system in a huge class.

Running time:
Varies greatly depending on calculation requested.
