This book seeks to be a guidebook on the journey towards the minimal supersymmetric standard model down the orbifold road. It takes the viewpoint that the chirality of matter fermions is an essential aspect that orbifold compactification allows to derive from higher-dimensional string theories in a rather straight-forward manner. Halfway between a textbook and a tutorial review, "Quarks and Leptons from Orbitfolded Superstrings" is intended for the graduate student and particle phenomenologist wishing to get acquainted with this field.
