Abstract: This work concerns the construction of Calabi-Yau threefolds in codimension 4. Based on a study of Hilbert series, we give a list of families of Calabi-Yau threefolds which may exist in codimension 3 and codimension 4. Using birational methods, we construct Calabi-Yau threefolds that realize several of the listed families. The main result is that the cases we consider in codimension 4 lie in two different deformation components.
