# Flux Compactification

@inproceedings{Douglas2006FluxC, title={Flux Compactification}, author={M. Douglas and S. Kachru}, year={2006} }

We review recent work in which compactifications of string and M theory are constructed in which all scalar fields (moduli) are massive, and supersymmetry is broken with a small positive cosmological constant, features needed to reproduce real world physics. We explain how this work implies that there is a “landscape” of string/M theory vacua, perhaps containing many candidates for describing real world physics, and present the arguments for and against this idea. We discuss statistical surveys… CONTINUE READING
