### Distributions of flux vacua

- Mathematics, Physics
- 2004

We give results for the distribution and number of flux vacua of various types, supersymmetric and nonsupersymmetric, in IIB string theory compactified on Calabi-Yau manifolds. We compare this with…

### New Perspectives on the Quest for Unification

- Physics
- 1998

Synthesizing older ideas about the 1/N expansion in gauge theory, the quantum mechanics of black holes, and quantum field theory in Anti de Sitter space, a new correspondence between gauge theory and…

### Cosmic F- and D-strings

- Physics
- 2003

Macroscopic fundamental and Dirichlet strings have several potential instabilities: breakage, tachyon decays, and confinement by axion domain walls. We investigate the conditions under which…

### A note on accelerating cosmologies from compactifications and S-branes

- Physics
- 2003

We give a simple interpretation of the recent solutions for cosmologies with a transient accelerating phase obtained from compactification in hyperbolic manifolds, or from S-brane solutions of…

### Cosmic Acceleration and M-Theory

- Physics
- 2003

The status of accelerating four-dimensional universes obtained by time-dependent compactifications of 10 or 11 dimensional supergravity is reviewed, as is the `no-go' theorem that they evade. All…

### De Sitter vacua in string theory

- Mathematics
- 2003

We outline the construction of metastable de Sitter vacua of type IIB string theory. Our starting point is highly warped IIB compactifications with nontrivial NS and RR three-form fluxes. By…

### Intersecting brane worlds: A Path to the standard model?

- Mathematics
- 2004

In this paper we describe the general geometrical framework of brane world constructions in orientifolds of type IIA string theory with D6-branes wrapping 3-cycles in a Calabi-Yau 3-fold. These…
