CPT Student Seminar: Dynamics of D3-NS5 branes in Klebanov-Strassler background
The KKLT (Kachru, Kallosh, Linde, Trivedi) construction of de-Sitter vacua (hep-th/0301240 ~ 3000 citations) is very important for string theory. One key ingredient of the KKLT paper is the result from a previous paper (hep-th/0112197) by KPV (Kachru, Pearson, Verlinde). However, the KPV paper is highly controversial so the KKLT construction is thrown into question as well. In this talk, I’ll (schematically) consider the debate around KPV and talk about our recent paper (1812.01067) on the topic. I’ll present our results, which I believe greatly affect the KPV debate, and also the conceptual ideas of our analysis.
