    The debate over the validity of Kallosh-Kachru-Linde-Trivedi 03 (“KKLT”) keeps going, have added pointer to today’s

    • Jakob Moritz, Ander Retolaza, Alexander Westphal, On uplifts by warped anti-D3-branes (arXiv:1809.06618)

    But “debate” is maybe not quite the right word. While the critics try to be careful about their arguments, as highlighted in the above article, the reaction from KKL, so far, is essentially a plain repetition of the same story that is being critized on concrete points, accompanied by what seems to need to be called a PR campaign for the three Stanford professors involved (here).

    • Ivano Basile, Alessia Platania, String Tension between de Sitter vacua and Curvature Corrections (arXiv:2103.06276)

      “We show that the resulting higher-derivative α\alpha'-corrections forbid the existence of de Sitter vacua, at least in regimes where string-loop corrections can be neglected.”

    (There is too much of this debate on the arXiv each weak to sensibly keep our references updated, but this one stood out in its concrete claim.

    One day the community will converge here. And then maybe realize that they have been in disconnect from the SM-model building community all along…)

  1. Hi, I noticed that the text “(e.g. here)” in Section 1 contains a broken link, added back in 2017 (revision #5).

    The target of the link is

    https://books.google.de/books?id=vtEkBAAAQBAJ=PA135=zsId1G2lKU=anti-de%20Sitter%20quotient%20of%20SO(3%2C2)=PA135#v=onepage=anti-de%20Sitter%20quotient%20of%20SO(3,2)=false

    which now just redirects to the Google search home page.

    I don’t think that the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine is much help in this case. Urs, do you remember which text this was?

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    This is a classical statement for which one could give any number of references. I have now changed the broken link to a pointer to Blau’s lectures (§39.1, around p. 883)
