Counting flux vacua
Michael Douglas (Rutgers University)

We describe a technique for counting vacua of IIb string compactified on Calabi-Yau with flux, and give results for numbers of supersymmetric and non-supersymmetric vacua. Based on joint work with Sujay Ashok (Rutgers) and Bernard Shiffman and Steve Zelditch (Johns Hopkins).
