Description

I will give a brief summary of the status of the heterotic approach to string phenomenology. I will begin by giving a broad-brush overview of what has and has not been achieved in this field. I will then describe two recent pieces of work on smooth heterotic compactifications to indicate the type of progress which is currently being made.
