Description

Constructing models of meta-stable vacua in supersymmetric theories is a crucial task for string phenomenology. It has been conjectured that anti-D3 branes in the Klebanov-Strassler background indeed produce such a supersymmetry breaking scenario. In this talk I will outline the results of a supergravity calculation which represents the backreaction of such anti-D3 branes and discuss the implications for finding meta-stable vacua from warped deformed conifolds.
