Exploring the Holographic Swampland

Abstract: I describe our work looking at `traditional’ scenarios of moduli stabilisation from a holographic perspective. This reveals some interesting structure that is not apparent from the top-down perspective. For vacua in the extreme regions of moduli space, such as LVS in type IIB or the DGKT flux vacua in type IIA, the dual moduli conformal dimensions reduce to fixed values – in a certain sense, the low-conformal dimension part of the CFT is unique and independent of the large number of flux choices. For the DGKT flux vacua these conformal dimensions are also integer, for reasons we do not understand.
