@inproceedings{Basiouris2021RemarksOT, title={Remarks on the effects of quantum corrections on moduli stabilization and de Sitter vacua in type IIB string theory}, author={Vasileios Basiouris and George K. Leontaris}, year={2021} }

The rôle of string loop corrections on the existence of de Sitter vacua and the moduli stabilization problem is examined in the framework of type IIB effective models. The fundamental building blocks of the proposed model are a geometric configuration with a minimum of three intersecting D7 brane stacks and an equal number of Kähler moduli, as well as a novel Einstein-Hilbert term associated with higher derivative terms of the 10-dimensional effective action. It was shown in previous works that… Expand
