The Compactification Problems of Additional Dimensions in Multidimensional Cosmological Theories
Another important application is the search for deSitter vacua in string theory that are compatible with a small cosmological constant: uplifted AdS-vacua in type IIA string theory acquire off-diagonal terms in the mass matrix, often pushing the lowest eigenvalue to negative values and thus destabilizing the vacuum .
On the Unlikeliness of Multi-Field Inflation: Bounded Random Potentials and our Vacuum
But, in this letter, we first obtain the general eleven dimensional vacuum solutions, and then generate the brane solutions by U duality operations – namely boosting, dimensional reduction and uplifting, and S and T dualties.

Upon uplift to one dimension higher, these dualities allow us to “untwist” general black holes to AdS3 times a sphere.
General black holes, untwisted
It works particularly well in the context of the four-dimensional STU model and its five-dimensional uplift, since in these cases the non-trivial matter field configurations that support the subtracted geometries are still solutions of the same Lagrangian as the original black holes.
General black holes, untwisted
Moreover, one can use the extra dimensions available in the string-theory embedding of these models to show that the four-dimensional subtracted geometries uplift to AdS3 × S 2 and the five-dimensional ones, to AdS3 × S 3 , thus making the connection with twodimensional CFTs entirely explicit.
