Can't we get Alan Sokal to test this for us? (-;

The last couple of months have not created any major trends that
everyone would find extraordinarily powerful but people continue to work
on trends that have been hot for two years or so, such as the higher
order corrections to black hole entropy, relations to topological
strings, flux vacua, landscape, swampland, general predictions of string
theory, as well as 3-year-old trends such as integrability in AdS/CFT +
Bethe Ansaetze and many others.

If you ask at a better moment, you may get a more focused and exciting
answer. In that case, it is likely that you get the answer before you
ask the question. ;-)

Best wishes
LM

Thanks a lot!

I don't think that the question What are the main trends in a scientific
field in the last couple of months is a vague question.

It's like asking 'what are the recent trends in literature point me to
good books'.

Hi.
Can anyone explain me the recent trends in string theory with the
reference of the main papers? (last mounths)
Thanks a lot!

Can anyone to answare? Please!

You don't get an answer because your question is far too vague and
unspecific. It's like asking 'what are the recent trends in literature
point me to good books'. Ask concrete questions and you will get
answers. Meanwhile have a look at http://www.arxiv.org and then
hep-th.
