The landscape of string theory is thought to provide a natural solution to the cosmological constant problem. However, this landscape is too complicated and there is no concrete calculation and prediction that shows it really contains solutions like the universe we observe. Recently, there has been many attempts to understand the statistics of the landscape. We have studied the lifetime and stability of this vacua in the limit of having many fields using a proxy of N scalar fields.
