# Have string theory and brane cosmology the same landscape?

Has any of these hypothetical theories a "higher" number of possible universes or has string theory landscape the same type of possible universes than brane cosmology?

• from the armchair: i've always thought that "brane cosmology" is another title to Susskind's String Landscape cosmology. something like $10^{500}$ universes is what the say. Aug 16 '18 at 0:51
• thank you for your answer. I asked this because in this question: physics.stackexchange.com/q/382035 (in the comments) it is said that they are not the sam (or that's what i interpreted). So I guess that this user was wrong, right? @robertbristow-johnson

• i dunno. i am an electrical engineer. my understanding is that "branes" come from membrane which is a generalization of string in string theory. many strings combine to become a membrane or a "brane". and M-theory is where branes come from or go to (even though the "M" was not specifically defined, many physicists think it stands for "membrane").
