- Critical string theory requires that the number of extra dimensions is n = 6(7). We show that if the large extra dimensions scheme of Arkani-Hamed, Dimopoulos, and Dvali (ADD) is realized, this prediction can be tested through black hole production properties at the LHC. In particular, we demonstrate that if n is significantly larger than 6(7), as required if ADD is to truly solve the hierarchy problem, then the critical string theory prediction can be excluded at high confidence.
