Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: New AdS_5 solutions in string and M-theory

Presented by Daniel Waldram (Imperial),

20 February 2004 13:00 in CM221

"The talk starts with a short review of G-structures and their use in characterizing the geometry of supersymmetric string and M-theory backgrounds. The central part of the talk describes how to use these techniques to derive several new classes of AdS_5 backgrounds including a infinite family of new Sasaki-Einstein metrics. Some of these classes are related by T-duality. All should provide new duals of N=1 superconformal field theories."
