Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Giant Gravitons in an AdS3/CFT2 Correspondence

Presented by Andrea Prinsloo, University of Surrey

17 October 2014 13:00 in CM221

I will describe classes of supersymmetric D1 and D5-branes, known as giant gravitons, in IIB string theory on AdS3 x S3 x S3 x S1 with pure RR flux, which is conjectured to have a 2D conformal field theory dual. I will close with a few remarks on these D-branes as integrability preserving boundary conditions for open IIB superstrings.
