Author(s) from Durham


We argue that in the context of string theory, the usual restriction to globally hyperbolic space–times should be considerably relaxed. We exhibit an example of a space–time which only satisfies the causal condition, and so is arbitrarily close to admitting closed causal curves, but which has a well-behaved dual description, free of paradoxes.
