Recently proposed Horava-Lifshitz gravity promises a UV completion of Einstein’s theory by sacrificing general covariance at short distances and introducing anisotropic spacetime scaling. Here we… (More)

We present a new supersymmetric AdS(6) solution of type IIB supergravity with SU(2) isometry. Through the AdS/CFT correspondence, this has potentially very interesting implications for 5D fixed point… (More)

By identifying a bosonic consistent truncation from the 14 -BPS wrapped M5brane geometry of Maldacena, Strominger and Witten in D = 11 supergravity and finding a supersymmetric extension, we recover… (More)

We perform a systematic study, in eleven dimensional supergravity, of the geometry of wrapped brane configurations admitting AdS 2 limits. Membranes wrapping holomorphic curves in Calabi-Yau… (More)

By studying classes of supersymmetric solutions of D = 11 supergravity with AdS5 factors, we determine some properties of the dual four-dimensional N = 1 superconformal field theories. For some… (More)

We study the global geometry of a general class of spacetimes of relevance to the supersymmetric AdS3/CFT2 correspondence in eleven-dimensional supergravity. Specifically, we study spacetimes… (More)

We present new families of non-supersymmetric solutions of D = 11 supergravity with non-relativistic symmetry, based on six-dimensional KählerEinstein manifolds. In constructing these solutions, we… (More)

It is well known that Hopf-fibre T-duality and uplift takes the D1-D5 nearhorizon into a class of AdS3 × S 2 geometries in 11D where the internal space is a CalabiYau three-fold. Moreover,… (More)
