Embedding AdS Black Holes in Ten and Eleven Dimensions

Abstract We construct the non-linear Kaluza-Klein ansatze describing the embeddings of the U (1) 3 , U (1) 4 and U (1) 2 truncations of D = 5, D = 4 and D = 7 gauged supergravities into the type IIB… Expand

Eleven-dimensional origin of string-string duality: A One loop test

- M. Duff, J. Liu, R. Minasian
- Physics
- 19 June 1995

Abstract Membrane/ fivebrane duality in D = 11 implies Type IIA string/Type IIA fivebrane duality in D = 10, which in turn implies Type HA string/heterotic string duality in D = 6. To test the… Expand

Anti-de Sitter black holes in gauged N = 8 supergravity

We present new anti-de Sitter black hole solutions of gauged N = 8, SO(8) supergravity, which is the massless sector of the AdS4 × S70 vacuum of M-theory. By focusing on the U(1)4 Cartan subgroup, we… Expand

Coupling constant dependence of the shear viscosity in N=4 supersymmetric Yang–Mills theory

- A. Buchel, J. Liu, A. Starinets
- Physics
- 29 June 2004

Gauge theory–gravity duality predicts that the shear viscosity of N=4 supersymmetric SU(Nc) Yang–Mills plasma at temperature T in the limit of large Nc and large 't Hooft coupling gYM2Nc is… Expand

Four-dimensional string-string-string triality

- M. Duff, J. Liu, J. Rahmfeld
- Physics
- 19 August 1995

Abstract In six space-time dimensions, the heterotic string is dual to a Type IIA string. On further toroidal compactification to four space-time dimensions, the heterotic string acquires an SL(2,… Expand

Universality of the shear viscosity from supergravity duals.

Kovtun, Son, and Starinets proposed a bound on the shear viscosity of any fluid in terms of its entropy density. We argue that this bound is always saturated for gauge theories at large 't Hooft… Expand

Mass in anti-de Sitter spaces

The boundary stress tensor approach has proven extremely useful in defining mass and angular momentum in asymptotically anti-de Sitter spaces with CFT duals. An integral part of this method is the… Expand

Hidden spacetime symmetries and generalized holonomy in M-theory ☆

Abstract In M-theory vacua with vanishing 4-form F (4) , one can invoke the ordinary Riemannian holonomy H ⊂SO(10,1) to account for unbroken supersymmetries n =1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 16, 32. However, the… Expand

Higher-derivative couplings in string theory: Dualities and the B field

- J. Liu, R. Minasian
- Physics
- 10 April 2013

Abstract The first quantum correction to the IIA string effective action arises at the eight-derivative level and takes the schematic form ( t 8 t 8 − 1 8 ϵ 10 ϵ 10 ) R 4 + B 2 ∧ X 8 . This… Expand

Gauged supergravity from type IIB string theory on Yp, q manifolds

We first construct a consistent Kaluza–Klein reduction ansatz for type IIB theory compactified on Sasaki–Einstein manifolds Yp,q with Freund–Rubin 5-form flux giving rise to minimal N=2 gauged… Expand
