A bstractWe investigate the integrable Yang-Baxter deformation of the 2d Principal Chiral Model with a Wess-Zumino term. For arbitrary groups, the one-loop β-functions are calculated and display a surprising connection between classical and quantum physics: the classical integrability condition is necessary to prevent new couplings being generated by renormalisation. We show these theories admit an elegant realisation of Poisson-Lie T-duality acting as a simple inversion of coupling constants… 

Yang–Baxter deformations of the principal chiral model plus Wess–Zumino term

A large class of integrable deformations of the principal chiral model, known as the Yang–Baxter deformations, are governed by skew-symmetric R-matrices solving the (modified) classical Yang–Baxter

Sigma model on a squashed sphere with a Wess-Zumino term

A class of two-dimensional sigma models interpolating between $CP^1$ and the $SU(2)$ principal chiral model is discussed. We add the Wess-Zumino-Novikov-Witten term and examine the renormalization

Local β-deformations and Yang-Baxter sigma model

A bstractHomogeneous Yang-Baxter (YB) deformation of AdS5 × S5 superstring is revisited. We calculate the YB sigma model action up to quadratic order in fermions and show that homogeneous YB

In this pedagogical review we introduce systematic approaches to deforming integrable two-dimensional sigma models. We use the integrable principal chiral model and the conformal Wess–Zumino–Witten

Some integrable deformations of the Wess-Zumino-Witten model

Lie algebra valued equations translating the integrability of a general two-dimensional Wess-Zumino-Witten model are given. We found simple solutions to these equations and identified three types of

Yang-Baxter deformations beyond coset spaces (a slick way to do TsT)

A bstractYang-Baxter string sigma-models provide a systematic way to deform coset geometries, such as AdSp × Sp, while retaining the σ-model integrability. It has been shown that the Yang-Baxter

D-branes in λ-deformations

A bstractWe show that the geometric interpretation of D-branes in WZW models as twisted conjugacy classes persists in the λ-deformed theory. We obtain such configurations by demanding that a

Doubled aspects of generalised dualities and integrable deformations

A bstractThe worldsheet theories that describe Poisson-Lie T-dualisable σ-models on group manifolds as well as integrable η, λ and β-deformations provide examples of ℰ-models. Here we show how such

Classical Yang-Baxter equation from β-supergravity

A bstractYang-Baxter deformations of superstring σ-models have recently inspired a supergravity solution generating technique. Using the open/closed string map and a Killing bi-vector as a

Combining the bi-Yang-Baxter deformation, the Wess-Zumino term and TsT transformations in one integrable σ-model

A bstractA multi-parameter integrable deformation of the principal chiral model is presented. The Yang-Baxter and bi-Yang-Baxter σ-models, the principal chiral model plus a Wess-Zumino term and the

A deformation of quantum affine algebra in squashed Wess-Zumino-Novikov-Witten models

We proceed to study infinite-dimensional symmetries in two-dimensional squashed Wess-Zumino-Novikov-Witten models at the classical level. The target space is given by squashed S3 and the isometry is

On integrability of the Yang–Baxter σ-model

We prove that the recently introduced Yang–Baxter σ-model can be considered as an integrable deformation of the principal chiral model. We find also an explicit one-to-one map transforming every

A bstractWe proceed to study the hybrid integrable structure in two-dimensional non-linear sigma models with target space three-dimensional squashed spheres. A quantum affine algebra and a pair of
