# D-branes in Lorentzian AdS(3)

: We study the exact construction of D-branes in Lorentzian AdS 3 . We start by deﬁning a family of conformal ﬁeld theories that gives a natural Euclidean version of the SL(2 , R ) CFT and does not correspond to H +3 , the analytic continuation of AdS 3 . We argue that one can recuperate the exact CFT results of Lorentzian AdS 3 , upon an analytic continuation in the moduli space of these conformal ﬁeld theories. Then we construct exact boundary states for various symmetric and symmetry…
