Current-current deformations for WZW models of semisimple compact groups are discussed in a sigma model approach. We start with the abelian rank one group U(1). Afterwards, we keep the rank one but allow for non abelian structures by considering SU(2). Finally, we present the general case of rank larger than one. 
Deformations of anti-de Sitter black holes
This PhD thesis mainly deals with deformations of locally anti-de Sitter black holes, focusing in particular on BTZ black holes. We first study the generic rotating and (extended) non-rotating BTZ
