Giant Gravitons from Holomorphic Surfaces


We introduce a class of supersymmetric cycles in spacetimes of the form AdS times a sphere or T 1,1 which can be considered as generalizations of the giant gravitons. Branes wrapped on these cycles preserve 12 , 1 4 or 1 8 of the supersymmetry. On the CFT side these configurations correspond to superpositions of the large number of BPS states.
