Holography for Non-Critical Superstrings

  title={Holography for Non-Critical Superstrings},
  author={Amit Giveon and David Kutasov and Oskar Pelc},
We argue that a class of “non-critical superstring” vacua is holographically related to the (non-gravitational) theory obtained by studying string theory on a singular Calabi-Yau manifold in the decoupling limit gs → 0. In two dimensions, adding fundamental strings at the singularity of the CY manifold leads to conformal field theories dual to a recently constructed class of AdS3 vacua. In four dimensions, special cases of the construction correspond to the theory on an NS5-brane wrapped around… CONTINUE READING
