Abstract Following arXiv:1907.04737, we continue our investigation of the relation between the renormalizability (with finitely many couplings) and integrability in 2d σ- models. We focus on the “λ-model,” an integrable model associated to a group or symmetric space and containing as special limits a (gauged) WZW model and an “interpolating model” for non-abelian duality. The parameters are the WZ level k and the coupling λ, and the fields are g, valued in a group G, and a 2d vector A± in… 
Sigma models with local couplings: a new integrability-RG flow connection
We consider several classes of $\sigma$-models (on groups and symmetric spaces, $\eta$-models, $\lambda$-models) with local couplings that may depend on the 2d coordinates, e.g. on time $\tau$. We
Dual description of η-deformed OSP sigma models
Abstract We study the dual description of the η-deformed OSP(N|2m) sigma model in the asymptotically free regime (N > 2m + 2). Compared to the case of classical Lie groups, for supergroups there are
Integrability vs. RG flow in $G \times G$ and $G \times G /H$ sigma models
We consider a class of 2d σ-models on products of group spaces that provide new examples of a close connection between integrability and stability under the RG flow. We first study the integrable G ×
An exact symmetry in λ-deformed CFTs
We consider $\lambda$-deformed current algebra CFTs at level $k$, interpolating between an exact CFT in the UV and a PCM in the IR. By employing gravitational techniques, we derive the two-loop, in
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
Integrable $\lambda$-deformations of the Euclidean black string
Non-trivial outer algebra automorphisms may be utilized in λ-deformations of (gauged) WZW models thus providing an efficient way to construct new integrable models. We provide two such integrable
The twisted story of worldsheet scattering in η-deformed AdS5 × S5
We study the worldsheet scattering theory of the $\eta$ deformation of the AdS$_\mathsf{5} \times $S$^\mathsf{5}$ superstring corresponding to the purely fermionic Dynkin diagram. This theory is a
Integrable deformed T1,1 sigma models from 4D Chern-Simons theory
Abstract Recently, a variety of deformed T1,1 manifolds, with which 2D non-linear sigma models (NLSMs) are classically integrable, have been presented by Arutyunov, Bassi and Lacroix (ABL) [46]. We
RG flows of integrable σ-models and the twist function
In the study of integrable non-linear $\sigma$-models which are assemblies and/or deformations of principal chiral models and/or WZW models, a rational function called the twist function plays a


Integrable deformations of strings on symmetric spaces
A bstractA general class of deformations of integrable sigma-models with symmetric space F/G target-spaces are found. These deformations involve defining the non-abelian T dual of the sigma-model and
Target space supergeometry of η and λ-deformed strings
A bstractWe study the integrable η and λ-deformations of supercoset string sigma models, the basic example being the deformation of the AdS5 × S5 superstring. We prove that the kappa symmetry

We consider classical and quantum integrable sigma models and their relations with the solutions of renormalization group equations. We say that an integrable sigma model possesses the "nice" duality
