Semi-classical analysis of the string theory cigar

- MathematicsJournal of High Energy Physics
- 2021

Abstract
We study the semi-classical limit of the reflection coefficient for the SL(2, ℝ)k/U(1) CFT. For large k, the CFT describes a string in a Euclidean black hole of 2-dimensional…

Stringy black hole interiors

Abstract
It is well known that non-perturbative α

corrections to the SL(2, ℝ)/U(1) cigar geometry are described via a condensation of a Sine-Liouville operator that schematically can be…

Holographic approach to deformations of NS5-brane distributions and exact CFTs

- Physics
- 2007

We consider general planar deformations of a circular distribution of NS5-branes. The near-horizon region of the latter admits, after a T-duality transformation, an exact conformal-field-theory…

The Stoyanovsky-Ribault-Teschner Map and String Scattering Amplitudes

- Physics
- 2005

Recently, Ribault and Teschner pointed out the existence of a one-to-one correspondence between N-point correlation functions for the SL(2,C)_k/SU(2) WZNW model on the sphere and certain set of…

Supersymmetric moduli of the SU(2) × ℝϕ linear dilaton background and NS5-branes

- Physics
- 2008

We study several classes of marginal deformations of the conformal field theory SU(2)k × R�. This theory describes the near-horizon region of a stack of parallel and coin- cident NS5-branes and is…

Critical non-Abelian vortices and holography for little string theory

- PhysicsPhysical Review D
- 2021

It has been shown that non-Abelian vortex string supported in four dimensional (4D) N = 2 supersymmetric QCD (SQCD) with the U(2) gauge group and Nf = 4 quark flavors becomes a critical superstring.…

Large N gauge theories and topological cigars

- Physics
- 2007

We analyze the conjectured duality between a class of double-scaling limits of a one-matrix model and the topological twist of non-critical superstring backgrounds that contain the N = 2…

A toy model for the AdS/CFT correspondence

- Physics
- 2004

We study the large-N gauged quantum mecchanics for a single hermitean matrix in the Harmonic oscillator potential well as a toy model for the AdS/CFT correspondence. We argue that the dual geometry…

Strings from Tachyons

- Physics
- 2003

We propose a new interpretation of the c=1 matrix model as the world-line theory of N unstable D-particles, in which the hermitian matrix is provided by the non- abelian open string tachyon. For…

Proposals on nonperturbative superstring interactions

- Physics
- 1997

We show a possibility that the matrix models recently proposed to explain (almost) all the physics of M-theory may include the superstring theories that we know perturbatively. The ``1st quantized''…

Some remarks on D-branes in AdS

- Mathematics
- 2001

We investigate the relation between the algebraic construction of boundary states in AdS3 and the target space analysis of D-branes and show the consistency of the two descriptions. We compute, in…

Linear dilatons, NS5-branes and holography

- Physics, Mathematics
- 1998

We argue that vacua of string theory which asymptote at weak coupling to linear dilaton backgrounds are holographic. The full string theory in such vacua is ``dual'' to a theory without gravity in…

Correlators in AdS_3 string theory

- Physics
- 2001

The computation of two and three point functions in the Coulomb gas free field approach to string theory in the SL(2,R)/U(1) black hole background is reviewed. An interesting relation arises when…

D-brane Decay in Two-Dimensional String Theory

We consider unstable D0-branes of two dimensional string theory, described by the boundary state of Zamolodchikov and Zamolodchikov [hep-th/0101152] multiplied by the Neumann boundary state for the…
