Localized Tachyons and the g cl conjecture

We consider C/ZN and C/ZN orbifolds of heterotic string theories and ZN orbifolds of AdS3. We study theories with N=2 worldsheet superconformal invariance and construct RG flows. Following Harvey, Kutasov, Martinec and Moore, we compute gcl and show that it decreases monotonically along RG flowsas conjectured by them. For the heterotic string theories, the… CONTINUE READING
