We show that Type IIB string theory on AdS 3 × S 3 × M 4 with p units of NS flux contains an integrable subsector, isomorphic to the minimal (p, 1) bosonic string. To this end, we construct a topological string theory with target space Euclidean AdS 3 × S 3. We use a variant of Hamiltonian reduction to prove its equivalence to the minimal (p, 1) string. The topological theory is then embedded in the physical ten-dimensional IIB string theory. Correlators of tachyons in the minimal string are…

On minimal Script N = 4 topological strings and the (1,k) minimal bosonic string
In this paper we consider tree-level scattering in the minimal = 4 topological string and show that a large class of N-point functions can be recast in terms of corresponding amplitudes in the (1,k)
Topological cigar and the c = 1 string: open and closed
We clarify some aspects of the map between the c = 1 string theory at self-dual radius and the topologically twisted cigar at level one. We map the ZZ and FZZT D-branes in the c = 1 string theory at
On the connection between N = 2 minimal string and (1,n) bosonic minimal string
We study the scattering amplitudes in the N = 2 minimal string or equivalently in the N = 4 topological string on ALE spaces. We find an interesting connection between the tree level amplitudes of
The Topological Cigar Observables
We study the topologically twisted cigar, namely the SL(2,)/U(1) superconformal field theory at arbitrary level, and find the BRST cohomology of the topologically twisted N = 2 theory. We find a one
Discrete D-branes in AdS 3 and in the 2d black hole
I show how the AdS2 D-branes in the Euclidean AdS3 string theory are related to the continuous D-branes in Liouville theory. I then propose new discrete D-branes in the Euclidean AdS3 which
Double scaling limits and twisted non-critical superstrings
We consider double-scaling limits of multicut solutions of certain one matrix models that are related to Calabi-Yau singularities of type A and the respective topological B model via the
Complex matrix model duality
The same complex matrix model calculates both tachyon scattering for the c=1 noncritical string at the self-dual radius and certain correlation functions of operators which preserve half the
Non-rational su(2) cosets and Liouville field theory
We propose an su(2) WZNW model with a non-rational level and a continuous spectrum based on the non-unitary hermitian representations of the chiral algebra su(2)_k. It is conjectured that for this
Diagrams for symmetric product orbifolds
We develop a diagrammatic language for symmetric product orbifolds of two-dimensional conformal field theories. Correlation functions of twist operators are written as sums of diagrams: each diagram
Large N spectrum of two matrices in a harmonic potential and BMN energies
The large N spectrum of the quantum mechanical hamiltonian of two hermitean matrices in a harmonic potential is studied in a framework where one of the matrices is treated exactly and the other is


Multi-strings on AdS3 × S3 from matrix string theory
We analyze the Coulomb branch of Matrix string theory in the presence of NS5-branes. If we regard the components of U(1) gauge fields as the dualized longitudinal coordinates, we obtain the symmetric
Bubbling AdS space and 1/2 BPS geometries
We consider all 1/2 BPS excitations of AdS × S configurations in both type-IIB string theory and M-theory. In the dual field theories these excitations are described by free fermions. Configurations
Comments on string theory on AdS(3)
We study string propagation on $AdS_3$ times a compact space from an ``old fashioned'' worldsheet point of view of perturbative string theory. We derive the spacetime CFT and its Virasoro and current
Strings in $AdS_{3}$ and SL(2,R) WZW Model, 1
In this paper we study the spectrum of bosonic string theory on AdS3. We study classical solutions of the SL(2, R) WZW model, including solutions for long strings with non-zero winding number. We
Topological String on AdS_3 x N
We study the topologically twisted string theory on the general back-ground $AdS_3\times {\cal N}$ which is compatible with the world-sheet N=2 superconformal symmetry and is extensively discussed in
AdS3 black holes and a stringy exclusion principle
The duality relating near-horizon microstates of black holes obtained as orbifolds of a subset of AdS3 to the states of a conformal field theory is analyzed in detail. The SL(2,R)L?SL(2,R)R invariant
N = 4 topological strings
Abstract We show how to make a topological string theory starting from an N = 4 superconformal theory. The critical dimension for this theory is c = 2 (c = 6) . It is shown that superstrings (in both
Bubbling 1/2 BPS solutions of minimal six-dimensional supergravity
Abstract We continue our previous analysis [J.T. Liu, D. Vaman, W.Y. Wen, hep-th/0412043] of 1/2 BPS solutions to minimal 6d supergravity of bubbling form. We show that, by turning on an axion field
Strings in AdS_3 and the SL(2,R) WZW Model. Part 1: The spectrum
In this paper we study the spectrum of bosonic string theory on AdS_3. We study classical solutions of the SL(2,R) WZW model, including solutions for long strings with non-zero winding number. We
M theory and topological strings. 2.
The $R^2 F^{2g-2}$ terms of Type IIA strings on Calabi-Yau 3-folds, which are given by the corresponding topological string amplitudes (a worldsheet instanton sum for all genera), are shown to have a
