# Minimal AdS(3)

@article{Rastelli2005MinimalA, title={Minimal AdS(3)}, author={Leonardo Rastelli and Martijn Wijnholt}, journal={Advances in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics}, year={2005}, volume={11} }

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…

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…
