New AdS$_2$ supergravity duals of 4d SCFTs with defects

  title={New AdS\$\_2\$ supergravity duals of 4d SCFTs with defects},
  author={Yolanda Lozano and Nicol{\`o} Petri and Cristian Risco},
We construct new families of AdS2 × S × S solutions with 4 supercharges in Type II supergravities. We show that subclasses of these solutions can be interpreted in terms of defect branes embedded in 4d N = 4 SYM, or orbifolds thereof. This is explicitly realised by showing that the solutions asymptote locally to AdS5×S/Zn, in Type IIB, or its T-dual background, in Type IIA. The latter is a Gaiotto-Maldacena geometry realised on an intersection of D4 and NS5 branes. We extend the Type IIA… Expand

N=(0,4) Black String Chains
We construct black string solutions in Type IIA supergravity arising from intersecting D2-D4D6-NS5 branes in the presence of fractional D4-branes. The fractional D4-branes arise from D6-branesExpand


Surface defects in the D4-D8 brane system
A bstractA new class of exact supersymmetric solutions is derived within minimal d = 6 F(4) gauged supergravity. These flows are all characterized by a non-trivial radial profile for the 2-form gaugeExpand
New Advancements in AdS/CFT in Lower Dimensions
We review recent developments in the study of the AdS/CFT correspondence in lower dimensions. We start by summarising the classification of AdS3×S2 solutions in massive type IIA supergravity with (0,Expand
AdS2 × S2 × CY2 solutions in Type IIB with 8 supersymmetries
We present a new infinite family of Type IIB supergravity solutions preserving eight supercharges. The structure of the space is AdS2 × S2 × CY2 × S1 fibered over an interval. These solutions can beExpand

Near-horizon solutions for D3-branes ending on 5-branes

1/2-BPS states in M theory and defects in the dual CFTs
We study supersymmetric branes in AdS7 × S4 and AdS4 × S7. We show that in the former case the membranes should be viewed as M5 branes with fluxes and we identify two types of such fivebranes (theyExpand
