We find a new sector of string theory in AdS5 × S5 describing non-relativistic superstrings in that geometry. The worldsheet theory of non-relativistic strings in AdS5 × S5 is derived and shown to reduce to a supersymmetric free field theory in AdS2. Non-relativistic string theory provides a new calculable setting in which to study holography. 
We briefly review a holography of non-relativistic (NR) string on AdS5×S5. The NR string can be regarded as a semiclassical string around an AdS2 classical solution corresponding to a straight Wilson
New Non-Relativistic String in AdS(5)xS(5)
We study non-relativistic limit of AdS5 × S background and determine corresponding Newton-Cartan fields. We also find canonical form of the new non-relativistic string in this background and discuss
Non-relativistic superbranes
Subtleties arising in the non-relativistic limit of relativistic branes are resolved, and a reparametrization-invariant and kappa-symmetric non-relativistic super p-brane action is obtained as a
Non-relativistic string and D-branes on AdS5 × S5 from semiclassical approximation
We show that non-relativistic actions of string and D-branes on AdS5???S5 can be reproduced as a semiclassical approximation of the string and D-brane actions around static 1/2 BPS configurations.
Non Relativistic D p Branes
We construct a kappa-symmetric and diffeomorphism-invariant non-relativistic Dp-brane action as a non-relativistic limit of a relativistic Dp-brane action in flat space. In a suitable gauge the
Non-relativistic String theory
We show how Newton-Cartan gravity can be generalized to String Newton-Cartan gravity which is identified as the proper geometry underlying non-relativistic string theory. Specific properties of
Relating non-relativistic string theories
Abstract Non-relativistic string theories promise to provide simpler theories of quantum gravity as well as tractable limits of the AdS/CFT correspondence. However, several apparently distinct
The Galilean superstring
A bstractThe action for a Galilean superstring is found from a non-relativistic limit of the closed Green-Schwarz (GS) superstring; it has zero tension and provides an example of a massless
Holographic Wilson loops
We show that all half-BPS Wilson loop operators in = 4 SYM – which are labeled by Young tableaus – have a gravitational dual description in terms of D5-branes or alternatively in terms of D3-branes
Non-relativistic non-BPS Dp-brane
Abstract We construct non-relativistic non-BPS Dp-brane action. Then we will study the properties of the tachyon kink solution on its world-volume. We will argue that this tachyon kink describes


Type IIB superstring action in AdS5 × S5 background
Abstract We construct the covariant κ-symmetric superstring action for a type IIB superstring on AdS5 ⊕ S5 background. The action is defined as a 2d σ-model on the coset superspace SU(2.2|4) SO(4,1)
Non-relativistic superbranes
Subtleties arising in the non-relativistic limit of relativistic branes are resolved, and a reparametrization-invariant and kappa-symmetric non-relativistic super p-brane action is obtained as a
Duality in the type-II superstring effective action
Abstract We derive the T -duality transformations that transform a general d = 10 solution of the type-IIA string with one isometry to a solution of the type-IIB string with one isometry and vice
Rotating solutions of non-relativistic string theory
Abstract We construct classical rotating solutions of non-relativistic string theory. The relation among the energy and angular momenta for these solutions is of the type E = J 2 . Some of the
From super-AdS5×S5 algebra to super-pp-wave algebra
The isometry algebras of the maximally supersymmetric solutions of IIB supergravity are derived by the Inonu–Wigner contractions of the super-AdS5×S5 algebra. The super-AdS5×S5 algebra allows
S-Duality and Noncommutative Gauge Theory
It is conjectured that strongly coupled, spatially noncommutative N = 4 Yang-Mills theory has a dual description as a weakly coupled open string theory in a near critical electric field, and that
On the energy crisis in anti-de sitter supersymmetry
The energy operator in AdS supersymmetry is formally positive, i.e., H ∼ Σα{Qα, Qα+}, but in supersymmetric field theories the standard energy density is not necessarily positive. Further,
Strings in background electric field, space / time noncommutativity and a new noncritical string theory
Searching for space/time noncommutativity we reconsider open strings in a constant background electric field. The main difference between this situation and its magnetic counterpart is that here
Green-Schwarz string in AdS5 × S5: semiclassical partition function
A systematic approach to the study of semiclassical fluctuations of strings in AdS5 ? S5 based on the Green-Schwarz formalism is developed. We show that the string partition function is well defined
Effective potential in two-dimensional anti-de sitter space
Methods of computing the one-loop effective potential in anti-de Sitter (AdS) space are studied taking the two-dimensional case as an explicit example. Use of the AdS eigenfunctions exhibits several
