Plane Waves and Vacuum Interpolation

  • Guillermo A. Silva
  • Published 2002


A 1 2 -BPS family of time dependent plane wave spacetimes which give rise to exactly solvable string backgrounds is presented. In particular a solution which interpolates between Minkowski spacetime and the maximally supersymmetric homogeneous plane wave along a timelike direction is analyzed. We work in d = 4, N = 2 supergravity, but the results can be… (More)
