We investigate supersymmetric flows in type IIB supergravity that preserve an SO(2, 2) space-time symmetry and asymptote to AdS5× S5 at both endpoints. The flows are constructed as Janus-type ℝ × AdS3 BPS domain-walls in the effective four-dimensional [SO(1, 1) × SO(6)] ⋉ ℝ12 gauged maximal supergravity describing the massless sector of type IIB supergravity compactified on S1 × S5. The compactification includes an S-duality hyperbolic twist along the S1 which, when combined with an appropriate…

We review recent progress in the study of S-folds in light of the gauge/gravity duality and the AdS swampland conjecture. S-folds correspond to non-geometric backgrounds of type IIB supergravity of

Exact half-BPS type IIB interface solutions II: flux solutions and multi-Janus

Regularity and topology conditions are imposed on the exact Type IIB solutions on AdS4 × S2 × S2 × Σ with 16 supersymmetries, which were derived in a companion paper [1]. We construct an infinite

Janus on the brane

We present a non-supersymmetric deformation of probe branes describing conformal defects of codimension two in AdS/CFT. The worldvolume of the probe branes is deformed from AdS p × S 1 embedded in an

Supersymmetric Janus solutions in four dimensions

A bstractWe use maximal gauged supergravity in four dimensions to construct the gravity dual of a class of supersymmetric conformal interfaces in the theory on the worldvolume of multiple M2-branes.

Exact half-BPS Type IIB interface solutions. I. Local solution and supersymmetric Janus

The complete Type IIB supergravity solutions with 16 supersymmetries are obtained on the manifold AdS4 ? S2 ? S2 ? ? with SO(2, 3) ? SO(3) ? SO(3) symmetry in terms of two holomorphic functions on a

Janus solutions in six-dimensional gauged supergravity

A bstractMotivated by an analysis of the sub-superalgebras of the five-dimensional superconformal algebra F (4), we search for the holographic duals to co-dimension one superconformal defects in 5d

String Theory Origin of Dyonic N=8 Supergravity and Its Chern-Simons Duals.

This work identifies the corresponding three-dimensional conformal field theory duals as super-Chern-Simons-matter theories with simple gauge group SU(N) and level k given by the Romans mass, and finds the first AdS4/CFT3 precision match in massive type IIA string theory.

Type II supergravity origin of dyonic gaugings

Dyonic gaugings of four-dimensional supergravity typically exhibit a richer vacuum structure compared to their purely electric counterparts, but their higher-dimensional origin often remains more

Holographic duals of 3d S-fold CFTs

A bstractWe construct non-geometric AdS4 solutions of IIB string theory where the fields in overlapping patches are glued by elements of the S-duality group. We obtain them by suitable quotients of

The Large-N Limit of Superconformal Field Theories and Supergravity

We show that the large-N limits of certainconformal field theories in various dimensions includein their Hilbert space a sector describing supergravityon the product of anti-de Sitter spacetimes,
