Integrability of type II superstrings on Ramond-Ramond backgrounds in various dimensions
We consider type II superstrings on AdS backgrounds with Ramond-Ramond flux in various dimensions. We realize the backgrounds as supercosets and analyze explicitly two classes of models: non-critical
N = 2 sigma models for Ramond-Ramond backgrounds
Using the U(4) hybrid formalism, manifestly N = (2,2) worldsheet supersymmetric sigma models are constructed for the type-IIB superstring in Ramond-Ramond backgrounds. The Kahler potential in these N
Non-Critical Covariant Superstrings
We construct a covariant description of non-critical superstrings in even dimensions. We construct explicitly supersymmetric hybrid type variables in a linear dilaton background, and study an
Non-critical supergravity (d > 1) and holography
In this paper we investigate the supergravity equations of motion associated with non-critical (d > 1) type-II string theories that incorporate RR forms. Using a superpotential formalism we determine
Flux backgrounds in 2D string theory
We study RR flux backgrounds in two dimensional type 0 string theories. In particular, we study the relation between the 0A matrix model and the extremal black hole in two dimensions. Using T-duality
Flux backgrounds in 2 D string theory
We study RR flux backgrounds in two dimensional type 0 string theories. In particular, we study the relation between the 0A matrix model and the extremal black hole in two dimensions. Using T-duality
Thermodynamics of black holes in two (and higher) dimensions
A comprehensive treatment of black hole thermodynamics in two-dimensional dilaton gravity is presented. We derive an improved action for these theories and construct the Euclidean path integral. An
CLOSED AND OPEN STRING THEORIES IN NON-CRITICAL BACKGROUNDS
This thesis is a study of closed and open string theories in low dimensional spacetimes, and the various relations between these theories. In particular, we focus on the theory of the two-dimensional

Superstrings and topological strings at large N
We embed the large N Chern–Simons/topological string duality in ordinary superstrings. This corresponds to a large N duality between generalized gauge systems with N=1 supersymmetry in four
Exactly solvable models of two-dimensional dilaton gravity and quantum eternal black holes
A new approach to the exact solvability of dilaton gravity theories is suggested which appeals directly to the structure of field equations. It is shown that black holes regular at the horizon are

We review (mainly) quantum effects in the theories where the gravity sector is described by metric and dilaton. The one-loop effective action for dilatonic gravity in two and four dimensions is

TLDR
A large class of modifications of the standard Lagrangian for two-dimensional dilaton gravity have extremal solutions which are nonsingular analogues of the extremal Reissner-Nordstr\"om spacetime, and it is possible that quantum deformations of these extremal solution are the end point of Hawking evaporation when the models are coupled to matter.
