We observe that the pp wave limit of AdS5 ×M5 compactifications of type IIB string theory is universal, and maximally supersymmetric, as long as M is smooth and preserves some supersymmetry. We investigate a specific case, M = T 1,1. The dual N = 1 SCFT, describing D3-branes at a conifold singularity, has operators that we identify with the oscillators of the light-cone string in the universal pp wave background. The correspondence is remarkable in that it relies on the exact spectrum of… CONTINUE READING
