Title: Generalization of the Lunin-Maldacena transformation on the AdS{sub 5}xS{sup 5} background

Abstract

In this paper we consider a simple generalization of the method of Lunin and Maldacena for generating new string backgrounds based on TsT transformations. We study multishift Ts{center_dot}{center_dot}{center_dot}sT transformations applied to backgrounds with at least two U(1) isometries. We prove that the string currents in any two backgrounds related by Ts{center_dot}{center_dot}{center_dot}sT transformations are equal. Applying this procedure to the AdS{sub 5}xS{sup 5}, we find a new background and study some properties of the semiclassical strings.

  • We construct a one-parameter family of flat currents in AdS{sub 5}xS{sup 1} and AdS{sub 3}xS{sup 3} Green-Schwarz superstrings, which would naturally lead to a hierarchy of classical conserved nonlocal charges. In the former case we rewrite the AdS{sub 5}xS{sup 1} string using a new Z{sub 4}-graded base of the superalgebra su(2,2 vertical bar 2). In both cases the existence of the Z{sub 4} grading in the superalgebras plays a key role in the construction. As a result, we find that the flat currents, when formally written in terms of the G{sub 0}-gauge invariant lowercase 1-forms, take the same form asmore » the one in the AdS{sub 5}xS{sup 5} case.« less
  • Different aspects of particle dynamics on AdS{sub 2}xS{sup 2} background with two-form flux are discussed. These include solution of equations of motion, a canonical transformation to conformal mechanics, and an N=4 supersymmetric extension.
  • We study the anti-de Sitter/conformal field theory correspondence with boundary conditions AdS{sub 5}xS{sup 5}/Z{sub k}, where the Z{sub k} acts freely but breaks all supersymmetry. While there are closed string tachyons at small 't Hooft coupling, there are no tachyons at large coupling. Nevertheless, we show that there is a nonperturbative instability directly analogous to the decay of the Kaluza-Klein vacuum. We discuss the implications of this instability for the strongly coupled dual field theory, and compare with earlier studies of this theory at weak coupling.
  • All cubic couplings in type IIB supergravity on AdS{sub 5}xS{sup 5} that involve two scalar fields s{sup I} that are mixtures of the five form field strength on S{sup 5} and the trace of the graviton on S{sup 5} are derived by using the covariant equations of motion and the quadratic action for type IIB supergravity on AdS{sub 5}xS{sup 5}. All corresponding three-point functions in SYM{sub 4} are calculated in the supergravity approximation. It is pointed out that the scalars s{sup I} correspond not to the chiral primary operators in the N=4 SYM but rather to a proper extension ofmore » the operators.

  • We consider the loop equation in four-dimensional N=4 SYM, which is a functional differential equation for the Wilson loop W(C) and expresses the propagation and the interaction of the string C. Our W(C) consists of the scalar and the gaugino fields as well as the gauge field. The loop C is specified by six bosonic coordinates y{sup i}(s) and two fermionic coordinates {zeta}(s) and {eta}(s) besides the four-dimensional spacetime coordinates x{sup {mu}}(s). We have successfully determined, to quadratic order in {zeta} and {eta}, the parameters in W(C) and the loop differential operator so that the equation of motion of SYMmore » can be correctly reproduced to give the nonlinear term of W(C). We extract the most singular and linear part of our loop equation and compare it with the Hamiltonian constraint of the string propagating on AdS{sub 5}xS{sup 5} background.« less
