Title: New supersymmetric AdS{sub 3} solutions

Abstract

We construct infinite new classes of supersymmetric solutions of D=11 supergravity that are warped products of AdS{sub 3} with an eight-dimensional manifold M{sub 8} and have nonvanishing four-form flux. In order to be compact, M{sub 8} is constructed as an S{sup 2} bundle over a six-dimensional manifold B{sub 6} which is either Kaehler-Einstein or a product of Kaehler-Einstein spaces. In the special cases that B{sub 6} contains a two-torus, we also obtain new AdS{sub 3} solutions of type IIB supergravity, with constant dilaton and only five-form flux. Via the anti-de Sitter (AdS)-conformal field theory (CFT) correspondence the solutions with compact M{sub 8} will be dual to two-dimensional conformal field theories with N=(0,2) supersymmetry. Our construction can also describe noncompact geometries and we discuss examples in type IIB which are dual to four-dimensional N=1 superconformal theories coupled to stringlike defects.
