|Title:||Warped anti-de Sitter spaces from brane intersections in type II string theory|
|Date:||Tue, Jun 08, 2010, 13:15 - 14:45|
|Place:||Seminar Room A|
Part 1: In the first part of the talk I will give the basic facts on string theory D-branes and supergravity black branes.
Part 2: In the second part of the talk, I will present explicit type II string constructions of backgrounds containing warped and squashed anti de Sitter spaces. These are obtained via T duality from brane intersections. I'll also discuss their supersymmetry properties and some special limits.
