A Fresh Look at AdS3/CFT2
Villa Garbald, Castasegna (CH)
Recent months saw remarkable advances in the study of the holographic correspondence between strings on AdS3 backgrounds and dual CFT2, in particular for backgrounds that do not involve any Ramond-Ramond three-form fluxes. These can be represended as Wess-Zumino-Witten models on the worldsheet, as well as integrable spin chains. Moreover, they appear to be related to free theories on the worldsheet by means of a generalised T-Tbar deformation. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together experts of different techniques relevant to this study, to foster new collaborations and progress. The workshop will focus on
Location and travel
Villa Garbald is a facility of ETH Zurich, but is not located in Zurich. Rather it is right on the border with Italy, between Chiavenna and Bregaglia. It takes little less than 5 hours to get there from Zurich, and little less than 4 from Milan (by public transport; coming by car takes 3h and 2h30, respectively).
