Spacetime supersymmetry in AdS3 backgrounds

David Berenstein, Robert G. Leigh

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We construct string target spaceti mes with AdS3 X X geometry, which have an N = 2 spacetime superconformal algebra. X is found to be a U(1) fibration over a manifold which is a target for an N = 2 worldsheet conformal field theory. We emphasize theories with free field realizations where in principle it is possible to compute the full one-particle string spectrum.
