Crossing equations for mixed flux AdS3/CFT2 (UNUSUAL TIME)

room Zoom, instructions in abstract

I will give an overview of recent progress in understanding string theory in AdS3 backgrounds with a mixture of Ramond-Ramond and Neveu-Schwarz-Neveu-Schwarz three-form flux. Such theories are integrable, but provide many features not encountered in the more familiar case of pure Ramond-Ramond flux. In this talk I will explore the analytic structure of the dispersion relation of the world-sheet excitations and how it relates to the crossing equations of the two-particle S matrix. Determining the dressing phases of the mixed flux S matrix is the next major step in using integrability to the AdS3/CFT2 correspondence. -------- Part of London Integrability Journal Club.
