Online Seminar

In this talk, I'm going to talk about the equivalence among (i) the weakly coupled worldsheet string theory described by the coset sigma model $\frac{SL(2,\mathbb{R})_k\times U(1)}{U(1)}\times S^3 \times T^4$ with $SL(2,\mathbb{R})$ WZW level $k\geq 2$, (ii) the full near horizon theory of the NS5 branes with $k$ NS5 branes wrapping $T^4\times S^1$, $p\gg1$ F1 strings wrapping $S^1$ and $n$ units of momentum along the $S^1$ and (iii) the single trace $T\bar{T}$ deformation of string theory in $AdS_3\times S^3\times T^4$.  As a check, I'll compute the spectrum of the spacetime theory by performing BRST quantization of the coset description of the worldsheet theory and show that it matches exactly with the one derived in the case of single trace $T\bar{T}$ deformed string theory in $AdS_3$. If time permits, I'll talk about the two-point function of the spacetime theory.
