Since string theory on AdS3 with NSNS-flux is solvable in principle, AdS3/CFT2 correspondence with the string theory is expected to be useful for studying the general properties of holographic principle. Recently, it was claimed that string theory on AdS3 x X with NSNS-flux is dual to a symmetric orbifold MN/SN with a marginal deformation. Here the seed theory M consists of linear dilaton and CFT2 describing X. In this talk, I will derive the AdS3/CFT2 correspondence by applying recent discussion on the moduli localization of string amplitudes and CFT2 technique we developed to prove Fateev-Zamolodchikov-Zamolodchikov duality.


Professor Yasuaki Hikida received his PhD from the University of Tokyo in 2003 and continued his career as a postdoctoral fellow at Seoul National University, KEK (Japan) and DESY. Since 2016, he has been an Associate Professor at Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics.
