Large spin strings in AdS3

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We consider strings with large spin in AdS3 × S3 × M with NS-NS background. We construct the string configurations as solutions of SL(2, R) WZW theory. We compute the relation between the space-time energy and spin, and show that the anomalous correction is constant, and not logarithmic in the spin. This is in contrast to the S-dual background with R-R charge where the anomalous correction is logarithmic.
