Non-Abelian T-dual of Klebanov-Witten Background and its Penrose limits

Sourav Roychowdhury
Chennai Mathematical Institute.


In this talk I will discuss both Abelian and non-Abelian T-duals of Klebanov-Witten background (AdS_5 X T^{1,1}) and inspect their various Penrose limits. In particular I will show that these T-dual backgrounds admit pp-wave geometries in the neighbourhood of appropriate null geodesics. I will also discuss the closed string quantization on these resulting pp-wave backgrounds and comment on dual field theory.
