HET Seminar | Minjae Cho, Harvard University | "Strings in Ramond-Ramond (RR) Backgrounds from the Neveu-Schwarz-Ramond (NSR) Formalism"

** Please note special time and location **

It is commonly believed that the NSR formalism has limitations in describing type II strings in RR background. In this talk, I discuss how we can systematically describe RR flux backgrounds in the framework of closed superstring field theory based on the NSR formalism, and present two applications of the framework: the pp-wave background supported by 5-form flux and $AdS_3\times S^3\times M_4$ supported by mixed 3-form fluxes.
