Borsato, R., Olsson-Sax, O., Sfondrini, A. & Stefanski, B. (2014). The complete AdS3 ×S3 × T4 worldsheet S matrix. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2014(10), doi: 10.1007/JHEP10(2014)066


We derive the non-perturbative worldsheet S matrix for fundamental excitations of Type IIB superstring theory on AdS3 ×S3 × T4 with Ramond-Ramond flux. To this end, we study the off-shell symmetry algebra of the theory and its representations. We use these to determine the S matrix up to scalar factors and we derive the crossing equations that these scalar factors satisfy. Our treatment automatically includes fundamental massless excitations, removing a long-standing obstacle in using integrability to study the AdS3/CFT2 correspondence.
