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

Sourav Roychowdhury


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.
