abstract:

Non-Abelian T-duality, a transformation in String Theory known since the 90’s, has been shown recently to be a powerful solution generating technique in supergravity. In this talk I will discuss various AdS backgrounds generated through this transformation, for which it is possible to give a dual CFT interpretation arising from Hanany-Witten brane set-ups.
