Towards integrability for AdS3 / CFT2


Abstract: We review the recent progress towards applying worldsheet integrability techniques to the AdS3=CFT2 correspondence to nd its all-loop S matrix and Bethe-Yang equations.
We study in full detail the massive sector of AdS3 S3 T4 superstrings supported by
pure Ramond-Ramond (RR)  uxes. The extension of this machinery to accommodate
massless modes, to the AdS3 S3 S3 S1 pure-RR background and to backgrounds
supported by mixed background  uxes is also reviewed. While the results discussed here were found elsewhere, our exposition is original.
