Title AdS solitons with magnetic flux - degenerate supersymmetric solutions
Abstract I will describe some asymptotically AdS solitons with a Wilson line wrapping a circle in the boundary. There are bulk solutions with a magnetic flux determined by the Wilson line, which generalize the usual AdS soliton, and can also be thought of as AdS versions of the Melvin solution in flat space. There are other bulk solutions where the circle doesn"t contract in the bulk, with a constant gauge potential in the bulk. I will show that both solutions are supersymmetric for a special value of the Wilson loop, and the supersymmetric solutions are degenerate.
