Correlation functions in perturbative N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory are examined in the Berenstein-Maldacena-Nastase (BMN) limit. We demonstrate that non-extremal four-point functions ofâ€¦ (More)

Perturbative computations of the expectation value of the Wilson loop in N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory are reported. For the two special cases of a circular loop and a pair of anti-parallelâ€¦ (More)

The metric of a spacetime with a parallel plane (pp)-wave can be obtained in a certain limit of the space AdS 5 Ã—S 5. According to the AdS/CFT correspondence, the holographic dual of superstringâ€¦ (More)

The matrix models which are conjectured to compute the circle Wilson loop and its correlator with chiral primary operators are mapped onto normal matrix models. A fermion droplet picture analogous toâ€¦ (More)

We compute the coefficients of an infinite family of chiral primary operators in the local operator expansion of a circular Wilson loop in N = 4 supersymmetric YangMills theory. The computation sumsâ€¦ (More)

We show that, in the limit of zero string coupling, g s â†’ 0, the thermody-namic partition function of matrix string theory is identical to that of the finite temperature, discrete light-coneâ€¦ (More)

We compute the leading order perturbative correction to the static potential in N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory. We show that the perturbative expansion contains infrared logarithms which,â€¦ (More)

Abstract: We study non planar corrections to the spectrum of operators in the N = 2 supersymmetric Yang Mills theory which are dual to string states in the maximally supersymmetric pp-wave backgroundâ€¦ (More)

We examine the possibility that gauge field configurations on stacks of parallel Dp-branes support topological solitons. We give an exhaustive list of possible soliton charges for p â‰¤ 6. We alsoâ€¦ (More)

It is shown that the finite size corrections to the spectrum of the giant magnon solution of classical string theory, computed using the uniform light-cone gauge, are gauge invariant and haveâ€¦ (More)
