The Large-N Limit of Superconformal Field Theories and Supergravity

- J. Maldacena
- Physics, Mathematics
- 27 November 1997

We show that the large-N limits of certainconformal field theories in various dimensions includein their Hilbert space a sector describing supergravityon the product of anti-de Sitter spacetimes,… Expand

N=6 superconformal Chern-Simons-matter theories, M2-branes and their gravity duals

- O. Aharony, O. Bergman, D. Jafferis, J. Maldacena
- Mathematics
- 6 June 2008

We construct three dimensional Chern-Simons-matter theories with gauge groups U(N) × U(N) and SU(N) × SU(N) which have explicit = 6 superconformal symmetry. Using brane constructions we argue that… Expand

Non-Gaussian features of primordial fluctuations in single field inflationary models

- J. Maldacena
- Mathematics
- 28 October 2002

We compute the three point correlation functions for primordial scalar and tensor fluctuations in single field inflationary models. We obtain explicit expressions in the slow roll limit where the… Expand

Strings in flat space and pp waves from N = 4 Super Yang Mills

- D. Berenstein, J. Maldacena, H. Nǎstase
- Physics
- 14 November 2002

We explain how the string spectrum in flat space and pp‐waves arises from the large N limit, at fixed gYM2, of U(N) N = 4 super Yang Mills. We reproduce the spectrum by summing a subset of the planar… Expand

A bound on chaos

- J. Maldacena, S. Shenker, D. Stanford
- Mathematics
- 4 March 2015

A bstractWe conjecture a sharp bound on the rate of growth of chaos in thermal quantum systems with a large number of degrees of freedom. Chaos can be diagnosed using an out-of-time-order correlation… Expand

Bubbling AdS space and 1/2 BPS geometries

- Hai Lin, O. Lunin, J. Maldacena
- Mathematics, Physics
- 16 September 2004

We consider all 1/2 BPS excitations of AdS × S configurations in both type-IIB string theory and M-theory. In the dual field theories these excitations are described by free fermions. Configurations… Expand

Remarks on the Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev model

- J. Maldacena, D. Stanford
- Physics
- 26 April 2016

The authors study in detail the quantum mechanical model of $N$ Majorana fermions with random interactions of a few fermions at a time (Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev model) in the large $N$ limit. At low… Expand

Wilson loops in large N field theories

- J. Maldacena
- Physics
- 1 March 1998

We propose a method to calculate the expectation values of an operator similar to the Wilson loop in the large $N$ limit of field theories. We consider… Expand

Eternal black holes in anti-de Sitter

- J. Maldacena
- Physics
- 13 June 2001

We propose a dual non-perturbative description for maximally extended Schwarzschild Anti-de-Sitter spacetimes. The description involves two copies of the conformal field theory associated to the AdS… Expand

Deforming field theories with U(1) × U(1) global symmetry and their gravity duals

- O. Lunin, J. Maldacena
- Physics
- 8 February 2005

We find the gravity dual of a marginal deformation of = 4 super Yang Mills, and discuss some of its properties. This deformation is intimately connected with an SL(2,) symmetry of the gravity theory.… Expand
