Wilson loops and minimal surfaces
The AdS-CFT correspondence suggests that the Wilson loop of the large N gauge theory with $\mathcal{N}=4$ supersymmetry in four dimensions is described by a minimal surface inExpand

From Weak to Strong Coupling in ABJM Theory
The partition function of $${\mathcal{N}=6}$$ supersymmetric Chern–Simons-matter theory (known as ABJM theory) on $${\mathbb{S}^3}$$ , as well as certain Wilson loop observables, are captured by aExpand

All-genus calculation of Wilson loops using D-branes
The standard prescription for calculating a Wilson loop in the AdS/CFT correspondence is by a string world-sheet ending along the loop at the boundary of AdS. For a multiply wrapped Wilson loop thisExpand

Green-Schwarz string in AdS5 × S5: semiclassical partition function
A systematic approach to the study of semiclassical fluctuations of strings in AdS5 ? S5 based on the Green-Schwarz formalism is developed. We show that the string partition function is well definedExpand

Supersymmetric Wilson loops on S**3.
This paper studies in great detail a family of supersymmetric Wilson loop operators in = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory we have recently found. For a generic curve on an S3 in space-time theExpand

Gauge theory loop operators and Liouville theory
We propose a correspondence between loop operators in a family of four dimensional $$ \mathcal{N} $$ = 2 gauge theories on S4 — including Wilson, ‘t Hooft and dyonic operators — and Liouville theoryExpand

A supermatrix model for [FORMULA] = 6 super Chern-Simons-matter theory
We construct the Wilson loop operator of [FORMULA] = 6 super Chern-Simons-matter which is invariant under half of the supercharges of the theory and is dual to the simplest macroscopic open string inExpand

Generalized quark-antiquark potential at weak and strong coupling
We study a two-parameter family of Wilson loop operators in $ \mathcal{N} = 4 $ super-symmetric Yang-Mills theory which interpolates smoothly between the 1/2 BPS line or circle and a pair ofExpand
