Wilson loops and minimal surfaces

- N. Drukker, D. Gross, H. Ooguri
- Physics
- 27 April 1999

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 in… Expand

From Weak to Strong Coupling in ABJM Theory

- N. Drukker, M. Mariño, P. Putrov
- Physics, Mathematics
- 22 July 2010

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 a… Expand

All-genus calculation of Wilson loops using D-branes

- N. Drukker, B. Fiol
- Physics
- 14 January 2005

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 this… Expand

Green-Schwarz string in AdS5 × S5: semiclassical partition function

- N. Drukker, D. Gross, A. Tseytlin
- Physics
- 28 January 2000

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 defined… Expand

Supersymmetric Wilson loops on S**3.

- N. Drukker, S. Giombi, R. Ricci, D. Trancanelli
- Physics
- 20 November 2007

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 the… Expand

Gauge theory loop operators and Liouville theory

- N. Drukker, J. Gomis, T. Okuda, J. Teschner
- Physics
- 7 September 2009

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 theory… Expand

A supermatrix model for [FORMULA] = 6 super Chern-Simons-matter theory

- N. Drukker, D. Trancanelli
- Physics
- 2010

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 in… Expand

Generalized quark-antiquark potential at weak and strong coupling

- N. Drukker, V. Forini
- Physics
- 25 May 2011

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 of… Expand
