We suggest and motivate a precise equivalence between uncompactified 11-dimensional M theory and the N={infinity} limit of the supersymmetric matrix quantum mechanics describing D0 branes. The… Expand

The operator product expansion for {open_quotes}small{close_quotes} Wilson loops in N=4, d=4 SYM theory is studied. The OPE coefficients are calculated in the large {ital N} and g{sub YM}{sup 2}N… Expand

A cosmological version of the holographic principle is proposed. Various consequences are discussed including bounds on equation of state and the requirement that the universe be infinite.

We present a model for high energy two body scattering in a quantum theory of gravity. The model is applicable for center of mass energies higher than the relevant Planck scale. At impact parameters… Expand

A bstractIn this paper, we study the physical significance of the thermodynamic volumes of AdS black holes using the Noether charge formalism of Iyer and Wald. After applying this formalism to study… Expand

It is demonstrated that mutual information contains the quantum entanglement part of theEntanglement entropy, which is otherwise dominated by the thermal entropy at large temperatures.Expand

A bstractWe explore the high and low temperature behavior of non-local observables in strongly coupled gauge theories that are dual to AdS. We develop a systematic expansion for equal time two-point… Expand
