Liouville Field Theory — A decade after the revolution

- Y. Nakayama
- Physics
- 2 February 2004

We review recent developments (up to January 2004) of the Liouville field theory and its matrix model dual. This review consists of three parts. In part I, we review the bosonic Liouville theory.… Expand

Boundary states for the rolling D-branes in NS5 background

- Y. Nakayama, Y. Sugawara, H. Takayanagi
- Physics
- 21 June 2004

In this paper we construct the time dependent boundary states describing the ``rolling D-brane solutions'' in the NS5 background discovered recently by Kutasov by means of the classical DBI analysis.… Expand

Weak gravity conjecture in the AdS/CFT correspondence

- Y. Nakayama, Y. Nomura
- Physics
- 4 September 2015

We study implications of the weak gravity conjecture in the AdS/CFT correspondence. Unlike in Minkowski spacetime, Anti-de Sitter (AdS) spacetime has a physical length scale, so that the conjecture… Expand

Index for orbifold quiver gauge theories

- Y. Nakayama
- Physics
- 22 December 2005

Abstract We compute the index for orbifold quiver gauge theories. We compare it with the results obtained from the type IIB supergravity (superstring) on AdS 5 × S 5 / Γ .

Bulk locality and boundary creating operators

- Y. Nakayama, H. Ooguri
- Physics
- 15 July 2015

A bstractWe formulate a minimum requirement for CFT operators to be localized in the dual AdS. In any spacetime dimensions, we show that a general solution to the requirement is a linear… Expand

What Maxwell Theory in D 4 teaches us about scale and conformal invariance

- S. El-Showk, Y. Nakayama, S. Rychkov
- Physics
- 27 January 2011

The free Maxwell theory in d ≠ 4 dimensions provides a physical example of a unitary, scale invariant theory which is NOT conformally invariant. The easiest way to see this is that the field strength… Expand

Non-relativistic M2-brane gauge theory and new superconformal algebra

- Y. Nakayama, M. Sakaguchi, Kentaroh Yoshida
- Physics
- 12 February 2009

We study non-relativistic limits of the = 6 Chern-Simons-Matter theory that arises as a low-energy limit of the M2-brane gauge theory with background flux. The model admits several different… Expand

Scale invariance vs conformal invariance

- Y. Nakayama
- Physics
- 4 February 2013

In this review article, we discuss the distinction and possible equivalence between scale invariance and conformal invariance in relativistic quantum field theories. Under some technical assumptions,… Expand

Bootstrapping phase transitions in QCD and frustrated spin systems

- Y. Nakayama, T. Ohtsuki
- Physics
- 23 July 2014

In view of its physical importance in predicting the order of chiral phase transitions in QCD and frustrated spin systems, we perform the conformal bootstrap program of… Expand

Crosscap states in N=2 Liouville theory

- Y. Nakayama
- Physics
- 3 September 2004

Abstract We construct crosscap states in the N = 2 Liouville theory from the modular bootstrap method. We verify our results by comparing it with the calculation from the minisuperspace approximation… Expand
