- Published 2004

We study weakly coupled SU (N) N = 4 super Yang-Mills theory on R × S 3 at infinite N , which has interesting thermodynamics, including a Hagedorn transition, even at zero Yang-Mills coupling. We calculate the exact one-loop partition function below the Hagedorn temperature. Our calculation employs the representation of the one-loop dilata-tion operator as a spin chain Hamiltonian acting on neighboring sites and a generalization of Pólya's counting of 'necklaces' (gauge-invariant operators) to… CONTINUE READING
