We make contact between the infinite-dimensional non-local symmetry of the type-IIB superstring on AdS5 × S5 and a non-abelian infinite-dimensional symmetry algebra for the weakly coupled superconformal gauge theory. We explain why the planar limit of the one-loop dilatation operator is the hamiltonian of a spin chain, and show that it commutes with the g2N = 0 limit of the non-abelian charges. 
Spin Models and Superconformal Yang-Mills Theory
Abstract We apply novel techniques in planar superconformal Yang–Mills theory which stress the role of the Yangian algebra. We compute the first two Casimirs of the Yangian, which are identified with
Yangian Symmetry and Integrability of Planar N=4 Supersymmetric Yang-Mills Theory.
It is proved that the classical equations of motion of the model close onto themselves under the action of Yangian generators, and the relationship serves as a criterion for integrability in planar gauge theories by explicitly checking that it applies to the integrable Aharony-Bergman-Jafferis-Maldacena theory but not to the nonintegrable N=1 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory.
Aspects of Integrability in N =4 SYM
Various recently developed connections between supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories in four dimensions and two dimensional integrable systems serve as crucial ingredients in improving our understanding
Classical/quantum integrability in non-compact sector of AdS/CFT
We discuss non-compact SL(2,R) sectors in N=4 SYM and in AdS string theory and compare their integrable structures. We formulate and solve the Riemann-Hilbert problem for the finite gap solutions of

T-Duality, dual conformal symmetry and integrability for strings on AdS5 × S5
In recent years two intriguing observations have been made for = 4 super Yang–Mills theory and for superstrings on AdS5 × S5: In the planar limit the computation of the spectrum is vastly simplified
Yangian Symmetry in D=4 Superconformal Yang-Mills Theory

We demonstrate that the one-loop dilatation generator for the scalar sector of a certain perturbation of N=4 Super Yang-Mills with fundamentals is the Hamiltonian of an integrable spin chain with
The algebra of transition matrices for the AdS 5 × S 5 superstring

Hidden Symmetries of the AdS_5 x S^5 Superstring
Attempts to solve Yang-Mills theory must eventually face the problem of analyzing the theory at intermediate values of the coupling constant. In this regime neither perturbation theory nor the
