On the Classical String Solutions and String/Field Theory Duality II
Based on the recently considered classical string configurations, in the framework of the semi-classical limit of the string/gauge theory correspondence, we describe a procedure for obtaining exact
Spin chains and string theory.
This work gives a map between the mean value of the spin in the boundary theory and the position of the string in the bulk, and shows how a string action can emerge from a gauge theory in the large-N limit.
Bethe ansatz and fluctuations in SU(3) Yang-Mills operators
We consider the scalar operators corresponding to semiclassical string states in AdS5 × S5 with the three angular momenta in S5 non-trivial. The string states recieve quantum corrections and we study
Light-Cone Wilson Loops and the String/Gauge Correspondence
We investigate a \Pi-shape Wilson loop in N=4 super Yang--Mills theory, which lies partially at the light-cone, and consider an associated open superstring in AdS_5 x S^5. We discuss how this Wilson
Short-long Strings Duality
We are considering the semi-classical string soliton solution of Gubser, Klebanov and Polyakov which represents highly excited states on the leading Regge trajectory, with large spin in AdS5. A
Quantum aspects of spinning strings
In this work we shall examine an important example for a duality between gauge theory and string theory, namely the AdS/CFT correspondence on AdS3×S×T 4 with RR-flux. Attention will be payed mainly
A Spin Chain from String Theory
We study the semiclassical spectrum of bosonic string theory on AdS_3 x S^1 in the limit of large AdS angular momentum. At leading semiclassical order, this is a subsector of the IIB superstring on
We review a special class of semiclassical string states in AdS_5 x S^5 which have a regular expansion of their energy in integer powers of the ratio of the square of string tension (`t Hooft


Gauge Theory Correlators from Non-Critical String Theory
Free large N supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory as a string theory
The strong version of Maldacena's AdS/CFT conjecture implies that the large-N expansion of free = 4 super-YM theory describes an interacting string theory in the extreme limit of high spacetime
In this article I attempt to collect some ideas, opinions and formulae which may be useful in solving the problem of gauge/string/space-time correspondence. This includes the validity of D-brane
Macroscopic strings as heavy quarks: Large-N gauge theory and anti-de Sitter supergravity
Abstract. We study some aspects of Maldacena's large-N correspondence between ${\cal N}=4$ superconformal gauge theory on the D3-brane and maximal supergravity on AdS$_5 \times S_5$ by introducing
The Large-N Limit of Superconformal Field Theories and Supergravity
We show that the large-N limits of certainconformal field theories in various dimensions includein their Hilbert space a sector describing supergravityon the product of anti-de Sitter spacetimes,
String theory and gravity
It is pointed out that string-loop effects may generate matter couplings for the dilaton allowing this scalar partner of the tensorial graviton to stay massless while contributing to macroscopic

Asymptotically free gauge theories. I
Asymptotically free gauge theories of the strong interactions are constructed and analyzed. The reasons for doing this are recounted, including a review of renormalization-group techniques and their
