A semi-classical limit of the gauge / string correspondence

  title={A semi-classical limit of the gauge / string correspondence},
  author={Steven S. Gubser and Igor R. Klebanov and Alexandre M. Polyakov},
A world-sheet sigma model approach is applied to string theories dual to fourdimensional gauge theories, and semi-classical soliton solutions representing highly excited string states are identified which correspond to gauge theory operators with relatively small anomalous dimensions. The simplest class of such states are strings on the leading Regge trajectory, with large spin in AdS5. These correspond to operators with many covariant derivatives, whose anomalous dimension grows… CONTINUE READING
