The holographic principle has become an extraordinary tool in theoretical physics, most notably in the form of the Anti-deSitter Conformal Field Theory (AdS/CFT ) correspondence, in which classical gravitational degrees of freedom in N -dimensions are related quantum field theory degrees of freedom in N 1 dimensions in the limit of a large number of fields. Here we present an account of the AdS/CFT correspondence, also known as the gauge/gravity duality, from its origins in the large N ’tHooft… CONTINUE READING
