We compute the sum over flat surfaces of disc topology with arbitrary number of conical singularities. To that end, we explore and generalize a specific case of the matrix model of dually weighted… Expand

A large class of two-dimensional dilaton-gravity theories in asymptotically AdS2 spacetimes are holographically dual to a matrix integral, interpreted as an ensemble average over Hamiltonians.… Expand

We review some recent attempts to extract information about the nature of quantum gravity, with and without matter, by quantum field theoretical methods. More specifically, we work within a covariant… Expand

We uncover a surprising correspondence between a non-perturbative formulation of three-dimensional Lorentzian quantum gravity and a hermitian two-matrix model with ABAB-interaction. The gravitational… Expand

We explore an extended coupling constant space of 4d regularized Euclidean quantum gravity, dened via the formalism of dynamical triangulations. We add a measure term which can also serve as a… Expand

This thesis is devoted to the study of correlation functions in N = 4 superconformal YangMills theory. We focus on a class of four point functions for which we achieve formal results at finite… Expand

The coupling of conformal field theories to 2-d gravity may be studied in the conformal gauge. As an application, the results of Knizhnik, Polyakov and Zamolodchikov for the scaling dimensions of… Expand
