The Light-Cone Effective Potential

It is shown how to calculate simple vacuum diagrams in light-cone quantum field theory. As an application, I consider the one-loop effective potential of phi^4 theory. The standard result is

Scalar propagator in the pp-wave geometry obtained from AdS5×S5

M-theory on a Time-dependent Plane-wave

We propose a matrix model on a homogeneous plane-wave background with 20 supersymmetries. This background is anti-Mach type and is equivalent to the time-dependent background. We study

String theory and the classical stability of plane waves

The presence of fields with negative mass-squared typically leads to some form of instability in standard field theories. The observation that, at least in the light-cone gauge, strings propagating

Penrose limits and maximal supersymmetry

We show that the maximally supersymmetric pp-wave of IIB superstring and M-theories can be obtained as a Penrose limit of the supersymmetric AdS × S solutions. In addition, we find that in a certain

Plane wave limits and T-duality

On lightcone string field theory from Super Yang-Mills and holography

We investigate the issues of holography and string interactions in the duality between SYM and the pp wave background. We argue that the Penrose diagram of the maximally supersymmetric pp-wave has a

A new maximally supersymmetric background of IIB superstring theory

We present a maximally supersymmetric IIB string background. The geometry is that of a conformally flat lorentzian symmetric space G/K with solvable G, with a homogeneous five-form flux. We give the

Strings in flat space and pp waves from N = 4 Super Yang Mills

We explain how the string spectrum in flat space and pp‐waves arises from the large N limit, at fixed gYM2, of U(N) N = 4 super Yang Mills. We reproduce the spectrum by summing a subset of the planar
