This paper studies a special class of states for the dual conformal field theories associated with supersymmetric $AdS_5\times X$ compactifications, where $X$ is a Sasaki-Einstein manifold with additional $U(1)$ symmetries. Under appropriate circumstances, it is found that elements of the chiral ring that maximize the additional $U(1)$ charge at fixed R-charge are in one to one correspondence with multitraces of a single composite field. This is also equivalent to Schur functions of the… 

BPS coherent states and localization

Abstract We introduce coherent states averaged over a gauge group action to study correlators of half BPS states in $$ \mathcal{N} $$ N = 4 SYM theory. The overlaps of these averaged coherent

Superposition induced topology changes in quantum gravity

A bstractWe show that superpositions of classical states in quantum gravity with fixed topology can lead to new classical states with a different topology. We study this phenomenon in a particular

Quiver asymptotics: N=1 free chiral ring

The large N generating functions for the counting of chiral operators in , four-dimensional quiver gauge theories have previously been obtained in terms of the weighted adjacency matrix of the quiver

Permutation centralizer algebras and multimatrix invariants

We introduce a class of permutation centralizer algebras which underly the combinatorics of multi-matrix gauge invariant observables. One family of such non-commutative algebras is parametrised by

Submatrix deconfinement and small black holes in AdS

A bstractLarge N gauged multi-matrix quantum mechanical models usually have a first order Hagedorn transition, related to deconfinement. In this transition the change of the energy and entropy is of

Hidden symmetries and large N factorisation for permutation invariant matrix observables

Abstract Permutation invariant polynomial functions of matrices have previously been studied as the observables in matrix models invariant under SN, the symmetric group of all permutations of N



Anti-de Sitter space and holography

Recently, it has been proposed by Maldacena that large $N$ limits of certain conformal field theories in $d$ dimensions can be described in terms of supergravity (and string theory) on the product of

Structure constants of β deformed super Yang-Mills

A bstractWe study the structure constants of the $ \mathcal{N}=1 $ beta deformed theory perturbatively and at strong coupling. We show that the planar one loop corrections to the structure constants

Extremal Correlators in the Ads/cft Correspondence

The non-renormalization of the 3-point functions $tr X^{k_1} tr X^{k_2} tr X^{k_3}$ of chiral primary operators in N=4 super-Yang-Mills theory is one of the most striking facts to emerge from the

Exact Correlators of Giant Gravitons from dual N=4 SYM

A class of correlation functions of half-BPS composite operators are computed exactly (at finite $N$) in the zero coupling limit of N=4 SYM theory. These have a simple dependence on the

Chiral Rings and Anomalies in Supersymmetric Gauge Theory

Motivated by recent work of Dijkgraaf and Vafa, we study anomalies and the chiral ring structure in a supersymmetric U(N) gauge theory with an adjoint chiral superfield and an arbitrary

Semiclassical strings in Sasaki-Einstein manifolds and long operators in Script N = 1 gauge theories

We study the AdS/CFT relation between an infinite class of 5-d Ypq Sasaki-Einstein metrics and the corresponding quiver theories. The long BPS operators of the field theories are matched to massless

Toric duality is Seiberg duality

We study four N = 1 SU(N) 6 gauge theories, with bi-fundamental chiral matter and a superpotential. In the infrared, these gauge theories all realize the low-energy world-volume description of N

A toy model for the AdS/CFT correspondence

We study the large-N gauged quantum mecchanics for a single hermitean matrix in the Harmonic oscillator potential well as a toy model for the AdS/CFT correspondence. We argue that the dual geometry

Four-point functions in N = 4 SYM

A new derivation is given of four-point functions of charge Q chiral primary multiplets in N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory. A compact formula, valid for arbitrary Q, is given which is
