# Four Lectures On The Gauge/Gravity Correspondence

@article{Bertolini2003FourLO, title={Four Lectures On The Gauge/Gravity Correspondence}, author={Matteo Bertolini}, journal={International Journal of Modern Physics A}, year={2003}, volume={18}, pages={5647-5712} }

We review in a pedagogical manner some of the efforts aimed at extending the gauge/gravity correspondence to nonconformal supersymmetric gauge theories in four dimensions. After giving a general overview, we discuss in detail two specific examples: fractional D-branes on orbifolds and D-branes wrapped on supersymmetric cycles of Calabi–Yau spaces. We explore in particular which gauge theory information can be extracted from the corresponding supergravity solutions, and what the remaining open…
