# Free large N supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory as a string theory

@article{HaggiMani2000FreeLN, title={Free large N supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory as a string theory}, author={Parviz Haggi-Mani and Bo Sundborg}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2000}, volume={2000}, pages={031-031} }

The strong version of Maldacena's AdS/CFT conjecture implies that the large-N expansion of free = 4 super-YM theory describes an interacting string theory in the extreme limit of high spacetime curvature relative to the string length. String states may then be understood as composed of SYM string bits. We investigate part of the low-lying spectrum of the tensionless (zero-coupling) limit and find a large number of states that are not present in the infinite tension (strong-coupling) limit…
