Operators with Large R-Charge in N=4 Yang-Mills Theory

Abstract It has been recently proposed that string theory in the background of a plane wave corresponds to a certain subsector of the N=4 supersymmetric Yang–Mills theory. This correspondence follows

The Gauge/String Correspondence Towards Realistic Gauge Theories 1

This report presents some studies of the gauge/string theory correspondence, a deep relation that is possible to establish between quantum field theories with local gauge symmetry and superstring

String Theory on Five Dimensional Anti de Sitter Space-Times: Fundamental Aspects and Applications

In this thesis we study basic properties and applications of String Theory on AdS5 backgrounds. We do this in the framework of the AdS/CFT Correspondence and use our results to learn about four

The near-Penrose limit of AdS/CFT

The conjectured duality between type IIB string theory on AdS5 x S5 and N = 4 SU(Nc) super Yang-Mills theory in four dimensions simplifies in the Penrose limit or, in other words, when the string's

Field Theory Correlators and String Theory

It appears that string-M-theory is the only viable candidate for a complete theory of matter. It must therefore contain both gravity and QCD. What is particularly surprising is the recent conjecture

Gauge-string duality for superconformal deformations of N=4 super Yang-Mills theory

We analyze in detail the relation between an exactly marginal deformation of N=4 SYM - the Leigh-Strassler or ``beta-deformation'' - and its string theory dual (recently constructed in

Correlation functions in a cascading N=1 gauge theory from supergravity

We study fluctuations around the warped conifold supergravity solution of Klebanov and Tseytlin [hep-th/0002159], known to be dual to a cascading N=1 gauge theory. Although this supergravity

Quantum aspects of gauge theories , supersymmetry and unification

This is an introductory review of the AdS/CFT correspondence and of the ideas that led to its formulation. We show how comparison of stacks of D3-branes with corresponding supergravity solutions



The Large-N Limit of Superconformal Field Theories and Supergravity

We show that the large-N limits of certainconformal field theories in various dimensions includein their Hilbert space a sector describing supergravityon the product of anti-de Sitter spacetimes,

Absorption by branes and Schwinger terms in the world volume theory


We describe a field theoretic formulation for one-dimensional string theory. It is given by the collective field representation of the matrix model and leads to a physical interpretation of the

A Planar Diagram Theory for Strong Interactions

Higher-dimensional resolution of dilatonic black-hole singularities

We show that the four-dimensional extreme dilaton black hole with dilaton coupling constant can be interpreted as a completely non-singular, non-dilatonic, black p-brane in (4+p) dimensions provided
