We formulate the Hopf algebra underlying the su(2/2) world sheet S-matrix of the AdS{sub 5}xS{sup 5} string in the AdS/CFT correspondence. For this we extend the previous construction in the su(1/2) subsector due to Janik to the full algebra by specifying the action of the coproduct and the antipode on the remaining generators. The nontriviality of the coproduct is determined by length-changing effects and results in an unusual central braiding. As an application we explicitly determine the… 

The Classical r-Matrix of AdS/CFT and its Lie Bialgebra Structure

In this paper we investigate the algebraic structure of AdS/CFT in the strong-coupling limit. We propose an expression for the classical r-matrix with (deformed) $${\mathfrak{u}(2|2)}$$ symmetry,

Matrix reduction and the su(2|2) superalgebra in AdS/CFT correspondence

We study the supersymmetry generators Q, S on the 1-loop vectorless sector of N=4 super Yang-Mills theory, by reduction to the plane-wave matrix model. Using a coherent basis in the su(2|2) sector, a

AdS 3 / CFT 2 and q-Poincaré superalgebras

We discover that a certain deformation of the 1+1 dimensional Poincaré superalgebra is exactly realised in the massless sector of the AdS 3 / CFT 2 integrable scattering problem. Deformed Poincaré

An exceptional algebraic origin of the AdS/CFT Yangian symmetry

In the (2|2) spin chain motivated by the AdS/CFT correspondence, a novel symmetry extending the superalgebra (2|2) into (2|2) was found. We pursue the origin of this symmetry in the exceptional

The S-matrix algebra of the AdS2 X S2 superstring

In this paper we find the Yangian algebra responsible for the integrability of the AdS2 X S2 X T^6 superstring in the planar limit. We demonstrate the symmetry of the corresponding exact S-matrix in

The S-matrix algebra of the AdS 2 × S 2 superstring

In this paper we find the Yangian algebra responsible for the integrability of the AdS2 × S×T 6 superstring in the planar limit. We demonstrate the symmetry of the corresponding exact S-matrix in the

Classical Lie Bialgebras for AdS/CFT Integrability by Contraction and Reduction

Integrability of the one-dimensional Hubbard model and of the factorised scattering problem encountered on the worldsheet of AdS strings can be expressed in terms of a peculiar quantum algebra. In

Worldsheet scattering in AdS(5) x S**5

We calculate the S-matrix in the gauge-fixed sigma-model on AdS(5) x S-5 to the leading order in perturbation theory, and analyze how supersymmetry is realized on the scattering states. A mild

Yangians, S-matrices and AdS/CFT

This review is meant to be an account of the properties of the infinite-dimensional quantum group (specifically, Yangian) symmetry lying behind the integrability of the AdS/CFT spectral problem. In



The magnon kinematics of the AdS/CFT correspondence

The planar dilatation operator of N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills is the hamiltonian of an integrable spin chain whose length is allowed to fluctuate. We will identify the dynamics of length

Classical/quantum integrability in AdS/CFT

We discuss the AdS/CFT duality from the perspective of integrable systems and establish a direct relationship between the dimension of single trace local operators composed of two types of scalar


We review a special class of semiclassical string states in AdS_5 x S^5 which have a regular expansion of their energy in integer powers of the ratio of the square of string tension (`t Hooft

Hidden Symmetries of the AdS_5 x S^5 Superstring

Attempts to solve Yang-Mills theory must eventually face the problem of analyzing the theory at intermediate values of the coupling constant. In this regime neither perturbation theory nor the

The AdS 5 ×S 5 superstring worldsheet S matrix and crossing symmetry

An algebraic way to implement crossing relations for the AdS{sub 5}xS{sup 5} superstring worldsheet S matrix is proposed and generalized rapidities living on the universal cover of the parameter space which is constructed through an auxillary, coupling-constant dependent, elliptic curve.

The factorized S-matrix of CFT/AdS

We argue that the recently discovered integrability in the large-N CFT/AdS system is equivalent to diffractionless scattering of the corresponding hidden elementary excitations. This suggests that,

The su ( 2 | 3 ) Dynamic Spin Chain

The complete one-loop, planar dilatation operator of the N = 4 supercon-formal gauge theory was recently derived and shown to be integrable. Here, we present further compelling evidence for a

The su(2|2) dynamic S-matrix

We derive and investigate the S-matrix for the su(2|3) dynamic spin chain and for planar N = 4 super Yang–Mills. Due to the large amount of residual symmetry in the excitation picture, the S-matrix
