# Introduction to Gauge/Gravity Duality

@inproceedings{Polchinski2010IntroductionTG, title={Introduction to Gauge/Gravity Duality}, author={Joseph Polchinski}, year={2010} }

These lectures are an introduction to gauge/gravity duality, presented at TASI 2010. The first three sections present the basics, focusing on $AdS_5 \times S^5$. The last section surveys a variety of ways to generate duals of reduced symmetry.
