# Large N gauge theories and AdS/CFT correspondence

@article{Vecchia1999LargeNG, title={Large N gauge theories and AdS/CFT correspondence}, author={Paolo Di Vecchia}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={1999} }

In the first part of these lectures we will review the main aspects of large N QCD and the explicit results obtained from it. Then, after a review of the properties of N=4 super Yang-Mills, type IIB string theory and of AdS space, we briefly discuss the Maldacena conjecture. Finally in the last part of these lectures we will discuss the finite temperature case and we show how "hadronic" quantities as the string tension, the mass gap and the topological susceptibility can be computed in this…

Generalizations of the AdS/CFT correspondence

- Mathematics
- 2004

We consider generalizations of the AdS/CFT correspondence in which probe branes are embedded in gravity backgrounds dual to either conformal or confining gauge theories. These correspond to defect…

theta dependence of SU(N) gauge theories in the presence of a topological term

- Physics
- 2007

Abstract We review results concerning the θ dependence of 4D S U ( N ) gauge theories and QCD, where θ is the coefficient of the CP-violating topological term in the Lagrangian. In particular, we…

The first lecture is of a qualitative nature. We explain the concept and the uses of duality in string theory and field theory. The prospects to understand QCD, the theory of the strong interactions,…

Wilson loop and dimensional reduction in noncommutative gauge theories

- Physics
- 2001

Using the AdS/CFT correspondence we study UV behavior of Wilson loops in various noncommutative gauge theories. We get an area law in most cases and try to identify its origin. In D3 case, we may…
