A remarkable consequence of the AdS/CFT correspondence is the nonperturbative derivation of dimensional counting rules for hard scattering processes. Using string/gauge duality we derive the QCD power behavior of light-front Fock-state hadronic wavefunctions for hard scattering in the large-r region of the AdS space from the conformal isometries which determine the scaling of string states as we approach the boundary from the interior of AdS space. The nonperturbative scaling results are… Expand
Applications of AdS/CFT Duality to QCD ⁄
Even though quantum chromodynamics is a broken conformal theory, the AdS/CFT correspondence has led to important insights into the properties of QCD. For example, as shown by Polchinski andExpand
Nearly conformal QCD and AdS/CFT
The AdS/CFT correspondence is a powerful tool to study the properties of conformal QCD at strong coupling in terms of a higher dimensional dual gravity theory. The power-law falloff of scatteringExpand

Hadronic spectra and light-front wave functions in holographic QCD.
Effective four dimensional Schrödinger equations for the bound states of massless quarks and gluons are derived which exactly reproduce the anti-de Sitter conformal field theory results and give a realistic description of the light-quark meson and baryon spectrum as well as the form factors for space-like Q2.

Hard scattering in the M-theory dual for the QCD string
Abstract Conventional superstring amplitudes in flat space exhibits exponential fall off at wide angle in contrast to the power law behavior found in QCD. It has recently been argued by PolchinskiExpand
Hard scattering and gauge/string duality.
It is found that the amplitudes are hard in high-energy fixed-angle scattering of glueballs in confining gauge theories that have supergravity duals, a consequence of the warped geometry of the dual theory. Expand
Deep Inelastic Scattering and Gauge/String Duality
We study deep inelastic scattering in gauge theories which have dual string descriptions. As a function of gN we find a transition. For small gN, the dominant operators in the OPE are the usual ones,Expand
