### Towards the deconstruction of M theory

- Physics
- 2004

We argue that there is an equivalence of M-theory on T3 × AN−1 with a four-dimensional non-supersymmetric quiver gauge theory on the Higgs branch. The quiver theory in question has gauge group…

### 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…

### 4D Conformal Field Theories and Strings on Orbifolds

- Physics
- 1998

We propose and test correspondences between 4D quantum field theories (QFTs) with N=2,thinsp1,thinsp0 (super)conformal invariance and type IIB string theory on various orbifolds of AdS{sub 5}{times}…

### D-branes, quivers, and ALE instantons

- Mathematics
- 1996

Effective field theories in type I and II superstring theories for D-branes located at points in the orbifold C^2/Z_n are supersymmetric gauge theories whose field content is conveniently summarized…

### Deconstructing (2,0) and Little String Theories

- Physics
- 2003

We argue that two four-dimensional strongly coupled superconformal field theories, on the Higgs branch in certain large N limits, become respectively (2,0) theory and (1,1) little string theory in…

### 4D constructions of supersymmetric extra dimensions and gaugino mediation

- Physics
- 2001

We present 4D gauge theories which at low energies coincide with higher dimensional supersymmetric (SUSY) gauge theories on a transverse lattice. We show that in the simplest case of pure 5D SUSY…

### Brane world supersymmetry, detuning, flipping and orbifolding

- Physics
- 2002

We emphasize the necessity of a delicate interplay between the gauge and gravitational sectors of five-dimensional brane worlds in creating phenomenologically relevant vacua. We discuss locally…
