Towards the deconstruction of M theory

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
