Semiclassical relativistic strings in S and long coherent operators in N=4 SYM theory


We consider the low energy effective action corresponding to the 1-loop, planar, dilatation operator in the scalar sector of N = 4 SU(N) SYM theory. For a general class of non-holomorphic “long” operators, of bare dimension L ≫ 1, it is a sigma model action with 8-dimensional target space and agrees with a limit of the phase-space string sigma model action… (More)
