We study stringy fluctuations as a source for corrections to the Wilson loop as obtained from the superstring on AdS5 × S5/ = 4 SYM correspondence. We give a formal expression in terms of determinants of two-dimensional operators for the leading order correction. 
Wilson loops in SYM theory: From weak to strong coupling
Abstract We review calculations of Wilson loops in N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory using both the AdS/CFT correspondence and perturbation theory. We emphasize the cases in which resummation ofExpand
