Supersymmetric Gauge Theories and the AdS / CFT Correspondence ∗ TASI 2001 Lecture Notes

  title={Supersymmetric Gauge Theories and the AdS / CFT Correspondence ∗ TASI 2001 Lecture Notes},
  author={Eric D’Hoker and Daniel Z. Freedman},
In these lecture notes we first assemble the basic ingredients of supersymmetric gauge theories (particularly N=4 super-Yang-Mills theory), supergravity, and superstring theory. Brane solutions are surveyed. The geometry and symmetries of anti-de Sitter space are discussed. The AdS/CFT correspondence of Maldacena and its application to correlation functions in the the conformal phase of N=4 SYM are explained in considerable detail. A pedagogical treatment of holographic RG flows is given… CONTINUE READING
