In recent years two intriguing observations have been made for 𝒩 = 4 super Yang–Mills theory and for superstrings on AdS5 × S5: In the planar limit the computation of the spectrum is vastly simplified by the apparent integrability of the models. Furthermore, planar scattering amplitudes of the gauge theory display remarkable features which have been attributed to the appearance of a dual superconformal symmetry. Here we review the connection of these two developments from the point of view of… 

Review of AdS/CFT Integrability, Chapter V.2: Dual Superconformal Symmetry

Scattering amplitudes in planar $${\mathcal{N}=4}$$ super Yang–Mills theory reveal a remarkable symmetry structure. In addition to the superconformal symmetry of the Lagrangian of the theory, the

Yangian Symmetry in N=4 super Yang-Mills

In this paper we review recent results on symmetries in N=4 super Yang-Mills theory. Symmetries are of invaluable help in studying and constraining the scattering amplitudes, and there has been a lot

Minimal surfaces of the AdS 5 × S 5 ?> superstring and the symmetries of super Wilson loops at strong coupling

Based on an extension of the holographic principle to superspace, we provide a strong-coupling description of smooth super Wilson loops in  = 4 ?> super Yang–Mills theory in terms of minimal

Fermionic T-duality: A snapshot review

Through a self-dual mapping of the geometry AdS5 x S5, fermionic T-duality provides a beautiful geometric interpretation of hidden symmetries for scattering amplitudes in N=4 super-Yang-Mills.

Self-duality of Green-Schwarz sigma-models

We study fermionic T-duality symmetries of integrable Green-Schwarz sigma-models on Anti-de-Sitter backgrounds with Ramond-Ramond fluxes, constructed as $ {\mathbb{Z}_4} $ supercosets of

Exact superconformal and Yangian symmetry of scattering amplitudes

We review recent progress in the understanding of symmetries for scattering amplitudes in superconformal Yang–Mills theory. It is summarized how the superficial breaking of superconformal symmetry by

Dual conformal transformations of smooth holographic Wilson loops

A bstractWe study dual conformal transformations of minimal area surfaces in AdS5 ×S5 corresponding to holographic smooth Wilson loops and some other related observables. To act with dual conformal

Exacting N=4 Superconformal Symmetry

Tree level scattering amplitudes in N = 4 super Yang-Mills theory are al- most, but not exactly invariant under the free action of the N = 4 superconformal algebra. What causes the non-invariance is

Symmetries of the N=4 SYM S-matrix

Under the assumption of a CSW generalization to loop amplitudes in N=4 SYM, (1) We prove that, formally the S-matrix is superconformal invariant to any loop order, and (2) We argue that

We study the fermionic T-duality symmetry of integrable Green-Schwarz sigma-models on AdS backgrounds with Ramond-Ramond fluxes in various dimensions. We show that sigma-models based on supercosets

A Note on dual superconformal symmetry of the N=4 super Yang-Mills S-matrix

We present a supersymmetric recursion relation for tree-level scattering amplitudes in N=4 super Yang-Mills. Using this recursion relation, we prove that the tree-level S matrix of the maximally

A relation between approaches to integrability in superconformal Yang-Mills theory

We make contact between the infinite-dimensional non-local symmetry of the type-IIB superstring on AdS5 × S5 and a non-abelian infinite-dimensional symmetry algebra for the weakly coupled

Hidden Symmetries of the AdS_5 x S^5 Superstring

Attempts to solve Yang-Mills theory must eventually face the problem of analyzing the theory at intermediate values of the coupling constant. In this regime neither perturbation theory nor the

It is argued that semiclassical string energies yield information on the quantum spectrum of the string in the limit of large angular momenta on the S5, leading to an asymptotic all-loop conjecture for the gauge theory Bethe equations.
