# The Gauge/String Correspondence Towards Realistic Gauge Theories 1

@article{Imeroni2003TheGC, title={The Gauge/String Correspondence Towards Realistic Gauge Theories 1}, author={Emiliano Imeroni}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2003} }

This report presents some studies of the gauge/string theory correspondence, a deep relation that is possible to establish between quantum field theories with local gauge symmetry and superstring theories including gravity. In its original version, known as AdS/CFT duality, the correspondence involves N = 4 Super Yang–Mills theory in four space-time dimensions, which is a superconformal theory with a high degree of supersymmetry, thus very far from describing the physical world. We explore…
