In the large-$N$ and strong-coupling limit, maximally supersymmetric SU($N$) Yang--Mills theory in $(2 + 1)$ dimensions is conjectured to be dual to the decoupling limit of a stack of $N$ D$2$-branes, which may be described by IIA supergravity.We study this conjecture in the Euclidean setting using nonperturbative lattice gauge theory calculations.Our supersymmetric lattice construction naturally puts the theory on a skewed Euclidean 3-torus. Taking one cycle to have anti-periodic fermion… Expand

Confinement/deconfinement transition in the D0-brane matrix model -- A signature of M-theory?
We study the confinement/deconfinement transition in the D0-brane matrix model (often called the BFSS matrix model) and its one-parameter deformation (the BMN matrix model) numerically by latticeExpand
Introduction to Monte Carlo for Matrix Models
We consider a wide range of matrix models and study them using the Monte Carlo technique in the large N limit. The results we obtain agree with exact analytic expressions and recent numericalExpand


Supergravity from D0-brane Quantum Mechanics
The gauge/gravity duality conjecture claims the equivalence between gauge theory and superstring/M-theory. In particular, the one-dimensional gauge theory of D0-branes and type IIA string theoryExpand

N=6 superconformal Chern-Simons-matter theories, M2-branes and their gravity duals
We construct three dimensional Chern-Simons-matter theories with gauge groups U(N) × U(N) and SU(N) × SU(N) which have explicit = 6 superconformal symmetry. Using brane constructions we argue thatExpand
Twisted supersymmetries in lattice N = 4 super Yang-Mills theory
Recently it has been shown how a topologically twisted version of N = 4 super Yang-Mills may be discretized in such a way as to preserve one scalar supersymmetry at nonzero lattice spacing. TheExpand

A generalization of the AdS/CFT conjecture postulates a duality between IIA string theory and 16 supercharge Yang-Mills quantum mechanics in the large N 't Hooft limit. At low temperatures stringExpand
