# Three-point correlation functions from semiclassical circular strings

@article{Hernndez2010ThreepointCF, title={Three-point correlation functions from semiclassical circular strings}, author={R. Hern{\'a}ndez}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2010} }

The strong-coupling limit of three-point correlation functions of local operators can be analyzed beyond the supergravity regime using vertex operators representing spinning string states. When two of the vertex operators correspond to heavy string states having large quantum numbers, while the third operator corresponds to a light state with fixed charges, the correlator can be computed in the large string tension limit by means of a semiclassical approximation. We study the case when the… Expand
