We give a worldsheet proof of the equivalence between the U(N) Chern-Simons gauge theory on S and the topological closed string theory on the resolved conifold geometry. When the ‘t Hooft coupling of the gauge theory is small, the dual closed string worldsheet develops a new branch. We show that the fluctuations of the worldsheet into this branch effectively correspond to “holes” on the worldsheet, generating an open string sector. This leads to a microscopic description of how the ‘t Hooft… CONTINUE READING
