The relation between the dilatation operator of = 4 Yang-Mills theory and integrable spin chains makes it possible to compute the one-loop anomalous dimensions of all operators in the theory. In this paper we show how to apply the technology of integrable spin chains to the calculation of Yang-Mills correlation functions by expressing them in terms of matrix elements of spin operators on the corresponding spin chain. We illustrate this method with several examples in the SU(2) sector described…

Quantum integrability for three-point functions of maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory.
New algebraic structures are found that not only govern all two-loop corrections to the mixing of the operators but also automatically incorporate all one-loop diagrams correcting the tree-level Wick contractions.

The two-loop dilatation operator of N = 4 super Yang-Mills theory in the SO(6) sector
The dilatation operator of planar N = 4 super Yang-Mills in the pure scalar SO(6) sector is derived at the two-loop order. Representation theory allows for eight free coefficients in an ansatz for
