Integrability in gauge theory and string theory I

Regular Seminar Nick Dorey (Cambridge/Imperial Maths Institute)

13:00 IC
room Maths Institute seminar room

This the first of a series of lectures in which I will introduce the concept of integrability and study its realisation in the context of gauge theory and string theory. In particular, I plan to review recent progress in computing the spectrum of operator dimensions in N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory and the dual problem of determining the spectrum of string theory on AdS5 x S5.
