Three-point functions in AdS/CFT and functional light-cone methods

Regular Seminar Tristan McLoughlin (AEI)

13:15 KCL
room 423

In this talk we will briefly review the recent progress in the semiclassical string theory calculation of non-BPS gauge theory three-point correlation functions at strong coupling. We will then discuss the light-cone path integral approach to such three-point functions with a focus on near-BMN operators where one can systematically go beyond the semiclassical approximation.
