Quantum Gravity from oneloop SuperYangMills Theory Speaker(s): Samuel Vazquez
Abstract: It has been conjectured that maximally supersymmetric SU(N) YangMills theory is dual to a String Theory on asymptotically AdS_5 times S^5 backgrounds. This is known as the AdS/CFT correspondence. In this talk I will show how using oneloop calculations in the gauge theory, one can study the emergence of the dual String Theory. We will see, quite explicitly, the emergence of closed strings, Dbranes, open strings and spacetime itself. This is done in a reduced sector (SU(2) sector), where the gauge theory can be written as Matrix Quantum Mechanics. This simple sector provides a toy model of a nonperturbative quantum theory of gravity.
