PIRSA:06120024  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Twistor-Inspired Approach to QCD and Supergravity
Speaker(s): Harald Ita
Abstract: We will discuss applications of the recently developed twistor-space methods in perturbative quantum field-theory. The two central topics will be 1) the unitarity bootstrap approach to hard scattering amplitudes in QCD and 2) the analysis of the UV structure of N=8 supergravity.

The Arrow of Time, Black Holes, and Quantum Mixing of Large N Yang-Mills Theories
Speaker(s): Guido Festuccia
Abstract: Quantum gravity in an AdS space-time is described by an SU(N) Yang-Mills theory on a sphere, a bounded many-body system. We argue that in the high temperature phase the theory is intrinsically non-perturbative in the large N limit. At any nonzero value of the \'t Hooft coupling $lambda$, an exponent... read more

Similarities Between Maximally Supersymmetric Gauge and Gravity Theories
Speaker(s): Kasper Larsen
Abstract: Due to recent, as well as less recent, work on perturbative N=8 supergravity and N=4 super Yang-Mills in 4d, the two theories are appearing more and more closely related. These relations include similar "MHV-rule" constructions, one-loop structure and, perhaps, the same UV behavior, namely UV finite... read more

PIRSA:06120028  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
OPE of Giant Wilson loops from D-branes and Matrix Models
Speaker(s): Simone Giombi
Abstract: In the context of AdS/CFT, it has been recently proposed that Wilson loops in higher representation of the gauge group have a dual description in terms of D-branes in AdS_5xS^5. After reviewing this new dictionary, I will present a computation of correlators between chiral primaries of N=4 SYM and W... read more

PIRSA:06120029  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Quantum Gravity from one-loop Super-Yang-Mills Theory
Speaker(s): Samuel Vazquez
Abstract: It has been conjectured that maximally supersymmetric SU(N) Yang-Mills 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 one-loop calculations in the gauge theory, one can study the emerge... read more

PIRSA:06120033  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Aethereal Gravity
Speaker(s): Brendan Foster
Abstract: Hints from quantum gravity suggest that a preferred frame may actually exist. One way to accommodate such a frame in general relativity without sacrificing diffeomorphism invariance is to couple the metric to a dynamical, time like, unit-norm vector field--the "aether". I will discuss properties an... read more
