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

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

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

Observable Entanglement measures
Speaker(s): Florian Mintert
Abstract: Although entanglement constitutes one of the most remarkable differences between classical and quantum mechanics, and entanglement does have directly observable consequences, entanglement is not a regular observable like momentum or energy. It is rather a non-linear functional of a typically large s... read more
