Abstract

In this talk, I will describe some of the recent progress on computing holographic correlators using analytic bootstrap techniques combined with supersymmetric localization.  From taking a certain flat space limit of the holographic correlators, one can obtain scattering amplitudes of gravitons in string theory, and one can then reproduce some of the known results for these scattering amplitudes.  I will focus mostly on the case of the 4d {\cal N} = 4 super-Yang-Mills theory, but I will also mention related work in the 3d ABJM theory.
