Supersymmetric Wilson loops on S³
 PHYS. J. C22
, 2007
"... This paper studies in great detail a family of supersymmetric Wilson loop operators in N = 4 supersymmetric YangMills theory we have recently found. For a generic curve on an S³ in spacetime the loops preserve two supercharges but we will also study special cases which preserve 4, 8 and 16 superch ..."

Wilson Loops and Minimal Surfaces
, 1999
"... The AdS/CFT correspondence suggests that the Wilson loop of the large N gauge theory with N = 4 supersymmetry in 4 dimensions is described by a minimal surface in AdS5 × S 5. We examine various aspects of this proposal, comparing gauge theory expectations with computations of minimal surfaces. There ..."

Stringy Confining Wilson Loops
 NONPERTURBATIVE QUANTUM EFFECTS
, 2000
"... The extraction of Wilson loops of confining gauge systems from their SUGRA (string) duals is reviewed. I start with describing the basic classical setup. A theorem that determines the classical values of the loops associated with a generalized background is derived. In particular sufficient condit ..."

Wilson loops with arbitrary charges
"... We discuss how to implement, in lattice gauge theories, external charges which are not commensurate with an elementary gauge coupling. It is shown that an arbitrary, real power of a standard Wilson loop (or Polyakov line) can be defined and consistently computed in lattice formulation of nonabelia ..."

Wilson Loops as D3Branes
, 2006
"... We prove that the halfBPS Wilson loop operator of N = 4 SYM in a symmetric representation of the gauge group has a bulk gravitational description in terms of a single D3brane in AdS5×S5, as argued in hepth/0604007. We also show that a halfBPS Wilson loop operator in an arbitrary representation i ..."

1 String breaking with Wilson loops?
, 2002
"... A convincing, uncontroversial observation of string breaking, when the static potential is extracted from Wilson loops only, is still missing. This failure can be understood if the overlap of the Wilson loop with the broken string is exponentially small. In that case, the broken string ground state ..."

Bootstrapping Null Polygon Wilson Loops
"... We derive the two loop expressions for polygonal Wilson loops by starting from the one loop expressions and applying an operator product expansion. We do this for polygonal Wilson loops in R1,1 and find a result in agreement with previous computations. We also discuss the spectrum of excitations aro ..."
