and WilsonLoop
, 2000
"... The renormalization group equations of the YangMills theory are examined in the noncritical string theory according to the framework of the holography. Under a simple ansatz for the tachyon, we could find several interesting solutions which are classified by the value of the tachyon potential at t ..."

at the vacuum. We show two typical, asymptoticfree solutions which are different in their infrared behaviors. For both types of solutions, we could obtain quarkconfinement potential from the Wilsonloop. The stability of the tachyon and the ZigZag symmetry are also discussed for these solutions. 1
Supersymmetric Wilson loops
"... I construct 1/16, 1/8 and 1/4 BPS Wilson loops in N = 4 supersymmetric YangMills theory and argue that expectation values of 1/4 BPS loops do not receive quantum corrections. At strong coupling, nonrenormalization of supersymmetric Wilson loops implies subtle cancellations in the partition functio ..."

Special contact Wilson loops
, 2002
"... Wilson loops in N = 4 supersymmetric YangMills theory correspond at strong coupling to extremal surfaces in AdS5. We study a class of extremal surfaces known as special Legendrian submanifolds. The ”hemisphere ” corresponding to the circular Wilson loop is an example of a special Legendrian submani ..."

RADIAL PROPAGATORS AND WILSON LOOPS
, 1996
"... We present a relation which connects the propagator in the radial (FockSchwinger) gauge with a gauge invariant Wilson loop. It is closely related to the wellknown field strength formula and can be used to calculate the radial gauge propagator. The result is shown to diverge in fourdimensional spa ..."

ABJM Wilson loops in the Fermi . . .
, 2013
"... The matrix model of ABJM theory can be formulated in terms of an ideal Fermi gas with a nontrivial oneparticle Hamiltonian. We show that, in this formalism, vevs of Wilson loops correspond to averages of operators in the statisticalmechanical problem. This makes it possible to calculate these v ..."

Holographic Wilson loops
, 2006
"... We show that all halfBPS Wilson loop operators in N = 4 SYM – which are labeled by Young tableaus – have a gravitational dual description in terms of D5branes or alternatively in terms of D3branes in AdS5×S5. We prove that the insertion of a halfBPS Wilson loop operator in the N = 4 SYM path int ..."

Wilson loop on a sphere
, 1993
"... We give the formula for a simple Wilson loop on a sphere which is valid for an arbitrary QCD2 saddlepoint ρ(x): W(A1, A2) = ∮ dx 2πi exp( ∫ dy ρ(y) + A2x). y−x QCD2 has recently drawn much attention because of the new insights brought about by the GrossTaylor reinterpretation of its partition fu ..."

String representation of Wilson loops
"... We explore the consequences of imposing Polyakov’s zig/zaginvariance in the search for a confining string. We first find that the requirement of zig/zaginvariance seems to be incompatible with spacetime supersymmetry. We then try to find zig/zaginvariant string backgrounds on which to implement th ..."

We consider the 3d ZZ2 lattice gauge theory, and we define ratios of Wilson loops such that the predictions of the effective string theory do not contain any adjustable param ..."
