We review the holographic correspondence between field theories and string/M theory, focusing on the relation between compactifications of string/M theory on Antide Sitter spaces and conformal field theories. We review the background for this correspondence and discuss its motivations and the evidence for its correctness. We describe the main results that have been derived from the correspondence in the regime that the field theory is approximated by classical or semiclassical gravity. We focus on the case of the N = 4 supersymmetric gauge theory in four dimensions, but we discuss also field theories in other dimensions, conformal and nonconformal, with or without supersymmetry, and in particular the relation to QCD. We also discuss some implications for black hole physics.

We show that all the momentum integrals appearing in the perturbative onshell calculations up to four loops are dual to true conformal integrals, well defined off shell. Assuming th ..."

We present further evidence for a dual conformal symmetry in the fourgluon planar scattering amplitude in N = 4 SYM. We show that all the momentum integrals appearing in the perturbative onshell calculations up to four loops are dual to true conformal integrals, well defined off shell. Assuming that the complete offshell amplitude has this dual conformal symmetry and using the basic properties of factorization of infrared divergences, we derive the special form of the finite remainder previously found at weak coupling and recently reproduced at strong coupling by AdS/CFT. We show that the same finite term appears in a weak coupling calculation of a Wilson loop whose contour consists of four lightlike segments associated with the gluon momenta. We also demonstrate that, due to the special form of the finite remainder, the asymptotic Regge limit of the fourgluon amplitude coincides with the exact expression evaluated for arbitrary values of the Mandelstam variables.

In the mapping from fourdimensional gauge theories to string theory in AdS space, many features of gauge theory can be described by branes wrapped in different ways on S 5, RP 5, or subspaces therefore. These include a baryon vertex coupling N external charges in the fundamental representation of SU(N), a bound state of k gluons in SO(2k) gauge theory, strings coupled to external charges in the spinor representation of the gauge group, and domain walls across which the low energy gauge group changes.

Abstract: This paper is a continuation of ArXiv:0707.1324 where improved holographic theories for QCD were set up and explored. Here, the IR confining geometries are classified and analyzed. They all end in a “good ” (repulsive) singularity in the IR. The glueball spectra are gaped and discrete, and they favorably compare to the lattice data. Quite generally, confinement and discrete spectra imply each other. Asymptotically linear glueball masses can also be achieved. Asymptotic mass ratios of various glueballs with different spin also turn out to be universal. Mesons dynamics is implemented via space filling D4 − ¯ D4 brane pairs. The associated tachyon dynamics is analyzed and chiral symmetry breaking is shown. The dynamics of the RR axion is analyzed, and the nonperturbative running of the QCD θangle is obtained. It is shown to always vanish in the IR.

We use a D5brane with electric flux in AdS5 × S5 background to calculate the circular Wilson loop of antisymmetric representation in N = 4 super YangMills theory in 4 dimensions. The result agrees with the Gaussian matrix model calculation. 1 Introduction and summary The expectation values of Wilson loops are some of the most important kind of observables in a gauge theory. In particular, Wilson loops are interesting operators in AdS/CFT correspondence since they are calculable in AdS side using strings [1, 2]. In this paper, we are interested in the Wilson loop operators of the following kind in

We derive WKB expressions for glueball masses of various finite temperature supergravity models. The results are very close to recent numerical computations. We argue that the spectra has some universality that depends only on the dimension of the AdS space and the singularity structure of the horizon. This explains the stability of the 0 ++ glueball mass ratios between various models. We also consider the recently proposed nonsupersymmetric model arising from the type 0 string. In the supergravity limit of this model, the heavy quark potential has an effective coupling with 1/(log u) behavior in the UV. Unfortunately, the supergravity solution implies that the heavy quark potential is still coulombic in the infrared, with an effective coupling of order 1. We also argue that the type 0 supergravity background solution does not have normalizable glueball solutions. November
