Exact Results in Gauge/Gravity Dualities Workshop

Conference Date: 
Monday, August 8, 2011 (All day) to Friday, August 12, 2011 (All day)
Scientific Areas: 
Quantum Fields and Strings


New developments in scattering amplitudes in N=4 super Yang-Mills, such the discovery of a Yangian symmetry algebra, and new methods that use integrability at all couplings in Wilson loop computations make it clear that we are on the verge of a major conjunction of fields and techniques. Once a connection is made, many breakthroughs coming from cross fertilization are expected. This is why informal workshops that bring together experts from each field is a proven method to foster progress in connecting them.


This part of the program aims at bringing together leading physicists working on scattering amplitudes and integrability in gauge/gravity dualities. The workshop will allow for plenty of time for discussions. In order to maximize cross-fertilization, the workshop is intended to be pedagogical.
