The seminar is devoted to the solution of the AdS/CFT spectral problem, both for infinite and finite volume cases, using integrability. The basic constructions will be explained using an analogy with the relativistic O(4) sigma model. We devote a special attention to the study of the so called dressing factor. This is a scalar factor of the scattering matrix fixed using discrete crossing symmetry. We will show how to explicitly solve the equations dictated by the crossing symmetry, discuss essential properties of the dressing factor and give a shorthand and suggestive notation for the Bethe Ansatz of AdS/CFT. Then we will sketch a shorthand way to pass from the Bethe Ansatz to the Y-system.
