Strong Coupling: from Lattice to AdS/CFT (Conference) - Jun, 03 2008
In recent years there has been a remarkable convergence of ideas in gauge theory, string theory and gravity which date back more than thirty years. The numerical study of QCD has matured into a reliable tool for studying the theory at its natural scale. At the same time, the ongoing RHIC experimental program at Brookhaven has been producing new results on the behavior of quarks and gluons at temperatures and densities above the critical line. Theoretical studies of strongly coupled gauge theories have also undergone dramatic development following the discovery of the duality between gauge theory and string theory. The purpose of this workshop is to further communication between the experimental, lattice QCD and string communities. There will be a three-day conference.
- Applications of the AdS/CFT correspondence to the strongly interacting quark-gluon plasma.
- The development of the AdS/CFT correspondence towards more realistic QCD-like theories.
- Approaches to the confinement mechanism and the role played by topological objects.
- Integrability in large N gauge theories.
We intend to run the workshop in a flexible manner, with plenty of time devoted to informal discussions and meetings in order to emphasize common open problems shared by the participants. This format is crucial if the interactions between the different communities are to thrive, allowing the multi-dimensional nature of the workshop to succeed. The number of talks will be limited to four a week. These will be given by workshop participants and will be 1 – 1.5 hours long. More informal discussion sessions will be organized at the initiative of the participants and organizers. We further propose to hold a one week conference around the start of the workshop (possibly the last week of March 2008). The purpose of the conference is to familiarize the participants with the main research topics in the different subfields relevant to the workshop. This is particularly important since the workshop is intended to include members from rather different communities, for whom mutual interaction is possibly a rare event. The conference will present an opportunity for members of the different communities to learn the language and techniques of the others. For this reason, we hope to include a number of introductory talks, reviewing the status of the the different fields — including RHIC experiments, lattice QCD and AdS/CFT — with emphasis on what has been achieved, what one can hope to achieve, and what issues require conceptual breakthroughs. There will, of course, also be more technical talks, covering the latest developments in the different fields.
