Workshop

Large-N Gauge Theories

Apr 04, 2011 - Jun 17, 2011



Abstract
The program focuses on diverse aspects of large-N gauge theories. The topics will range from AdS/CFT duality, large N phenomenology to lattice simulations. By bringing together researchers interested in various approaches to large-N physics we aim to provide a fertile environment where lattice and gauge theory experts can interact with string and AdS/CFT experts. There will be a conference in the middle of the program.

Topics
-- AdS/CFT duality.
-- Wilson loops and large-N gauge theory amplitudes.
-- Matrix models, phase transitions and large-N behavior.
-- Gravity/string theory approaches to QCD and flavor physics.
-- Finite temperature and plasma physics via duality. Phenomenology of the quark-gluon plasma.
-- Large-N phenomenology.
-- New large-N expansions. Planar equivalence.
-- Lattice simulations of large-N theories.

The workshop conference will be held at May 2-May 6
