Gauge Theory Correlators from Non-Critical String Theory

- S. Gubser, I. Klebanov, A. Polyakov
- Physics
- 16 February 1998

Abstract We suggest a means of obtaining certain Green's functions in 3+1-dimensional N =4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory with a large number of colors via non-critical string theory. The… Expand

A semi-classical limit of the gauge/string correspondence

- S. Gubser, I. Klebanov, A. Polyakov
- Physics
- 4 April 2002

Abstract A world-sheet sigma model approach is applied to string theories dual to four-dimensional gauge theories, and semi-classical soliton solutions representing highly excited string states are… Expand

Large N Field Theories, String Theory and Gravity

- O. Aharony, S. Gubser, J. Maldacena, H. Ooguri, Y. Oz
- Physics
- 14 May 1999

We review the holographic correspondence between field theories and string/M theory, focusing on the relation between compactifications of string/M theory on Anti-de Sitter spaces and conformal field… Expand

Renormalization group flows from holography supersymmetry and a c theorem

- D. Freedman, S. Gubser, K. Pilch, N. Warner
- Physics
- 3 April 1999

We obtain first order equations that determine a supersymmetric kink solution in fivedimensional N = 8 gauged supergravity. The kink interpolates between an exterior anti-de Sitter region with… Expand

Breaking an Abelian gauge symmetry near a black hole horizon

- S. Gubser
- Physics
- 18 January 2008

I argue that coupling the Abelian Higgs model to gravity plus a negative cosmological constant leads to black holes which spontaneously break the gauge invariance via a charged scalar condensate… Expand

Drag force in AdS/CFT

- S. Gubser
- Physics
- 18 May 2006

The AdS/CFT correspondence and a classical test string approximation are used to calculate the drag force on an external quark moving in a thermal plasma of N=4 super-Yang-Mills theory. This… Expand

Modeling the fifth dimension with scalars and gravity

- O. Dewolfe, D. Freedman, S. Gubser, A. Karch
- Physics
- 20 September 1999

A method for obtaining solutions to the classical equations for scalars plus gravity in five dimensions is applied to some recent suggestions for brane-world phenomenology. The method involves only… Expand

The gravity dual of a p-wave superconductor

We construct black hole solutions to the Yang-Mills equations in an AdS4-Schwarzschild background which exhibit superconductivity. What makes these backgrounds p-wave superconductors is that the… Expand

Curvature Singularities: the Good, the Bad, and the Naked

- S. Gubser
- Physics
- 18 February 2000

Necessary conditions are proposed for the admissibility of singular classical solutions with 3+1-dimensional Poincare invariance to five-dimensional gravity coupled to scalars. Finite temperature… Expand

Coupling constant dependence in the thermodynamics of N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory

- S. Gubser, I. Klebanov, A. Tseytlin
- Physics
- 25 May 1998

The free energy of the maximally supersymmetric SU(N) gauge theory at temperature T is expected to scale, in the large-N limit, as N2T4 times a function of the 't Hooft coupling, f (gYM2N). In the… Expand
