Description Unity from duality: gravity, gauge theory and strings EPUB

The book is a comprehensive introduction to the recent developments in string/M-theory Price: $ 8 Unity from Duality: Gravity, Gauge Theory and Strings This shows that the right-hand side of () is proportional to a projection operator, which projects out half of the spinor space.

Consequently, half the spinors must vanish on physical states, whereas the other ones generate a Clifford algebra. Further chapters deal with quantum gravity and D-brane geometry. Black hole mechanics and cosmology are treated too, as well as the AdS-CFT correspondence.

The book is a comprehensive introduction to the recent developments in string/M-theory and quantum gravity. It addresses graduate students in physics and astrophysics.

Gauge/gravity duality creates new links between quantum theory and gravity. It has led to new concepts in mathematics and physics, and provides new tools to solve problems in many areas of theoretical physics.

This book is the first textbook on this important topic, enabling graduate students and researchers in string theory Cited by:   Many of the topics in this book are outgrowths of the spectacular new understanding of duality in string theory which emerged around They include the AdS/CFT correspondence and its relation to holography, the matrix theory formulation of M theory, the structure of black holes in string theory, the structure of D-branes and M-branes, and.

This is not yet a duality; we have a single theory, the IIB string theory, describing both limits, but in di erent approximations: perturbation theory around at spacetime with branes at small gN, and perturbation theory around the curved black brane spacetime (with no branes and no open strings File Size: KB.

The idea of duality demonstrates that gauge. You want gauge theory plus a Dirac fermion. Dirac theory. A Dirac theory. And similarly, if you include the weak interaction--so there's something called [INAUDIBLE] weak--it's described by su2 times u1 gauge theory.

Described by su2 times u1 gauge theory. And also, the strong interaction you know now is described by su3 gauge theory. So for.

The. The anti-de Sitter/conformal field theory correspondence, sometimes called Maldacena duality or gauge/gravity duality, is a conjectured relationship between two kinds of physical one side are anti-de Sitter spaces (AdS) which are used in theories of quantum gravity, formulated in terms of string theory or the other side of the correspondence are conformal field theories.

of a black hole in the gauge theory. They also calculate this entropy with a gravity theory that includes the first quantum grav-ity correction. The agreement between the two computations is evidence for the valid-ity of the gauge/gravity duality, as well as for the internal consistency of string theory as a quantum theory of by: 2.

Seminar 7 On a Field Theory of Open Strings, Tachyon Condensation and Closed Strings. For example, type IIA string theory is equivalent to type IIB string theory via T-duality, and the two versions of heterotic string theory are also related by T-duality. In general, the term duality refers to a situation where two seemingly different physical systems turn out to be equivalent in a nontrivial way.

And the second thing is, we will also quickly go over the large N gauge theory--the properties of the large N gauge theories.

So this give hints--something called a gauge string duality. So the behavior of the large N gauge theory give you a strong hint that actually there's a string theory description for ordinary gauge .Gravity isn't Yang-Mills theory in the narrow sense – well, except for equivalences such as AdS/CFT or Matrix theory that imply that a quantum gravitational theory is fully equivalent to a gauge theory living in a different space (e.g.

in AdS/CFT, on the boundary of the AdS space).In both cases, and similarly to the more physical AdS/CFT correspondence, the duality can be discovered by realizing the gauge theory as the target space theory of open strings ending on particular D-branes in a geometry closely related to the closed string background of the gravity theory.
