Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: What is the AdS/CFT quantum spectral curve?
24 April 2015 13:00 in CM221
Recent developments of integrability techniques allowed us to
study the planar limit of a 4-dimensional gauge theory - N=4 SYM - at
any value of the coupling constant. Its spectrum is most efficiently
encoded in a concise set of Riemann-Hilbert equations - quantum spectral
curve (QSC). After reviewing the most recent advances in solution of the
QSC equations I will focus on explaining what are the basis concepts
used in formulation of QSC and how the QSC formalism fits into the
general framework of integrability.
