Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: The AdS(5)xS(5) Superstring in Light-Cone Gauge and its Bethe equations

"The Green-Schwarz superstring in AdS(5)xS(5) is studied in uniform light-cone gauge, yielding an first order, gauge-fixed Lagrangian and light-cone Hamiltonian. We then quantize the theory perturbatively in the near plane-wave limit, and compute the leading 1/J correction to a generic string state from the rank-1 subsectors. These investigations enable us to propose a new set of light-cone Bethe equations for the quantum string. The equations have a simple form and yield the correct spinning string and flat space limits."
