Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Spherical Branes, Supersymmetric Localization, and Holography

Presented by Nikolay Bobev, KU Leuven

14 February 2020 13:00 in CM101

I will describe a class of supergravity solutions holographically dual to d-dimensional maximally supersymmetric SYM on S^d. Supersymmetric localization can be employed to calculate the partition function and the VEV of a 1/2-BPS Wilson lines in the planar limit of the SYM theory. I will present the results of this calculation and will show how they lead to a non-trivial precision test of holography in the context of non-conformal QFTs and space-times that are non asymptotically locally AdS.
