Large N Dual Gauge Theories
, 1999
"... A fivedimensional ChernSimons gravity theory based on the antide Sitter group SO(4,2) is argued to be a useful model in which to understand the details of holography and the relationship between generally covariant and dual local quantum field theories. Defined on a manifold with boundary, confor ..."

, conformal geometry arises naturally as a gauge invariance preserving boundary condition. By matching thermodynamic quantities for a particular background geometry, the dimensionless coupling constant of the ChernSimons theory is directly related to the number of fields in a putative dual theory at high
Effect of curvature squared corrections in AdS on the viscosity of the dual gauge theory
 JHEP
"... Abstract: We use the realtime finitetemperature AdS/CFT correspondence to compute the effect of general R 2 corrections to the gravitational action in AdS space on the shear viscosity of the dual gauge theory. The R 2 terms in AdS5 are determined by the central charges of the CFT. It seems that th ..."

"... We consider the type 0 theories, obtained from the closed NSR string by a diagonal GSO projection which excludes spacetime fermions, and introduce Dbranes into these theories. The lowenergy dynamics of N coincident Dbranes is governed by a U(N) gauge theory coupled to adjoint scalar fields. It i ..."

. It is tempting to look for the type 0 string duals of such bosonic gauge theories in the background of the RR charged pbrane classical solutions. This results in a picture analogous to the one recently proposed by Polyakov (hepth/9809057). One of the serious problems that needs to be resolved is the closed
Hierarchies from Fluxes in String Compactifications
, 2002
"... Warped compactifications with significant warping provide one of the few known mechanisms for naturally generating large hierarchies of physical scales. We demonstrate that this mechanism is realizable in string theory, and give examples involving orientifold compactifications of IIB string theory a ..."

ChernSimons Gauge Theory as a String Theory
, 2003
"... Certain two dimensional topological field theories can be interpreted as string theory backgrounds in which the usual decoupling of ghosts and matter does not hold. Like ordinary string models, these can sometimes be given spacetime interpretations. For instance, threedimensional ChernSimons gaug ..."

Simons gauge theory can arise as a string theory. The worldsheet model in this case involves a topological sigma model. Instanton contributions to the sigma model give rise to Wilson line insertions in the spacetime ChernSimons theory. A certain holomorphic analog of ChernSimons theory can also arise as a
Antide Sitter Space, Thermal Phase Transition, and Confinement in Gauge Theories
 Adv. Theor. Math. Phys
, 1998
"... The correspondence between supergravity (and string theory) on AdS space and boundary conformal field theory relates the thermodynamics of N = 4 super YangMills theory in four dimensions to the thermodynamics of Schwarzschild black holes in Antide Sitter space. In this description, quantum phenome ..."
