Abbreviation of location of studies: ELTE

Description of the research topic:

The AdS/CFT duality relates string theory on the d-dimensional anti-de Sitter space to conformal field theories on its boundaries. Since string theory on these backgrounds is integrable, bootstrap methods can be applied. The aim is to calculate physical observables exactly and interpret them both in string theory and in conformal field theory.

Required language skills: English
Further requirements: 
knowledge of quantum field theory or conformal field theory or integrable models

Number of students who can be accepted: 3
