TITLE Membranes in the bulk from monopole operators in ABJM theory: Large angular momentum in M-theoretic AdS4/CFT3
SPEAKER Dr. Hidehiko Shimada (島田英彦氏)
(Okayama Institute for Quantum Physics)
LANGUAGE: Up to audience
DATE: October 30 (Wed) 13:30 − 15:00
PLACE: Kenkyu-Honkan, 1F, Meeting Room 3


In the talk, I will consider states with large angular momentum to facilitate the study of the M-theory regime of the AdS4/CFT3 correspondence (duality between M-theory on AdS4 × S7/Zk and ABJM theory with gauge group U(N)× U(N) and level k, where k is finite and N is large). In particular I will discuss near-BPS operators in ABJM theory which correspond to states of membranes with large angular momenta on AdS. The talk will be based on my work with S. Kovacs(DIAS) and Y. Sato (Wits University).
