The flat-space limit of strings on AdS_5 x S^5

Donovan Young (NBI)

I will discuss a program to quantize the string on AdS_5 x S^5 in the flat-space limit, i.e. when the radius of curvature R is taken to infinity. The results of this program yield a prediction for the scaling dimension of the Konishi multiplet in N=4 SYM at strong coupling, and provide a potential route to resolving recent discrepant results from string theory concerning this quantity.
