Title: Exact results in the N=2* holography

Abstract: I will talk about interplay between localization and holography for N=2* super-Yang-Mills theory. Exact results from localization predict an infinite number of phase transitions in this model accumulating at strong coupling, which in the string theory should become visible starting with two loops. Perfect agreement with localization at tree and one loop level hint at the string origin of the critical behavior, even if the details have not been worked out yet.
