Integrability and Beyond
Our research lies within the framework of the AdS/CFT correspondence linking gauge theories and string theories. Our projects relate to integrable models, spin chains, defect conformal field theories, quantum quenches and graphene.
The group is funded by DFF-FNU through a Sapere Aude Advanced grant for the period 2015-2020.
A total of 3 postdocs, 3 PhD students and numerous short and long term visitors have been supported by the grant.
Our research lies within the framework of the AdS/CFT correspondence linking gauge theories and string theories. Currently, the main direction of investigation is defect conformal field theories based on maximally supersymmetric Yang Mills theory and the dual probe brane models. In particular we are interested in clarifying the role of integrability in AdS/dCFT set-ups and to make contact with the boundary conformal bootstrap program. Our investigations have strong links with the study of spin chains and quantum quenches in statistical and condensed matter physics. We also apply probe brane set-ups to model the strong coupling properties of graphene.
