Localization, matrix models, and AdS/CFT

KMI Special Lecture

Marcos Marino
KMI Science Symposia (ES635)

In these lectures I will given an introduction to recent
developments in the exact computation of partition functions of
superconformal field theories in three dimensions. First I will
discuss the method of supersymmetric localization which makes possible
to reduce these partition functions to matrix models. Then, I will
discuss methods for solving these models at large N to make contact
with different predictions of the AdS/CFT correspondence.
