The M-theory expansion of the ABJ(M) partition function
  OKC/Nordita High-Energy Physics Theory seminar

Wednesday 18 June 2014
from 13:30 to 15:00
at FA31
Speaker : Johan Källén (University of Geneva)
Abstract : The ABJM theory is a three dimensional superconformal field theory with a M-theory dual. In this talk we will discuss the computation of the so called M-theory expansion of the partition function of the gauge theory. This is a large N expansion which is different from the usual 't Hooft expansion and which probes the M-theory regime of the gravity dual. Recent results for the generalization of these calculations to ABJ theory will also be discussed.
