Building on a previous conjecture, we argue that the holographic dual of the light-front vacuum state of a superconformal field theory quantized in the front form of dynamics contains the Kaigorodov spacetime, which is nothing but a pp-wave propagating in AdS. Evidence in favor of this conjecture is presented. In particular we verify the matching o...

We use supersymmetric localization to study probes of four dimensional
Lagrangian N=2 superconformal field theories. We first derive a unique equation
for the eigenvalue density of these theories. We observe that these theories
have a Wigner eigenvalue density precisely when they satisfy a necessary
condition for having a holographic dual with a se...

We compute the exact vacuum expectation value of circular Wilson loops for Euclidean \( \mathcal{N} \) = 4 super Yang-Mills with G = SO(N),Sp(N), in the fundamental and spinor representations. These field theories are dual to type IIB string theory compactified on AdS
5 × \( \mathbb{R}{\mathrm{\mathbb{P}}}^5 \) plus certain choices of discrete tors...

In this work we consider a heavy quark moving with constant proper
acceleration in the vacuum of any four dimensional conformal field theory. We
argue that the two-point function of its momentum fluctuations is exactly
captured by the Bremsstrahlung function that gives the total radiated power.
For the particular case of N=4 SU(N) SYM this function...

In this work (which supersedes our previous preprint arXiv:1112.2345) we
determine the expectation value of the N=4$ SU(N) SYM Lagrangian density
operator in the presence of an infinitely heavy static particle in the
symmetric representation of SU(N), by means of a D3-brane probe computation.
The result that we obtain coincides with two previous co...

We determine the expectation value of the gauge invariant operator Tr
[F^2+... ] for N=4 SU(N) SYM, in the presence of an infinitely heavy static
particle in the symmetric representation of SU(N). We carry out the computation
in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence, by considering the perturbation
of the dilaton field caused by the presence of...

We use the AdS/CFT correspondence to compute the energy radiated by an infinitely massive half-Bogomol'nyi-Prasad-Sommerfeld particle charged under N=4 super Yang-Mills theory, transforming in the symmetric or antisymmetric representation of the gauge group, and moving in the vacuum, to all orders in 1/N and for large 't Hooft coupling. For the ant...
