Description

String Theory and Holographic Duality (Fall 2014, MIT OCW).

Instructor: Professor Hong Liu. This string theory course focuses on holographic duality (also known as gauge/gravity duality or AdS/CFT) as a novel method of approaching and connecting a range of diverse subjects, including quantum gravity/black holes, QCD at extreme conditions, exotic condensed matter systems, and quantum information.
