Description

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.
