Workshop on higher-point correlation functions and integrable AdS/CFT

Trinity College

Trinity College Dublin, April 16th-20th 2018

The use of integrability in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence has been one of the most successful approaches to understanding non-perturbative gauge theories. The exact computation of the spectrum of closed strings on AdS spaces or, equivalently in the dual gauge theory, of the spectrum of planar anomalous dimensions has without doubt proven the value of this direction. Recent years have seen a number of interesting extensions of these methods to the computation of a wider range of observables such as three- and higher-point correlation functions and to novel theories such as those occuring in the AdS3/CFT2 duality.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers to present their recent results and to facilitate interactions among different approaches through a mixture of structured talks and informal discussions. This workshop is a follow-up to the 2015 "Integrable Approaches to 3pt functions in AdS5/CFT4” workshop in Budapest and the "Workshop on 3-point functions in Gauge/String theories" at IFT-UNESP, São Paulo in 2016.
