Title: Four point functions of higher weight operators in the AdS/CFT Correspondence.
Date: Thu, Apr 30, 2009, 15:30 - 17:00
Place: Seminar Room at IPMU Prefab. B
Abstract: In this talk I will first describe the computation of the four-point function of two weight-2 and two weight-n 1/2-BPS operators at large N and at strong 't Hooft coupling, using the supergravity approximation. The results are then discussed in the light of the AdS/CFT correspondence. For this matter, I will give a brief introduction covering the classical approach for computing these quantities in supergravity and then I will introduce new techniques that are more adequate for higher weight operators. New results will also be presented.
