A review of the AdS/CFT Quantum Spectral Curve

Journal Club Fedor Levkovich-Maslyuk (ENS Paris)

room online seminar

I will give an introduction to the Quantum Spectral Curve in AdS/CFT. This is an integrability-based framework which provides the exact spectrum of planar N = 4 super Yang-Mills theory (and of the dual string model) in terms of a solution of a Riemann-Hilbert problem for a finite set of functions. I review the underlying QQ-relations starting from simple spin chain examples, and describe the special features arising for AdS/CFT. I will also present some pedagogical examples to show the framework in action. Lastly I will briefly discuss its recent applications for correlation functions. Based on the review arXiv:1911.13065.
