Wrapping interactions in gauge theory and finite size effects in string theory

Triangular Seminar Romuald Janik (Jagellonian University)

17:30 IC
room Lecture Theatre 1

Anomalous dimensions of long operators in SYM are described by the asymptotic Bethe ansatz. There exist, in addition, finite size effects due to wrapping interactions. In this talk I would like to argue that within the AdS/CFT correspondence these additional wrapping interactions are described by finite size corrections in the relevant integrable quantum field theory and analyze the finite size corrections to the giant magnon.
