Conformal fixed points of unidentified gauge theories

A. M. Polyakov

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this article we discuss gauge/string correspondence based on the non-critical strings With this goal we present several remarkable sigma models with the AdS target spaces. The models have kappa symmetry and are completely integrable. The radius of the AdS space is fixed and thus they describe isolated conformal fixed points of gauge theories in various dimensions. This work is dedicated to the memory of Ian Kogan.
