    It's called the AdS/CFT correspondence. Look it up on Google. There is also a dS/CFT correspondence, but from what I've seen it isn't as popular.

    What is the difference between a holograph and a hologram?

    Traditionally, a holograph is a document written entirely in the handwriting of the person whose signature it bears.

    Catching up with the 20th century and from what I can see, holograph is a popular but incorrect application of the word holography. A hologram is made using holography.

    I'm curious about this because a co-worker once told me that all hologram technology is owned by Merv Griffin Enterprises. I just thought that was weird.

    I have no idea how that could make any sense... maybe if this involves some kind of media technology, or maybe one particular process... but not holograms in general.

    Do you mean something like... the holographic principle? http://wordiq.com/definition/Holographic_principle

    I'm also familiar with an issue of Scientific American with the cover saying something like... "Could the entire universe be a hologram?"

    I am thinking of media and display. The guy who told me this was really into 3-D animation. I think he was specifically referring to a device that would project an (animated) 3-D image.
