Maldacena conjecture

    "Maldacena conjecture"

    Does somebody here believe that the Maldacena conjecture is true?
    Here's a lecture of 55 minutes in RealPlayer explaining the conjecture:

    Do you know a simple explanation of the maldacena conjecture?
  4. Oct 23, 2003 #3
    The technical statement that I've found is (literally):
    "There's an isomorphism between N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory in d=4 and "string theory on AdS5XS5""
    Roughly, it means that string theory living in a 5-dimensional anti-deSitter space can be described by a Yang-Mills theory living in the boundary of the anti-deSitter space
    The simplest description is to say that Maldacena conjecture is a version of the holographic principle
