Perturbative study of the transfer matrix on the string worldsheet in AdS$_5$xS$^5$
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
Quantum non-local charges are central to the quantum integrability of a sigma-model. In this paper we study the quantum consistency and UV finiteness of non-local charges of string theory in AdS(5)xS(5). We use the pure spinor formalism. We determine the near-flat space expansion of the transfer matrix and calculate the one-loop divergences. We find that the logarithmic divergences cancel. This gives strong support to the quantum integrability of the full string theory. We develop a calculational setup for the renormalization group analysis of Wilson line type of operators on the worldsheet.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
