High energy scattering in AdS dual to QCD

Presenter: Richard C. Brower — Boston University

Richard C. Brower

The high energy limit for scattering in the AdS5 gravity dual of Yang Mills theory will be presented both in terms of the eikonal summation of Witten diagrams and 'tHooft's shock wave analysis. Comparisons with gravity and strings in flat space will be made and the role of the SL(2,C) isometry of the transverse AdS3 impact geometry explained. The first strong coupling corrections for QCD-like confining duals give a unitarization of the BFKL Pomeron of Brower, Polchinski, Strassler and Tan, which saturates the Froissart bound.
