From Gauss graphs to giants

By Robert de Mello Koch and Lwazi Nkumane


Abstract We identify the operators in N = 4 super Yang-Mills theory that correspond to 18 $$ \frac{1}{8} $$ -BPS giant gravitons in AdS5 × S 5. Our evidence for the identification comes from (1) counting these operators and showing agreement with independent counts of the number of giant graviton states, and (2) by demonstrating a correspondence between correlation functions of the super Yang-Mills operators and overlaps of the giant graviton wave functions
