Yang-Mills and D instantons

By A.V. Belitsky, S. Vandoren and P. van Nieuwenhuizen


In these lectures, which are written at an elementary and pedagogical level, we\ud discuss general aspects of (single) instantons in SU(N) Yang-Mills theory, and then\ud specialize to the case of N = 4 supersymmetry and the large N limit. We show how\ud to determine the measure of collective coordinates and compute instanton corrections\ud to certain correlation functions. We then relate this to D-instantons in type IIB supergravity.\ud By taking the D-instantons to live in an AdS5 × S5 background, we perform\ud explicit checks of the AdS/CFT correspondence
