Kodaira-Spencer theory of gravity and exact results for quantum string amplitudes

- M. Bershadsky, S. Cecotti, H. Ooguri, C. Vafa
- Mathematics, Physics
- 27 September 1993

We develop techniques to compute higher loop string amplitudes for twistedN=2 theories withĉ=3 (i.e. the critical case). An important ingredient is the discovery of an anomaly at every genus in… Expand

Knot Invariants and Topological Strings

We find further evidence for the conjecture relating large N Chern-Simons theory on S^3 with topological string on the resolved conifold geometry by showing that the Wilson loop observable of a… Expand

Large N Field Theories, String Theory and Gravity

- O. Aharony, S. Gubser, J. Maldacena, H. Ooguri, Y. Oz
- Physics
- 14 May 1999

We review the holographic correspondence between field theories and string/M theory, focusing on the relation between compactifications of string/M theory on Anti-de Sitter spaces and conformal field… Expand

Wilson loops and minimal surfaces

- N. Drukker, D. Gross, H. Ooguri
- Physics
- 27 April 1999

The AdS-CFT correspondence suggests that the Wilson loop of the large N gauge theory with $\mathcal{N}=4$ supersymmetry in four dimensions is described by a minimal surface in… Expand

Black hole attractors and the topological string

- H. Ooguri, A. Strominger, C. Vafa
- Physics
- 17 May 2004

A simple relationship of the form ZBH = |Ztop|2 is conjectured, where ZBH is a supersymmetric partition function for a four-dimensional BPS black hole in a Calabi-Yau compactification of Type II… Expand

Notes on the K3 Surface and the Mathieu Group M 24

- T. Eguchi, H. Ooguri, Yuji Tachikawa
- Mathematics, Computer Science
- Exp. Math.
- 6 April 2010

We point out that the elliptic genus of the K3 surface has a natural decomposition in terms of dimensions of irreducible representations of the largest Mathieu group M 24. The reason remains a… Expand

Holomorphic anomalies in topological field theories

- M. Bershadsky, S. Cecotti, H. Ooguri, C. Vafa
- Physics
- 20 September 1993

We study the stringy genus-one partition function of N = 2 SCFTs. It is shown how to compute this using an anomaly in decoupling of BRST trivial states from the partition function. A particular limit… Expand

Holography and defect conformal field theories

- O. Dewolfe, D. Freedman, H. Ooguri
- Physics
- 14 November 2001

We develop both the gravity and field theory sides of the Karch-Randall conjecture that the near-horizon description of a certain D5-D3 brane configuration in string theory, realized as AdS_5 x S^5… Expand

On the Geometry of the String Landscape and the Swampland

We make a number of conjectures about the geometry of continuous moduli parameterizing the string landscape. In particular we conjecture that such moduli are always given by expectation value of… Expand

Two-dimensional black hole and singularities of CY manifolds

We study the degenerating limits of superconformal theories for compactifications on singular K3 and Calabi-Yau threefolds. We find that in both cases the degeneration involves creating an Euclidean… Expand
