Title: Test of the Anti-de Sitter-Space/Conformal-Field-Theory Correspondence Using High-Spin Operators

Abstract

In two remarkable recent papers the planar perturbative expansion was proposed for the universal function of the coupling appearing in the dimensions of high-spin operators of the N=4 super Yang-Mills theory. We study numerically the integral equation derived by Beisert, Eden, and Staudacher, which resums the perturbative series. In a confirmation of the anti-de Sitter-space/conformal-field-theory (AdS/CFT) correspondence, we find a smooth function whose two leading terms at strong coupling match the results obtained for the semiclassical folded string spinning in AdS{sub 5}. We also make a numerical prediction for the third term in the strong coupling series.
