Title: Large N elliptic genus and AdS/CFT Correspondence

Abstract

According to one of Maldacena's dualities, type IIB string theory on AdS{sub 3} x S{sup 3} x K3 is equivalent to a certain N = (4, 4) superconformal field theory. In this note we compute the elliptic genus of the boundary theory in the supergravity approximation. A finite quantity is obtained once we introduce a particular exclusion principle. In the regime where the supergravity approximation is reliable, we find exact agreement with the elliptic genus of a sigma model with target space K3{sup N}/S{sub N}.
