Title: String Theory and Gauge Theories (Strings, Gravity, and the Large N Limit of Gauge Theories)

We will see how gauge theories, in the limit that the number of colors is large, give string theories. We will discuss some examples of particular gauge theories where the corresponding string theory more »is known precisely, starting with the case of the maximally supersymmetric theory in four dimensions which corresponds to ten dimensional string theory. We will discuss recent developments in this area.« less
