The project has three interelated strands:          

                                                                         (1) Applications of the gauge/gravity correspondence to strongly couple matter.

                                                                         (2) The application of the gauge/gravity correspondence to gravitational systems.

                                                                                     (a) Classical and quantum properties of black holes;

                                                                                     (b) Early Universe cosmology and cosmological singularities.

                                                                         (3) Development of the structure of the gauge/gravity correspondence.

                                                                                     (a) The integrability of maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory and string theory;

                                                                                     (b) Developing the understanding of string theory beyond its pertubative approximation.

The research personnel include permanent faculty, who constitute the Team, and Departmental Collaborators; post doctoral researchers with expertise in different strands of the project and appointed for up to three years; PhD students of the permanent faculty; Short-term and long-term visitors.
