Matrix model for Polyakov loops, string field theory in the temporal gauge and winding string condensations in anti-de Sitter space

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Closed string field theory is constructed by stochastically quantizing a matrix model for Polyakov loops that describes phases of a large N gauge theory at finite temperature. Coherent states in this string field theory describes winding string condensation which has been expected to cause topology change from thermal AdS geometry to AdS-Schwarzschild black hole geometry. D-branes in this closed string field theory is also discussed. Based on a talk given at CosPA 2007, Taipei.
