The AdS/CFT correspondence and spectrum generating algebras

Academic Article


  • We list the spectrum generating algebras for string theory and M-theory compactified on various backgrounds of the form $AdS_{d+1} \times S^n$. We identify the representations of these algebras which make up the classical supergravity spectra and argue for the presence of these spectrum generating algebras in the classical string/M-theory. We also discuss the role of the spectrum generating algebras on the conformal field theory side.
