Cascading Gauge Theory

In theoretical physics, a cascading gauge theory is a gauge theory whose coupling rapidly changes with the scale in such a way that Seiberg duality must be applied many times. Klebanov and Strassler studied this kind of N=1 gauge theory in the context of the AdS-CFT correspondence, which is dual to the warped deformed conifold.

Famous quotes containing the words cascading and/or theory:

    Have We not made the earth as a cradle and the mountains as pegs? And We created you in pairs, and We appointed your sleep for a rest; and We appointed night for a garment, and We appointed day for a livelihood. And We have built above you seven strong ones, and We appointed a blazing lamp and have sent down out of the rain-clouds water cascading that We may bring forth thereby grain and plants, and gardens luxuriant.
    —Qur’An. “The Tiding,” 78:6-16, trans. by Arthur J. Arberry (1955)

    It is not enough for theory to describe and analyse, it must itself be an event in the universe it describes. In order to do this theory must partake of and become the acceleration of this logic. It must tear itself from all referents and take pride only in the future. Theory must operate on time at the cost of a deliberate distortion of present reality.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)
