11:30 AM - 12:30 PMRoom: Oskar Klein lecture hall There are integrable (solvable) spin systems related to quantum groups (quasi-triangular Hopf algebras), with simple structure of space of states. The integrals of motion belong to a quotient A of the braid group, which is a centralizer of the symmetry quantum group of the system. The space of states is a direct sum of of tensor products of corresponding irreducible representations of A and the quantum group. This decomposition is multiplicity free.12:30 PM lunchlunch12:30 PM - 2:30 PMRoom: -2:30 PM One-point functions for sine-Gordon model at finite temperature. - Fedor Smirnov (LPTHE, Paris)One-point functions for sine-Gordon model at finite temperature.- Fedor Smirnov (LPTHE, Paris)

2:30 PM - 3:30 PMRoom: Oskar Klein lecture hall We apply the hidden fermionic structure of integrable models for computing the one-point functions of the primary fields and their descendants for Eucildean sine-Gordon model on the cylinder (at finite temperature).

2:30 PM - 3:30 PMRoom: Oskar Klein lecture hall The exact anomalous dimensions of the single trace composite operators in the planar limit of $N=4$ super Yang-Mills can be studied in the framework of the Thermodynamic Bethe Ansatz method (TBA). In this talk, I will discuss the analytic properties of the TBA solutions -the Y-functions- and the associated set of functional relations -the Y-system-. Contrary to the more studied relativistic invariant cases, the $AdS_5/CFT_4$-related Y-functions live on multi-sheeted coverings of the complex plane with an infinite number of square-root branch points. As a direct consequence of this fact, the TBA equations and in particular the dressing kernel cannot be obtained from the Y-system without extra information on the square-root discontinuities across semi-infinite segments in the complex plane. It is shown that the discontinuity functions fulfill an independent simple set of local functional equations. The Y-system extended by the discontinuity relations forms a fundamental set of local non-linear constraints that can be easily transformed into integral form through Cauchy's theorem.3:30 PM On the Mirror TBA - Gleb Arutyunov (Universiteit Utrecht)On the Mirror TBA- Gleb Arutyunov (Universiteit Utrecht)

3:30 PM - 4:30 PMRoom: Oskar Klein lecture hall I will discuss some subtleties of the Thermodynamic Bethe Ansatz for the AdS_5 x S^5 mirror model concerning the construction of excited states and their analytic properties. I will then use the TBA equations to derive the five-loop anomalous dimension of the Konishi operator and argue that the corresponding result agrees with the one obtained via the generalized Luscher formulae.4:30 PM breakbreak4:30 PM - 5:00 PMRoom: Oskar Klein lecture hall5:00 PM The classical R-matrix of AdS/CFT - Benoit Vicedo (Saclay)The classical R-matrix of AdS/CFT- Benoit Vicedo (Saclay)

2:30 PM - 3:30 PMRoom: Oskar Klein lecture hall We consider polygonal Wilson loops with null edges in conformal gauge theories. We derive an OPE-like expansion when several successive lines of the polygon are becoming aligned. The limit corresponds to a collinear, or multicollinear, limit and we explain the systematics of all the subleading corrections, going beyond the leading terms that were previously considered. These subleading corrections are governed by excitations of high spin operators, or excitations of a flux tube that goes between two Wilson lines. The discussion is valid for any conformal gauge theory, for any coupling and in any dimension. For N=4 super Yang Mills we check this expansion at strong coupling and at two loops at weak coupling . We also make predictions for the remainder function at higher loops. We will also discuss aspects of the excitations around the relevant flux tube or "sea of derivatives''3:30 PM A & B model approaches to surface operators and Toda theories - Niclas WyllardA & B model approaches to surface operators and Toda theories- Niclas Wyllard

- Henrik Johansson (Saclay)

10:00 AM - 11:00 AMRoom: Oskar Klein lecture hall In recent years it has become clear that gauge theory and gravity amplitudes exhibit remarkable simplicity and beautiful structures. Here I will discuss one such structure: a duality between color and kinematics in gauge theory amplitudes. The duality implies nontrivial relations between color-ordered partial tree amplitudes. Remarkably the duality dictates the construction of gravity amplitudes as a double copy of gauge theory kinematic factors, clarifying the Kawai-Lewellen-Tye relations of open and closed strings. Originally considered as a classical (tree-level) duality, here I will present evidence that the duality is valid at the quantum level as well.11:00 AM breakbreak11:00 AM - 11:30 AMRoom: Oskar Klein lecture hall11:30 AM Scattering amplitudes on the Coulomb branch of N=4 super Yang-Mills - Johannes Henn (Humboldt Universität zu Berlin)Scattering amplitudes on the Coulomb branch of N=4 super Yang-Mills- Johannes Henn (Humboldt Universität zu Berlin)

3:30 PM - 4:30 PMRoom: Oskar Klein lecture hall We compute N=4 Super Yang Mills planar amplitudes at strong coupling by considering minimal surfaces in AdS_5 space. The surfaces end on a null polygonal contour at the boundary of AdS. We show how to compute the area of the surfaces as a function of the conformal cross ratios characterizing the polygon at the boundary. These equations have the form of Thermodynamic Bethe Ansatz equations. The area is the free energy of the TBA system. We consider any number of gluons and in any kinematic configuration.4:30 PM breakbreak4:30 PM - 5:00 PMRoom: Oskar Klein lecture hall5:00 PM Superconformal invariance of scattering amplitudes in N=4 super-Yang-Mills theory - Emery Sokatchev (LAPTH, Annecy)Superconformal invariance of scattering amplitudes in N=4 super-Yang-Mills theory- Emery Sokatchev (LAPTH, Annecy)

5:00 PM - 6:00 PMRoom: Oskar Klein lecture hall We discuss the realization of dual and conventional superconformal symmetries on the scattering amplitudes in N=4 SYM. While these symmetries are exact at tree level, they have to be complemented with analytic properties to fully fix the tree. At loop level both symmetries are broken by different mechanisms. We describe the formulation of amplitudes in twistor space and in terms of Grassmannian invariants.6:00 PM dinnerdinner6:00 PM - 11:00 PMRoom: - -

9:30 AM - 10:30 AMRoom: Oskar Klein lecture hall I will review the computation of the anomalous dimension for twist-2 operators at five loop order at weak coupling. This result provides us with data for testing the veracity of the spectral equations for planar AdS/CFT.10:30 AM Weak coupling tests of the mirror TBA - Arpad Hegedus (KFKI, Budapest)Weak coupling tests of the mirror TBA- Arpad Hegedus (KFKI, Budapest)

10:30 AM - 11:30 AMRoom: Oskar Klein lecture hall The mirror Thermodynamic Bethe Ansatz (TBA) approach offers a tool to investigate the spectrum of AdS/CFT in the planar limit. The TBA equations governing the spectrum are based on several conjectures this is why it is important to test them carefully. In this talk we will focus on the analytical tests of the AdS/CFT TBA system in the weak coupling limit and show that the 5-loop anomalous dimensions of the twist-2 operators of the sl(2) sector derived from the TBA equations agree with the results obtained previously from the generalized Luscher formulae.11:30 AM breakbreak11:30 AM - 12:00 PMRoom: Oskar Klein lecture hall12:00 PM Correlation functions of operators dual to classical string states - Romuald Janik (Uniwersytet Jagielloński, Kraków)Correlation functions of operators dual to classical string states- Romuald Janik (Uniwersytet Jagielloński, Kraków)
