  9. 9. Quantum chromodynamics is a quantum field theory which describes the strong interaction between the quarks and gluons which make up protons and neutrons. But, our standard method of calculating, perturbation theory, fails in this regime because the coupling constant between particles is strong and we are not able to expand around the non-interacting state. Therefore, we use the AdS/CFT correspondence to map the field theory to a spacetime with gravity in one higher dimension, a system for which we can do calculations.
  10. 10. Quarks and gluons are tiny particles which make up protons, and we can write down the math that describes how they behave. But, we do the calculations to find out how they behave using our normal approaches--it’s like trying to tighten a screw with a hammer. Therefore, we use a newly developed theoretical tool which rewrites the calculation as a problem that we know how to solve.
