“Solving” a four-dimensional gauge theory is a hard problem, which the AdS/CFT duality suggests to trade with “solving” a two-dimensional theory for the string worldsheet.
I will discuss how, in this process, the cross-fertilization of established gauge-theretical tools to strings (in particular lattice field theory methods) turns out to be relevant to enhance our knowledge of the string model, and thus the predictivity of the duality.
