AdS/CFT, holography, integrability
The AntideSitter/Conformal Field Theory (AdS/CFT) correspondence has been dominating research in theoretical highenergy physics for the last 15 years. It posits an exact quantum equivalence between string theory as a theory of quantum gravity on negatively curved spacetimes and certain conformal quantum field theories defined on the boundary of these spacetimes.
