### Research History

Matrix model, string theory, (Supersymmetric) gauge theory

### Research Plan at GCOE

Superstring theory is considered to be a consistent theory of
quantum gravity. Although a complete (non-perturbative) definition
of this theory is still lacking, such definition is expected to be
given as a continuum limit of a matrix model. In this research,
I try to gain a deeper understanding of this description of the string
theory by investigating the relation between strings and the matrix model.
Using the matrix model, I will also try to verify the gauge/gravity
duality which is conjectured to exist in the string theory.
