Light-Cone String Field Theory in a Plane Wave Background

by Marcus Spradlin, Anastasia Volovich (hep-th/0310033, 46 pages, 4 figures)

Spradlin and Volovich review the plane-wave limit of AdS/CFT and describe how string field theory calculations of string interactions in 9+1 dimensional plane-wave spacetimes match interactions calculated using N=4 super Yang-Mills gauge theory in a 3+1 conformally flat spacetime. The paper includes an elementary introduction to light-cone string field theory.
