Abstract:Localization provides powerful tests of holography that reach beyond the paradigmatic example of AdS/CFT correspondence.
The simplest non-conformal relative of AdS/CFT is the duality between the massive N=2* Yang-Mills theory and strings on the Pilch-Warner background.
I will describe how exact calculations on the field-theory side can be confronted with the string-theory predictions, including quantum effects on the string worldsheet.
