Supercurrents in Matrix theory and the generalized AdS/CFT correspondence. (English) Zbl 1097.81728

Summary: We investigate Matrix theory in the large-\(N\) limit following the conjectured correspondence between Matrix theory and supergravity on the near-horizon limit of the D0-brane background. We analyze the complete fermionic spectrum of supergravity and obtain two-point functions of the supercurrents in Matrix theory. By examining the large-\(N\) scaling properties of the correlators, we analyze the behavior of the supercurrents under the boost in the 11th direction and discuss the consistency of the 11-dimensional interpretation of the supersymmetry of Matrix theory.
