Description

String sigma-models relevant in the AdS/CFT correspondence are highly non-trivial two-dimensional field theories, for which predictions at finite coupling assume integrability and/or the correspondence itself. After having discussed general features of the perturbative approach, I will present progress on how to extract finite coupling information via the use of lattice field theory methods.
