Recently, various ideas have resulted in enormous advances in the understanding of strongly coupled field theories and in particular of conformal field theories. From string theory, the AdS/CFT correspondence has allowed field theory computation previously impossible to perform including exact large-N results for 4 dimensional N=4 super Yang-Mills theory. From field theory, the conformal …
