    $\begingroup$ Hi Wave Metric & @Countto10 : Note that resource recom., which are restricted on Phys.SE. can usually not be mixed with an actual physics q., so I removed that subquestion. $\endgroup$ – Qmechanic Aug 28 '17 at 18:18
  • $\begingroup$ It puts the mathematical meat on the bones of the ideas of holography. People came to holography from ideas about black holes. Another collection of people were looking at cool things in gauge theories. Maldacena brought the meat. ocw.mit.edu/courses/physics/… mentions this in some detail. It's free watch it. $\endgroup$ – user151266 Sep 4 '17 at 5:52
