# How would one experimentally prove AdS/CFT correspondence?

What would be an experimental test of AdS/CFT correspondence? Or it's extensions?

I've heard that people are studying AdS/CMT (condensed matter) correspondence, but I don't know the details of it?

But in general, how would you test it?

• Yeah, but that's only for string theory. AdS/CFT doesn't necessary need string theory in some cases (Kerr/CFT and AdS${}_3$/CFT${}_2$ where you work within the framework of asymptotic symmetries). – dingo_d Feb 16 '14 at 23:45
