(05.07.) Quantum Gravity from Conformal Field Theory

I will describe how to recast perturbative quantum gravity using non- perturbative techniques from conformal field theory, focussing on the case of N=4 super Yang-Mills theory. By resolving the degeneracy among double trace operators at large N we are able to bootstrap one-loop supergravity corrections from the OPE of the CFT.
