Nikolay Gromov joined King’s College as a Lecturer in Theoretical Physics in 2010, and was promoted to Reader in 2014.
Nikolay’s research interests include different approaches in non-perturbative Yang-Mills theory. The first approach is devoted to confinement/deconfinement phase transition and is based on classical configurations, generalizing the instantons. Another approach is based on the remarkable duality between the N = 4 super-symmetric generalization of 4D Yang-Mills theory and 10D string theory in the AdS5 x S5 background. Integrability allows one to write down the equations describing exactly the spectrum of these theories and easily reproduce very complicated perturbation theory calculations.
