Quarks, Strings, Branes, and Gravity

Nick Evans, Southampton Univ., has written an article in Nature 439, 921-923 (23 February 2006) titled Quarks on a gravitational string. Short and readable for non-specialists, one figure, gives references to technical papers.

Gary Horowitz and Joseph Polchinski have written a contribution to "Towards Quantum Gravity" titled Gauge/Gravity Duality. Excellent coverage of this central topic. References given to the classical papers.

Joshua Erlich, Graham D. Kribs, and Ian Low wrote a paper Emerging Holography. The authors rederive the AdS/CFT predictions by a four dimensional approach.
