But, I don’t have any concrete ideas of how you’d get a higher-dimensional field theory and discretize space to be one of these delightful higher-dimensional polytopes.

]]>It was all the rage when I was about to graduate from Berkeley. All the stringers were talking about it. It provided a further evidence and elaboration of the holographic correspondence.

It would be interesting to compute quantities in the gauge theory from a nonperturbative, numerical approach, which is why a few of us in the lattice community are interested in it. Of course, we’re also looking for excuses to work with curved spaces.
