Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)
We introduce and review some of the building blocks to what is known as the AdS/CFT correspondence. We then present, using the framework of the correspondence, two applications: one to QCD (Chapters 2 and 3) and one to superconductivity (Chapter 4). The work presented in these chapters was carried out by the author and collaborators during the author's graduate studies.
