|TITLE||The giant graviton expansion|
|ABSTRACT||I will review a recently proposed conjectural relation of the superconformal index of 4d maximally supersymmetric U(N) gauge theory. The relation expresses the finite N index as a systematic series of corrections to a large N index. Individual corrections can be holographically interpreted as the contributions from giant gravitons after an analytic continuation.
