### Quasilocality of splitting/joining strings from coherent states

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute

#### Abstract

Using the coherent state formalism we calculate matrix elements of the one-loop non-planar dilatation operator N=4 SYM between operators dual to folded Frolov-Tseytlin strings and observe a curious scaling behavior. We comment on the qualitative similarity of our matrix elements to the interaction vertex of a string field theory. In addition, we present a solvable toy model for string splitting and joining. The scaling behaviour of the matrix elements suggests that the contribution to the genus one energy shift coming from semi-classical string splitting and joining is small.
