Exact quantum fields and the structure of M-theory

Recent developments in the area of supersymmetric quantum field theory have led to the exact analytic computation of local and non-local observables of quantum field theories on curved backgrounds in diverse spacetime dimensions. The new techniques are allowing to check previous conjectures, to formulate new connections between theories in different dimensions and in general to extend our understanding of the principles and properties of quantum field theory as a physically and mathematically interesting framework. Moreover, these developments are now opening a novel window to the key ingredients of string/M-theory. At the center of this work, on-going investigations of the properties of M2 and M5 branes promise to shed new light into the mysteries of the non-perturbative structure of string theory.
