The anti-de Sitter/conformal field theory (AdS/CFT) correspondence is a conjectured equivalence between a quantum field theory in d spacetime dimensions with conformal scaling symmetry and a quantum theory of gravity in (d + 1)-dimensional anti-de Sitter space. The most promising approaches to quantizing gravity involve superstring theories, which are most easily defined in 10 spacetime dimensions, or M-theory which is defined in 11 spacetime dimensions.
