Abstract

Restricted Schur polynomials constitute a basis for the 1/4-BPS sector of N = 4 super Yang-Mills theory with a U(N) gauge group. Using the AdS/CFT correspondence, these operators are interpreted as certain D-brane states in the dual gravity theory in the large N limit. It is interesting to study whether or not restricted Schurs constitute a basis for the 1/4-BPS sector of the theory with SO(N) gauge group. I present evidence that the counting of restricted Schurs matches the number of 1/4-BPS states for SO(N). I further discuss the possibility of the SO(N) restricted Schurs being orthogonal.
