General Lin-Maldacena solutions and PWMM instantons from supergravity

Greg van Anders
2007 Journal of High Energy Physics  
We use the Lin-Maldacena prescription to demonstrate how to find the supergravity solutions dual to arbitrary vacua of the plane wave matrix model and maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory on RxS^2, by solving the auxiliary electrostatics problem. We then apply the technique to study instantons at strong coupling in the matrix model.
