Gauge theories in the limit in which the number of colours N goes to infinity, are very interesting from the conceptual point of view. They are simpler but highly non-trivial and more easily connected to other theories (like string theory). Many of its properties are non-perturbative. The proposed methodology uses a strategy in which space-time is an emergent quantity. Some computations have already been done with this method, but little is known for the highly interesting theories with dynamical quarks (two-index representations or Veneziano limits).
