Title: Quantum gravity from conformal bootstrap

Abstract: In this talk I will present how to use analytic methods of the conformal bootstrap to construct non-planar correlators in N = 4 super-Yang-Mills and to relate them to detailed features of perturbative type II closed string amplitudes. In particular, I will discuss how to construct the one-loop/genus-one, four-point string amplitude in AdS_5 × S^5 in the low-energy expansion, holographically dual to the N = 4 SYM four-point function of the half-BPS operator, in the ‘t Hooft limit at O(1/N^2) and in a strong coupling expansion.
