Gravity and Yang-Mills theory

The Einstein-Hilbert theory is believed to differ greatly from Yang-Mills theory. Surprisingly, the two theories share close perturbative ties. This talk will review these links between Yang-Mills theory and Einstein-Hilbert theory. We will discuss the origin of these connections and their possible implications for a quantum theory of gravity.
