Within the framework of the AdS_5 /CFT_4 correspondence, the GKP string living on a AdS_5 ⊗ S^5 background finds a counterpart in the antiferromagnetic vacuum state for the spin chain, fruitfully employed to investigate the dual N = 4 SYM superconformal gauge theory. Integrability underlying such a model allows us to analyse the excitations over the vacuum considered, by computing their scattering matrices and dispersion relations.
