Glueball Mass Spectrum from Supergravity

We review the calculation of the spectrum of glueball masses in
non-supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory using the conjectured duality
between supergravity and large N gauge theories. The glueball masses
are obtained by solving the supergravity wave equations in a black
hole geometry. The glueball masses found this way are in unexpected
agreement with the available lattice data. We also show how to use a
modified version of the duality based on rotating branes to
calculate the glueball mass spectrum with some of the Kaluza-Klein
states of the supergravity theory decoupled from the spectrum.
