Maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories that take part in the gauge/gravity duality conjecture can be formulated on a spacetime lattice using the methods of twisting and orbifolding. Such lattice constructions are exact supersymmetric, gauge invariant, local and free from fermion doublers on the lattice. In this talk I will provide the constructions of such lattice theories, including the well known N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills in four dimensions. I will also provide some results from Monte Carlo simulations of such theories that are relevant for testing and validating the gauge/gravity duality conjecture.
