- AdS Box Graphs, Unitarity and Operator Product Expansions (2000)
- Abstract: We develop a method of singularity analysis for conformal graphs which, in particular, is applicable to the holographic image of AdS supergravity theory. It can be used to determine the critical exponents for any such graph in a given channel. These exponents determine the towers of conformal blocks that are exchanged in this channel. We analyze the scalar AdS box graph and show that it has the same critical exponents as the corresponding CFT box graph. Thus pairs of external fields couple to the same exchanged conformal blocks in both theories. This is looked upon as a general structural argument supporting the Maldacena hypothesis.
- Conformal partial wave analysis of AdS amplitudes for dilaton-axion four-point functions (2001)
- Abstract: Operator product expansions are applied to dilaton-axion four-point functions. In the expansions of the bilocal fields "doubble Phi", CC and "Phi"C, the conformal fields which are symmetric traceless tensors of rank l and have dimensions "delta" = 2+l or 8+l+ "eta"(l) and "eta"(l) = O(N ^ -2) are identified. The unidentified field have dimension "delta" = "lambda"+l+eta(l) with "lambda" >= 10. The anomalous dimensions eta(l) are calculated at order O(N ^ -2) for both 2 ^ -1/2(-"doubble Phi" + CC) and 2 ^ -1/2(-"Phi"C + C"Phi") and are found to be the same, proving U(1)_Y symmetry. The relevant coupling constants are given at order O(1).
