The boundary Weyl anomaly in the N = 4 SYM / type IIB supergravity correspondence.

Mansfield, P. and Nolland, D. and Ueno, T. (2004) 'The boundary Weyl anomaly in the N = 4 SYM / type IIB supergravity correspondence.', Journal of high energy physics., 2004 (01). 013.


We give a complete account of the Schrödinger representation approach to the calculation of the Weyl anomaly of = 4 SYM from the AdS/CFT correspondence. On the AdS side, the 1/N2 correction to the leading order result receives contributions from all the fields of type-IIB Supergravity, the contribution of each field being given by a universal formula. The correct matching with the CFT result is thus a highly non-trivial test of the correspondence.
