Order 1/N2 test of the Maldacena conjecture : cancellation of the one-loop Weyl anomaly.

Mansfield, Paul and Nolland, David (2000) 'Order 1/N2 test of the Maldacena conjecture : cancellation of the one-loop Weyl anomaly.', Physics letters B., 495 (3-4). pp. 435-439.


We test the Maldacena conjecture for type IIB string theory / Yang–Mills by calculating the one-loop corrections in the bulk theory to the Weyl anomaly of the boundary CFT when the latter is coupled to a Ricci flat metric. The contributions cancel within each supermultiplet, in agreement with the conjecture.
