Quantum gravity from conformal field theory.

Aprile, F. and Drummond, J. M. and Heslop, P. and Paul, H. (2018) 'Quantum gravity from conformal field theory.', Journal of high energy physics., 2018 . p. 35.


We bootstrap loop corrections to AdS5 supergravity amplitudes by enforcing the consistency of the known classical results with the operator product expansion of NN = 4 super Yang-Mills theory. In particular this yields much new information on the spectrum of double-trace operators which can then be used, in combination with superconformal symmetry and crossing symmetry, to obtain a prediction for the one-loop amplitude for four graviton multiplets in AdS. This in turn yields further new results on subleading O(1/N 4) corrections to certain double-trace anomalous dimensions.
