Recursion relations for anomalous dimensions in the 6d (2, 0) theory.

Abl, Theresa and Heslop, Paul and Lipstein, Arthur E. (2019) 'Recursion relations for anomalous dimensions in the 6d (2, 0) theory.', Journal of high energy physics., 2019 (4). 038.


We derive recursion relations for the anomalous dimensions of double-trace operators occurring in the conformal block expansion of four-point stress tensor correlators in the 6d (2, 0) theory, which encode higher-derivative corrections to supergravity in AdS7 × S4 arising from M-theory. As a warm-up, we derive analogous recursion relations for four-point functions of scalar operators in a toy non-supersymmetric 6d conformal field theory.
