One-loop Partition Functions of 3D Gravity
We consider the one-loop partition function of free quantum field theory in locally Anti-de Sitter space-times. In three dimensions, the one loop determinants for scalar, gauge and gravitonExpand

Chern–Simons theory with vector fermion matter
We study three-dimensional conformal field theories described by U(N) Chern–Simons theory at level k coupled to massless fermions in the fundamental representation. By solving a Schwinger–DysonExpand

AdS description of induced higher-spin gauge theory
A bstractWe study deformations of three-dimensional large N CFTs by double-trace operators constructed from spin s single-trace operators of dimension Δ. These theories possess UV fixed points, andExpand

Higher spin gauge theory and holography: the three-point functions
In this paper we calculate the tree level three-point functi ons of Vasiliev’s higher spin gauge theory in AdS4 and find agreement with the correlators of the free field theory of N massless scalarsExpand

Supersymmetric Wilson loops on S**3.
This paper studies in great detail a family of supersymmetric Wilson loop operators in = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory we have recently found. For a generic curve on an S3 in space-time theExpand

One loop tests of higher spin AdS/CFT
A bstractVasiliev’s type A higher spin theories in AdS4 have been conjectured to be dual to the U(N) or O(N) singlet sectors in 3-d conformal field theories with N-component scalar fields. We compareExpand

The thermal free energy in large N Chern-Simons-matter theories
A bstractWe compute the thermal free energy in large N U(N) Chern-Simons-matter theories with matter fields (scalars and/or fermions) in the fundamental representation, in the large temperatureExpand

Higher spins in AdS and twistorial holography
In this paper we simplify and extend previous work on three-point functions in Vasiliev’s higher spin gauge theory in AdS4. We work in a gauge in which the space-time dependence of Vasiliev’s masterExpand

Spin Chains in N = 6 Superconformal Chern-Simons-Matter Theory
In this note we study spin chain operators in the N = 6 Chern-Simons-matter theory recently proposed by Aharony, Bergman, Jafferis and Maldacena to be dual to type IIA string theory in AdS4 × CP 3 .Expand

Three loop analysis of the critical O (N) models in 6-ε dimensions
We continue the study, initiated in arXiv:1404.1094, of the $O(N)$ symmetric theory of $N+1$ massless scalar fields in $6-\epsilon$ dimensions. This theory has cubic interaction terms $\frac{1}{2}g_1Expand
