1 / N Effects in Non-Relativistic Gauge-Gravity Duality

  title={1 / N Effects in Non-Relativistic Gauge-Gravity Duality},
  author={A. Wilfrid Adams and A Kenneth L. Maloney and Aninda Sinha and Samuel E. V{\'a}zquez},
We argue that higher-curvature terms in the gravitational Lagrangian lead, via non-relativistic gauge-gravity duality, to finite renormalization of the dynamical exponent of the dual conformal field theory. Our argument includes a proof of the non-renormalization of the Schrödinger and Lifshitz metrics beyond rescalings of their parameters, directly generalizing the AdS case. We use this effect to construct string-theory duals of non-relativistic critical systems with non-integer dynamical… CONTINUE READING
