ABJM at Strong Coupling from M-theory, Localization, and Lorentzian Inversion

  title={ABJM at Strong Coupling from M-theory, Localization, and Lorentzian Inversion},
  author={L. Alday and Shai M. Chester and Himanshu Raj},
We study the stress tensor multiplet four-point function in the 3d maximally supersymmetric ABJ(M) theory with Chern-Simons level k = 2, which in the large N limit is holographically dual to weakly coupled M-theory on AdS4 × S/Z2. We use the Lorentzian inversion to compute the 1-loop correction to this holographic correlator coming from Witten diagrams with supergravity R and the first higher derivative correction R vertices, up to a finite number of contact terms that contribute to low spins… Expand

The Holographic Contributions to the Sphere Free Energy
We study which bulk couplings contribute to the S free energy F (m) of three-dimensional N = 2 superconformal field theories with holographic duals, potentially deformed by boundary real-massExpand


ABJ correlators with weakly broken higher spin symmetry
We consider four-point functions of operators in the stress tensor multiplet of the 3d N = 6 U(N)k×U(N +M)−k or SO(2)2k×USp(2 + 2M)−k ABJ theories in the limit where M and k are taken to infinityExpand
M-theory reconstruction from (2,0) CFT and the chiral algebra conjecture
A bstractWe study various aspects of the M-theory uplift of the AN −1 series of (2, 0) CFTs in 6d, which describe the worldvolume theory of N M5 branes in flat space. We show how knowledge of OPEExpand
Implications of superconformal symmetry for interacting (2,0) tensor multiplets
Abstract We study the structure of the four-point correlation function of the lowest-dimension 1/2 BPS operators (stress-tensor multiplets) in the (2,0) six-dimensional theory. We first discuss theExpand
Correlation functions and massive Kaluza-Klein modes in the AdS//CFT correspondence
Abstract We study four-point correlation functions of 1 2 -BPS operators in N =4 SYM which are dual to massive KK modes in AdS5 supergravity. On the field theory side, the procedure of inserting theExpand
The analytic bootstrap for large N Chern-Simons vector models
A bstractThree-dimensional Chern-Simons vector models display an approximate higher spin symmetry in the large N limit. Their single-trace operators consist of a tower of weakly broken currents, asExpand
Gravitational S-matrix from CFT dispersion relations

Loops in AdS from conformal field theory

Duality and higher derivative terms in M theory
Dualities of M-theory are used to determine the exact dependence on the coupling constant of the D6 4 interaction of the IIA and IIB superstring effective action. Upon lifting to eleven dimensionsExpand

The N = 8 Superconformal Bootstrap in Three Dimensions
We analyze the constraints imposed by unitarity and crossing symmetry on the fourpoint function of the stress-tensor multiplet of N = 8 superconformal field theories in three dimensions. We firstExpand
