Conformal operators for partially massless states

  title={Conformal operators for partially massless states},
  author={Louise Dolan and Chiara R. Nappi},
The AdS/CFT correspondence is explored for “partially massless” fields in AdS space (which have fewer helicity states than a massive field but more than a conventional massless field). Such fields correspond in the boundary conformal field theory to fields obeying a certain conformally-invariant differential equation that has been described by Eastwood et al. The first descendant of such a field is a conformal field of negative norm. Hence, partially massless fields may make more physical sense… CONTINUE READING
