Vector Beta Function

We propose various properties of renormalization group beta functions for vector operators in relativistic quantum field theories. We argue that they must satisfy compensated gauge invariance,

On Newton-Cartan local renormalization group and anomalies

A bstractWeyl consistency conditions are a powerful tool to study the irreversibility properties of the renormalization group. We apply this formalism to non-relativistic theories in 2 spatial

On three-dimensional trace anomaly from holographic local RG

Odd-dimensional quantum field theories (QFTs) can have nonzero trace anomalies if external fields are introduced and some ingredients needed to make Lorentz scalars with appropriate mass dimensions

Consequences of Weyl consistency conditions

A bstractThe running of quantum field theories can be studied in detail with the use of a local renormalization group equation. The usual beta-function effects are easy to include, but by introducing

Local renormalization group functions from quantum renormalization group and holographic bulk locality

The bulk locality in the constructive holographic renormalization group requires miraculous cancellations among various local renormalization group functions. The cancellation is not only from the

Renormalization and redundancy in 2d quantum field theories

A bstractWe analyze renormalization group (RG) flows in two-dimensional quantum field theories in the presence of redundant directions. We use the operator picture in which redundant operators are

Canceling the Weyl anomaly from a position-dependent coupling

Once we put a quantum field theory on a curved manifold, it is natural to further assume that coupling constants are position dependent. The position dependent coupling constants then provide an

Constraints on RG Flow for Four Dimensional Quantum Field Theories

Can we change c in four-dimensional CFTs by exactly marginal deformations?

A bstractThere is no known obstructions, but we have not been aware of any concrete examples, either. The Wess-Zumino consistency condition for the conformal anomaly says that a cannot change but

Local renormalization group functions from quantum renormalization group and holographic bulk locality

A bstractThe bulk locality in the constructive holographic renormalization group requires miraculous cancellations among various local renormalization group functions. The cancellation is not only

On renormalization group flows in four dimensions

A bstractWe discuss some general aspects of renormalization group flows in four dimensions. Every such flow can be reinterpreted in terms of a spontaneously broken conformal symmetry. We analyze in

Scale Invariance + Unitarity => Conformal Invariance?

We revisit the long-standing conjecture that in unitary field theories, scale invariance implies conformality. We explain why the Zamolodchikov-Polchinski proof in D=2 does not work in higher

Holography, a covariant c function, and the geometry of the renormalization group

We propose a covariant geometrical expression for the c function for theories which admit dual gravitational descriptions. We state a c theorem with respect to this quantity and prove it. We apply

No forbidden landscape in string/M-theory

Scale invariant but non-conformal field theories are forbidden in (1 + 1) dimension, and so should be the corresponding holographic dual gravity theories. We conjecture that such scale invariant but

The holographic Weyl anomaly

We calculate the Weyl anomaly for conformal field theories that can be described via the adS/CFT correspondence. This entails regularizing the gravitational part of the corresponding supergravity
