@article{Brandhuber2000CurrentCI, title={Current correlators in the Coulomb branch of N=4 SYM}, author={Andreas Brandhuber and Konstadinos Sfetsos}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2000}, volume={2000}, pages={014} }

We study correlators of R-symmetry currents in the Coulomb branch of N = 4 supersymmetric gauge theory in the large-N limit, using the AdS/CFT correspondence. In particular, we consider gauge fields in the presence of gravity and scalar fields parameterizing the coset SL(6,R)/SO(6) in the context of five-dimensional gauged supergravity. From a ten-dimensional point of view these backgrounds correspond to continuous D3-brane distributions. We find the surprising result that all 2-point functions…
