We argue that the AdS dual of the three dimensional critical O(N) vector model can be evaluated using the Legendre transform that relates the generating functionals of the free UV and the interacting IR fixed points of the boundary theory. As an example, we use our proposal to evaluate the minimal bulk action of the scalar field that it is dual to the spin-zero “current” of the O(N) vector model. We find that the cubic bulk self interaction coupling vanishes. We briefly discuss the implications… CONTINUE READING
