AdS/CFT predicts a precise relation between the central charge a, the scaling dimensions of some operators in the CFT on D3-branes at conical singularities and the volumes of the horizon and of certain cycles in the supergravity dual. We review how a quantitative check of this relation can be performed for all toric singularities. In addition to the results presented in hep-th/0506232, we also discuss the relation with the recently discovered map between toric singularities and tilings; in… CONTINUE READING
