We consider a nonsupersymmetric example of the AdS/CFT duality which generalizes the supersymmetric exactly marginal deformation constructed in hep-th/0502086. The string theory background we use was found in hep-th/0503201 from the AdS5 × S 5 by a combination of T-dualities and shifts of angular coordinates. It depends on three real parameters γi which determine the shape of the deformed 5-sphere. The dual gauge theory has the same field content as N = 4 SYM theory, but with scalar and Yukawa… Expand
