Higgs phenomenon for higher spin fields on AdS 3

In a previous work, a marginal deformation of 2d coset type model with N = 3 superconformal symmetry was studied, and it was interpreted as a change of boundary conditions for bulk fields in the dual higher spin theory. The deformation breaks generic higher spin gauge symmetry, and the generated mass of a spin 2 field was computed. The deformation is… (More)
