@article{Erdmenger2020HolographicRF, title={Holographic RG flows for Kondo-like impurities}, author={Johanna Erdmenger and Charles M. Melby-Thompson and Christian Northe}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2020}, volume={2020}, pages={1-62} }

Boundary, defect, and interface RG flows, as exemplified by the famous Kondo model, play a significant role in the theory of quantum fields. We study in detail the holographic dual of a non-conformal supersymmetric impurity in the D1/D5 CFT. Its RG flow bears similarities to the Kondo model, although unlike the Kondo model the CFT is strongly coupled in the holographic regime. The interface we study preserves d = 1 N $$ \mathcal{N} $$ = 4 supersymmetry and flows to conformal fixed points in…

A gradient formula for the boundary beta function is proved, expressing it as the gradient of the boundary entropy s at fixed nonzero temperature, which implies that s decreases under renormalization, except at critical points (where it stays constant).
