Multi-Trace Deformations in AdS / CFT : Exploring the Vacuum Structure of the Deformed CFT

  title={Multi-Trace Deformations in AdS / CFT : Exploring the Vacuum Structure of the Deformed CFT},
  author={Ioannis Papadimitriou},
We present a general and systematic treatment of multi-trace deformations in the AdS/CFT correspondence in the large N limit, pointing out and clarifying subtleties relating to the formulation of the boundary value problem on a conformal boundary. We then apply this method to study multi-trace deformations in the presence of a scalar VEV, which requires the coupling to gravity to be taken into account. We show that supergravity solutions subject to ‘mixed’ boundary conditions are in one-to-one… CONTINUE READING
