We propose a direct correspondence between the classical evolution equations of 5-d supergravity and the renormalization group (RG) equations of the dual 4-d large N gauge theory. Using standard Hamilton-Jacobi theory, we derive first order flow equations for the classical supergravity action S, that take the usual form of the Callan-Symanzik equations, including the corrections due to the conformal anomaly. This result gives direct support for the identification of S with the quantum effective… CONTINUE READING
