Axial anomalies of Lifshitz fermions

We compute the axial anomaly of a Lifshitz fermion theory with anisotropic scaling z = 3 which is minimally coupled to geometry in 3+1 space‐time dimensions. We find that the result is identical to


We give a review of some group-theoretical results related to nonrelativistic holography. Our main playgrounds are the Schrodinger equation and the Schrodinger algebra. We first recall the



A Non-Relativistic Weyl Anomaly

We examine the Weyl anomaly for a four-dimensional z = 3 Lifshitz scalar coupled to Hořava's theory of anisotropic gravity. We find a one-loop break-down of scale-invariance at second order in the

Twenty years of the Weyl anomaly

In 1973 two Salam proteges (Derek Capper and the author) discovered that the conformal invariance under Weyl rescalings of the metric tensor displayed by classical massless-field systems in

Nonrelativistic conformal field theories

We study representations of the Schr\"odinger algebra in terms of operators in nonrelativistic conformal field theories. We prove a correspondence between primary operators and eigenstates of

Gravity duals for nonrelativistic conformal field theories.

This work attempts to generalize the anti-de Sitter/conformal field theory correspondence to nonrelativistic conformal field theories which are invariant under Galilean transformations, and constructs a family of metrics which realize these symmetries as isometries.

Fermions in nonrelativistic AdS/CFT correspondence

We extend the nonrelativistic AdS/CFT correspondence to the fermionic fields. In particular, we study the two point function of a fermionic operator in nonrelativistic CFTs by making use of a massive

A nonrelativistic scalar field theory with a quartic self-interaction in 2+1 dimensions as an infinite mass limit of a relativistic theory is constructed and an anomalous breaking of scale symmetry is revealed.

NR CFT3 duals in M-theory

We extend the search for supergravity solution duals of non-relativistic d = 3 CFTs with dynamical exponent z = 2 to d = 11 supergravity. We consider the internal space to be an S2 bundle over a

The holographic Weyl anomaly

We calculate the Weyl anomaly for conformal field theories that can be described via the adS/CFT correspondence. This entails regularizing the gravitational part of the corresponding supergravity
