a from the N = 1 superconformal index


We present a prescription for obtaining the difference of the central charges, c−a, of a four dimensional superconformal quantum field theory from its single-trace index. The formula is derived from a one-loop holographic computation, but is expected to be valid independent of holography. We demonstrate the prescription with several holographic and non… (More)
