Stability in Gauged Extended Supergravity

- P. Breitenlohner, D. Freedman
- Physics
- 1 December 1982

Extended supergravity theories with gauged SO(N) internal symmetry have, for N ≥ 4, scalar field potentials which are unbounded below. Nevertheless, it is argued that the theories have ground states… Expand

Renormalization group flows from holography supersymmetry and a c theorem

- D. Freedman, S. Gubser, K. Pilch, N. Warner
- Physics
- 3 April 1999

We obtain first order equations that determine a supersymmetric kink solution in fivedimensional N = 8 gauged supergravity. The kink interpolates between an exterior anti-de Sitter region with… Expand

Non-perturbative formulas for central functions of supersymmetric gauge theories

- D. Anselmi, D. Freedman, M. Grisaru, A. Johansen
- Physics
- 7 August 1997

Abstract For quantum field theories that flow between ultraviolet and infrared fixed points, central functions, defined from two-point correlators of the stress tensor and conserved currents,… Expand

Positive Energy in anti-De Sitter Backgrounds and Gauged Extended Supergravity

- P. Breitenlohner, D. Freedman
- Physics
- 2 September 1982

The energy functional of a field theory with anti-de Sitter background geometry can be positive for scalar potentials which are unbounded below and for vacua corresponding to critical points which… Expand

Modeling the fifth dimension with scalars and gravity

- O. Dewolfe, D. Freedman, S. Gubser, A. Karch
- Physics
- 20 September 1999

A method for obtaining solutions to the classical equations for scalars plus gravity in five dimensions is applied to some recent suggestions for brane-world phenomenology. The method involves only… Expand

Holography and defect conformal field theories

- O. Dewolfe, D. Freedman, H. Ooguri
- Physics
- 14 November 2001

We develop both the gravity and field theory sides of the Karch-Randall conjecture that the near-horizon description of a certain D5-D3 brane configuration in string theory, realized as AdS_5 x S^5… Expand

Correlation functions in the CFT(d) / AdS(d+1) correspondence

- D. Freedman, S. Mathur, A. Matusis, L. Rastelli
- Physics
- 7 April 1998

Abstract Conformal techniques are applied to the calculation of integrals on AdS d +1 space which define correlators of composite operators in the superconformal field theory on the d -dimensional… Expand

Supersymmetric gauge theories and the AdS / CFT correspondence

- E. D'hoker, D. Freedman
- Physics
- 30 January 2002

In these lecture notes we first assemble the basic ingredients of supersymmetric gauge theories (particularly N=4 super-Yang-Mills theory), supergravity, and superstring theory. Brane solutions are… Expand

PP-wave string interactions from perturbative Yang-Mills theory

- N. Constable, D. Freedman, +4 authors W. Skiba
- Physics
- 10 May 2002

Recently, Berenstein et al. have proposed a duality between a sector of = 4 super-Yang-Mills theory with large R-charge J, and string theory in a pp-wave background. In the limit considered, the… Expand

Holographic Renormalization

- M. Bianchi, D. Freedman, Kostas Skenderis
- Physics
- 13 December 2001

We systematically develop the procedure of holographic renormalization for RG flows dual to asymptotically AdS domain walls. All divergences of the on-shell bulk action can be cancelled by adding… Expand
