Some new results in AdS4/CFT3 duality

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


In this talk I will present two new results related to the duality of AdS4 backgrounds of M theory or Type IIA string theory and three-dimensional Chern-Simons-Matter theories. The first result is a 1/λ correction to the supergravity/CFT relation between R and λ in the original ABJM and ABJ models. This part is based on work with Shinji Hirano, that appeared in [1]. The second result concerns the generalization of the ABJM model to unequal CS levels, which has been conjectured to be dual to an AdS 4 solution of massive Type IIA supergravity. I will present a simple brane construction that supports this conjecture. This part is based on work with Gilad Lifschytz, that appeared in [2].
