Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Holographic conformal anomalies in higher-spin theory

Presented by Wei Li, Durham University

31 October 2014 13:00 in CM221

When a conformal field theory has a holographic bulk dual, its conformal anomalies can be more easily computed from the bulk side. A conformal field theory with higher-spin symmetries has both ordinary conformal anomalies and higher-spin ones. I will discuss how to compute them from the bulk side.
