Finite size corrections in the gamma_i-deformed N=4 SYM theory

12 May 2014
Christoph Seig
<em>The gamma_i-deformed N=4 SYM was proposed as the conformal field theory in a non-supersymmetric deformation of the AdS/CFT correspondence. As we have shown, conformal invariance is, however, broken in this theory by running double-trace couplings. Although these couplings are apparently suppressed in 't Hooft's planar limit, they give rise to finite size corrections in the planar spectrum. In particular, they should be considered in the integrability-based formulation of the planar spectral problem. In the talk, I will explain our results in detail and also discuss possible implications for the conjectured integrability-based approach.</em>
