In this paper we discuss the supersymmetric localization of the 4D $ \mathcal{N} $ = 2 offshell gauged supergravity on the background of the AdS$_{4}$ neutral topological black hole, which is the gravity dual of the ABJM theory defined on the boundary $ {\mathrm{S}}^1\times {\mathrm{\mathbb{H}}}^2 $ . We compute the large-N expansion of the supergr...

Holographic RG flows are studied in an Einstein-dilaton theory with a general potential. The superpotential formalism is utilized in order to characterize and classify all solutions that are associated with asymptotically AdS space-times. Such solutions correspond to holographic RG flows and are characterized by their holographic β-functions. Novel...

We study BPS bound states of little strings in a limit where they realize monopole strings in five dimensional gauge theories. The latter have gauge group U(M)N and arise from compactification of (1,0) little string theories of type AM-1×AN-1. We find evidence that the partition function of a certain subclass of monopole strings of charge (k,…,k) (...

The modern conformal bootstrap program often employs the method of linear functionals to derive the numerical or analytical bounds on the CFT data. These functionals must have a crucial “swapping” property, allowing to swap infinite summation with the action of the functional in the conformal bootstrap sum rule. Swapping is easy to justify for the ...

We study the second-order phase transition in the d-dimensional Ising model with long-range interactions decreasing as a power of the distance $1/r^{d+s}$ . For s below some known value $s_*$ , the transition is described by a conformal field theory without a local stress tensor operator, with critical exponents varying continuously as functions of...

In the presence of boundaries the integrated conformal anomaly is modified by the boundary terms so that the anomaly is non-vanishing in any (even or odd) dimension. The boundary terms are due to extrinsic curvature whose exact structure in d=3 and d=4 has recently been identified. In this note we present a holographic calculation of those terms in...

We construct quasi-local conserved currents in the six-vertex model with anisotropy parameter η by making use of the quantum-group approach of Bernard and Felder. From these currents, we construct parafermionic operators with spin $1+\text{i}\eta /\pi $ that obey a discrete-integral condition around lattice plaquettes embedded into the complex plan...
