Title: Note on anomalies in the AdS-CFT correspondence

Abstract

We test the AdS-CFT correspondence in the case of a d=4 N=2 superconformal field theory by comparing chiral anomalies which are of order [ital N] in the [close quote]t Hooft large [ital N] limit. These include corrections of order 1/N to the conformal anomaly, thus testing the correspondence beyond the extreme large [ital N] limit. The field theory anomalies are reproduced by terms in the 7-brane effective action in the bulk. [copyright] [ital 1999] [ital The American Physical Society]
