Anomalous Dimensions of
Double-Trace Operators from AdS/CFT
In this talk I will describe a new method for computing the
leading-order anomalous dimensions of double-trace operators in 4d
SCFTs with weakly-coupled gravity duals. This new method considerably
simplifies previous approaches based on the four-point function.
Studying a minimal toy model, I will show that for a range of
parameters, the anomalous dimension of φ†φ can be
positive. Finally, I will discuss the potential applications of this to
SUSY model building.
