Title Perturbative RG Flows in AdS
Abstract We discuss general properties of perturbative RG flows in AdS with a focus on the treatment of boundary conditions and infrared divergences. In contrast with flat-space boundary QFT, general covariance in AdS implies the absence of independent boundary flows. We illustrate how boundary correlation functions remain conformally covariant even if the bulk QFT has a scale. We apply our general discussion to the RG flow between consecutive unitary diagonal minimal models which is triggered by the φ(1,3) operator. For these theories we conjecture a flow diagram whose form is significantly simpler than that in flat-space boundary QFT.
