Engineering a bosonic AdS/CFT correspondence
Abstract
We search for a possible bosonic (i.e. nonsupersymmetric) string/gauge theory correspondence by using IIB and 0B strings as a guide. Our construction is based on the lowenergy bosonic string effective action modified by an extra form flux. The closed string tachyon can be stabilyzed if the AdS scale L does not exceed certain critical value, L<L_c. We argue that the extra form may be generated as a soliton from 3string junctions, similarly to the known nonperturbative (JackiwRebbi't HooftHasenfratz) mechanism in gauge theories. The stable AdS_{13} x S^{13} solution is found, which apparently implies the existence of a 12dimensional AdSboundary conformal field theory with the SO(14) global symmetry in the large N 't Hooft limit. We also generalize the conjectured AdS/CFT duality to finite temperature, and calculate the `glueball' masses from the dilaton wave equation in the AdS black hole background, in various spacetime dimensions.
