Complementarity of the Maldacena and Randall-Sundrum pictures. (English) Zbl 1369.83089
Summary: We revive an old result, that one-loop corrections to the graviton propagator induce 1/r3 corrections to the Newtonian gravitational potential, and compute the coefficient due to closed loops of the \(U(N)\) \(N=4\) super-Yang-Mills theory that arises in Maldacena’s anti–de Sitter conformal field theory correspondence. We find exact agreement with the coefficient appearing in the Randall-Sundrum brane-world proposal. This provides more evidence for the complementarity of the two pictures.
