Fermions and the Sch/nrCFT correspondence

Robert G. Leigh, Nam Nguyen Hoang

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We consider the problem of Dirac fermions propagating on a spacetime of Schrödinger isometry and the associated boundary Euclidean two-point function of fermionic scaling operators of the holographic dual non-relativistic conformal theory. Paying careful attention to the representations of the Schrödinger algebra that appear in this problem, we show carefully how the on-shell action is constructed and how the boundary theory may be renormalized consistently by the inclusion of appropriate Galilean invariant boundary counterterms.
