Abstract

We carry out field redefinitions in ten-dimensional Type IIB supergravity and show that they do not give rise to any physical corrections to the holographic renormalization group structure in the AdS/CFT correspondence. We in particular show that the holographic Weyl anomaly of the N = 4 SU(N) super Yang-Mills theory does not change under the field redefinition of the ten-dimensional metric of the form GMN → GMN + αRGMN + β RMN. These results are consistent with the fact that classical supergravity represents the on-shell structure of massless modes of superstrings, which should not change under redefinitions of fields.
