# Exotic RG flows from holography

The AdS/CFT correspondence, a useful tool in the study of strongly coupled physics, relates fields, including gravity, in a d+1 dimensional asymptotically AdS space-time to operators in a d-dimensional Conformal Field Theory (CFT), in a one-to-one correspondence. The extra spatial dimension appearing in the gravitational side of the duality, the holographic dimension, is in correspondence with an energy scale on the QFT side: fields evolving along the holographic dimension are dual to renormalization group flows of couplings to the dual QFT operators.
