Part of the NATO Science Series book series (NAII, volume 104)


We discuss multiple-trace deformations of a CFT with an AdS dual and demonstrate how these result in a change of the boundary conditions to which dual gravity fields are subjected. Our analysis suggests that fluctuations around the classical solution in AdS should not be constrained by boundary conditions.
