It was proposed by Maldacena that the large N limit of certain conformal field theories can be described in terms of supergravity on anti-De Sitter spaces (AdS). Recently, Gubser, Klebanov and Polyakov and Witten have conjectured that the generating functional for certain correlation functions in conformal field theory is given by the classical supergravity action on AdS. It was shown that the spectra of states of the two theories are matched and the two-point correlation function was studied. We consider a model of scalar field with self-interaction and compare the three- and four-point correlation functions computed from a classical action on AdS with the large N limit of conformal theory. An extension of Maldacena’s proposal is discussed. We argue that the large N limit of certain conformal field theories in a p-brane background can be described in terms of supergravity on the corresponding background. We discuss also the large N limit for the Wilson loop and suggest that singletons which according to Flato and Fronsdal are constituents of composite fields in spacetime should obey the quantum Boltzmann statistics. 1 1
