We investigate how the holographic correspondence can be reformulated as a generalisation of Wilsonian RG flow in a strongly interacting large $N$ quantum field theory. We firstly define a \textit{highly efficient RG flow} as one in which the Ward identities related to local conservation of energy, momentum and charges preserve the same form at each scale -- to achieve this it is necessary to redefine the background metric and external sources at each scale as functionals of the effective single trace operators. These redefinitions also absorb the contributions of the multi-trace operators to these effective Ward identities. Thus the background metric and extern...

[20] This procedure is to take all possible diffeomorphism invariant Lagrangian densities (like R) up to fixed order in derivatives, and then construct the corresponding equations of motion (like the Einstein tensor for R). The diffeomorphism invariance of the Lagrangian implies the Bianchi identities.
