We discuss the computation of the anomalous dimension (in the large N, but non-planar limit) of a (2+1)-dimensional conformal field theory (CFT) that is dual to 4-dimensional gravitational theory on anti-de Sitter (AdS) space. In CFTs, a basic observable is the conformal dimension rather than the S-matrix. This conformal dimension is a combination of the classical mass dimension and a quantum correction. It is this quantum correction, otherwise known as the anomalous dimension, whose computation will be discussed in this talk. The calculation employs group representation theory as developed in recent work.
