Boundary conformal invariants and the conformal anomaly in five dimensions

Abstract

In odd dimensions the integrated conformal anomaly is entirely due to the boundary terms \cite{Solodukhin:2015eca}. In this paper we present a detailed analysis of the anomaly in five dimensions. We give the complete list of the boundary conformal invariants that exist in five dimensions. Additionally to 8 invariants known before we find a new conformal invariant that contains the derivatives of the extrinsic curvature along the boundary. Then, for a conformal scalar field satisfying either the Dirichlet or the conformal invariant Robin boundary conditions we use the available general results for the heat kernel coefficient $a_5$, compute the conformal anomaly and identify the corresponding values of all boundary conformal charges.
