Anti de Sitter radius

  1. Feb 9, 2013 #1
    The AdS4 radius is related to the cosmological constant by [itex]\Lambda =\frac{-3}{b^{2}}[/itex].

    Is this true in any number of dimensions, or is there a generalised relation depending on number of dimensions n?

    In generic dimension [itex]d[/itex], the cosmological constant is related to AdS radius via [itex]\Lambda=-\frac{(d-1)(d-2)}{2\ell^2}[/itex].
