In recent literature, several new tests of the higher-spin Anti-de Sitter/Conformal Field Theory (AdS/CFT) correspondence have been carried out. These tests involve leading quantum corrections of the higher spin theory in the d + 1 dimensional AdS space, which correspond to 1/N corrections in the d-dimensional large N CFT. We extend these results to a more general set of theories in various space–time dimensions d > 2. In addition to the "Type A" theories which are dual to vector model CFTs of N scalar fields, we study the "Type B" theories, which have been conjectured to be dual to CFTs constructed from N fermionic fields. We also explore the "Type C" theories, which are conjecturally dual to the CFTs of p-form gauge fields, where p = d/2 − 1, including the theories of N Maxwell fields in four space–time dimensions.
