In the three-dimensional anti-de Sitter spacetime/two-dimensional conformal field theory correspondence, we derive the imaginary-time path-integral of a non-relativistic particle in the anti-de Sitter bulk space, which is dual to the ground state, from the holographic principle.
This derivation is based on
(i) the author's previous argument that the holographic principle asserts that the anti-de Sitter bulk space as a holographic tensor network after classicalization has as many stochastic classicalized spin degrees of freedom as there are sites and
(ii) the reinterpretation of the Euclidean action of a free particle as the action of classicalized spins.
