Furthermore, in order to resolve the scaling problems of Wyler's expression, Gilmore showed why it is essential to use dimensionless volumes by setting the throat sizes of the Anti de Sitter hyperboloids to r = 1, because this is the only choice for r where all elements in the bounded domains are also coset representatives, and therefore, amount to honest group operations.
