We use holographic techniques to study SU(Nc) super Yang-Mills theory coupled to Nf â‰ª Nc flavours of fundamental matter at finite temperature and baryon density. We focus on four dimensions, forâ€¦ (More)

Recently holographic techniques have been used to study the thermal properties of N = 2 super-Yang-Mills theory, with gauge group SU(Nc) and coupled to Nf â‰ª Nc flavours of fundamental matter, atâ€¦ (More)

In this paper we study surface operators in N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory. We compute surface operator observables, such as the expectation value of surface operators, the correlationâ€¦ (More)

We compute at strong coupling the large N correlation functions of supersymmetric Wilson loops in large representations of the gauge group with local operators of N = 4 super Yang-Mills. The gaugeâ€¦ (More)

We construct smooth asymptotically AdS5Ã—S solutions of Type IIB supergravity corresponding to all the half-BPS surface operators in N = 4 SYM. All the parameters labeling a half-BPS surface operatorâ€¦ (More)

Recent Holographic studies have shown that N=4 super Yang-Mills theory coupled to fundamental matter with finite chemical potential undergoes a first order phase transition. In this paper, we studyâ€¦ (More)

Starting from concrete AdS/CFT dual pairs, one can introduce ingredients which produce cosmological solutions, including metastable de Sitter and its decay to nonaccelerating FRW. We present simpleâ€¦ (More)

We demonstrate a holographic realization of color-flavor locking phase, using N = 4 SU(Nc) SYM coupled to N = 2 Nf fundamental hypermultiplets as an example. The gravity dual consists of Nc D3-branesâ€¦ (More)
