We study the tensions of domain walls in the deconfined phase of = 4 SUSY Yang-Mills theory on 3 × S1, at weak and strong coupling. We calculate the k-wall tension at one-loop order and find that it is proportional to k(N−k) (Casimir scaling). The two-loops analysis suggests that Casimir scaling persists to this order. The strong coupling calculation is performed by using the AdS/CFT correspondence. We argue that the k-wall should be identified with an NS5-brane wrapping an S4 inside S5 in the…

Fate of Z(N) walls in hot holographic QCD

We first study ZN walls/interfaces in a deconfined phase of Witten's D4-brane background of pure SU(N) Yang-Mills theory, motivated by a recent work in the case of N = 4 SYM. Similarly to it, we
