A black hole-like solution to a toy model scalar field action for the pion is presented. It has a "horizon" that traps pion field information (it cannot escape in finite time) and is thermal, with a finite and calculable temperature, $T=\sqrt{2}/(\pi\alpha)$, with $\alpha$ a coupling parameter. The action is a scalar DBI action (D-brane action), coupled to a particular fixed source term. The DBI action by itself has "catenoid" solutions that have horizons with infinite temperature and trap only… 

Diffractive Vector Meson Photoproduction from Dual String Theory

We study diffractive vector-meson photoproduction using string theory via AdS/CFT. The large s behavior of the cross sections for the scattering of the vector meson V on a proton is dominated by the

Aspects of Galileons

Galileons are a class of scalar field theories which have been found to arise in a disparate variety of contexts and exhibit a host of interesting properties by themselves, both classical and



The Large-N Limit of Superconformal Field Theories and Supergravity

We show that the large-N limits of certainconformal field theories in various dimensions includein their Hilbert space a sector describing supergravityon the product of anti-de Sitter spacetimes,

Plasma balls in large-N gauge theories and localized black holes

We argue for the existence of plasma balls—metastable, nearly homogeneous lumps of gluon plasma at just above the deconfinement energy density—in a class of large-N confining gauge theories that

Particle creation by black holes

AbstractIn the classical theory black holes can only absorb and not emit particles. However it is shown that quantum mechanical effects cause black holes to create and emit particles as if they were

The RHIC fireball as a dual black hole

We argue that the fireball observed at RHIC is (the analog of) a dual black hole. In previous works, we have argued that the large $s$ behaviour of the total QCD cross section is due to production of

The soft Pomeron from AdS-CFT

In previous treatments, high energy QCD was analyzed using AdS-CFT a la Polchinski-Strassler. Black hole production in AdS was responsible for power law behaviour of the total QCD cross section.

DBI skyrmion, high energy (large s) scattering and fireball production

We analyze the high energy scattering of hadrons in QCD in an effective theory model inspired from a gravity dual description. The nucleons are skyrmion-like solutions of a DBI action, and boosted

D-branes and near extremal black holes at low energies

Abstract It has been observed recently that many properties of some near extremal black holes can be described in terms of bound states of D-branes. Using a non-renormalization theorem we argue that
