@article{Yamaguchi2006BUBBLINGGF, title={BUBBLING GEOMETRIES FOR HALF-BPS WILSON LINES}, author={Satoshi Yamaguchi}, journal={International Journal of Modern Physics A}, year={2006}, volume={22}, pages={1353-1374} }

We consider the supergravity backgrounds that correspond to supersymmetric Wilson line operators in the context of AdS/CFT correspondence. We study the gravitino and dilatino conditions of the IIB supergravity under the appropriate ansatz, and obtain some necessary conditions for a supergravity background that preserves the same symmetry as the supersymmetric Wilson lines. The supergravity solutions are characterized by continuous version of Maya diagrams. This diagram is related to the…
