# Chiral currents and static properties of nucleons in holographic QCD

@article{Hata2008ChiralCA, title={Chiral currents and static properties of nucleons in holographic QCD}, author={Hiroyuki Hata and Masaki Murata and Shinichi Yamato}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2008}, volume={78}, pages={086006} }

We analyze static properties of nucleons in the two flavor holographic QCD model of Sakai and Sugimoto described effectively by a five-dimensional U(2) Yang-Mills theory with the Chern-Simons term on a curved background. The baryons are represented in this model as a soliton, which at a time slice is approximately the Belavin-Polyakov-Shvarts-Tyupkin (BPST) instanton with a fixed size. First, we construct a chiral current in four dimensions from the Noether current of local gauge…
