We study the low energy dynamics of pions in a gravity dual of chiral symmetry breaking. The string theory construction consists of a probe D7 brane in the Constable-Myers nonsupersymmetric background, which has been shown to describe chiral symmetry breaking in the pattern of QCD. We expand the D7 brane's Dirac-Born-Infeld action for fluctuations that correspond to the Goldstone mode and show that they take the form of a nonlinear chiral Lagrangian. We numerically compute the quark condensate… Expand
Chiral symmetry breaking from five-dimensional spaces
Abstract Based on the AdS/CFT correspondence we study the breaking of the chiral symmetry in QCD using a simple five-dimensional model. The model gives definite predictions for the spectrum of vectorExpand

Chiral symmetry breaking as open string tachyon condensation
Abstract We consider a general framework to study holographically the dynamics of fundamental quarks in a confining gauge theory. Flavors are introduced by placing a set of (coincident) branes andExpand

Adding flavor to AdS/CFT
Coupling fundamental quarks to QCD in the dual string representation corresponds to adding the open string sector. Flavors therefore should be represented by space-time filling D-branes in the dualExpand
Analytic non-supersymmetric background dual of a confining gauge theory and the corresponding plane wave theory of hadrons

Hadron masses and screening from anti-de Sitter space Wilson loops.
It is shown that in strongly coupled N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills conformal theory the binding energy of a heavy and a light quark is independent of the strength of the coupling constant, and the analog of the QCD string can snap and color charges are screened. Expand
