### Quark Mass in the Sakai-Sugimoto Model of Chiral Symmetry Breaking

- Physics
- 2007

We re-analyze D8 brane embeddings in the geometry of a D4 brane wrapped on a circle that describe chiral symmetry breaking in a strongly coupled non-supersymmetric gauge theory. We argue that if the…

### Holographic flavor in the gauge/gravity duality

- Physics
- 2008

In this paper we review some results on the generalization of the gauge/gravity duality to include fundamental matter by means of probe branes. We compute the meson spectrum of maximally…

### Separation of spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking and confinement via the AdS/CFT correspondence

- Physics
- 2005

We analyze, in the framework of AdS/CFT correspondence, the gauge theory phase structure that is supposed to be dual to the recently found nonsupersymmetric dilatonic deformations to AdS{sub 5}xS{sup…

### of High Energy Physics D 7 brane embeddings and chiral symmetry breaking

- Physics

We study the embedding of D7 brane probes in five geometries that are deformations of AdS5×S. Each case corresponds to the inclusion of quark fields in a dual gauge theory where we are interested in…

We study the embedding of D7 brane probes in five geometries that are deformations of AdS5 × S5. Each case corresponds to the inclusion of quark fields in a dual gauge theory where we are interested…

### Adding Open String Modes to the Gauge/gravity Correspondence

- Physics
- 2006

We review some recent results on the extension of the gauge/gravity correspondence to include matter in the fundamental representation by adding D-branes to the supergravity backgrounds. Working in…

### Criticality, scaling and chiral symmetry breaking in external magnetic field

- Physics
- 2008

We consider a D7-brane probe of AdS5 × S5 in the presence of pure gauge B-field. The dual gauge theory is flavored Yang-Mills theory in external magnetic field. We explore the dependence of the…

### Heavy-light mesons from the AdS/CFT correspondence

- Physics
- 2007

We propose a holographic description of heavy-light mesons, i.e. of mesons containing a light and a heavy quark. In the semi-classical string limit, we look at the dynamics of strings tied between…

### Fundamental matter, meson spectroscopy and non-critical string/gauge duality

- Physics
- 2006

We discuss the incorporation of quarks in the fundamental representation of the color group into the non-critical string/gauge duality. We focus on confining theories and address this question using…

### Dilaton coupled brane-world and field trapping

- Physics
- 2003

We address solutions of a brane-world with a cosmological constant $\ensuremath{\lambda}$ by introducing the dilaton in 5D bulk, and we examine the localization of the graviton, gauge bosons, and…

### Meson Spectroscopy in AdS/CFT with Flavour

- Physics
- 2003

We compute the meson spectrum of an = 2 super Yang-Mills theory with fundamental matter from its dual string theory on AdS5 × S5 with a D7-brane probe [1]. For scalar and vector mesons with arbitrary…

### Exotic scalar states in the AdS/CFT correspondence

- Physics, Mathematics
- 1999

We investigate a family of solutions of type-IIB supergravity which asymptotically approach AdS5 × S5 but contain a non-constant dilaton and volume scalar for the five-sphere. These solutions…

### The Wall of the cave

- Physics
- 1998

In this article old and new relations between gauge fields and strings are discussed. We add new arguments that the Yang–Mills theories must be described by the noncritical strings in the…
