In hep-th/0402219 we considered large N zero-coupling d-dimensional U(N) gauge theories, with N_f matter fields in the fundamental representation on a compact spatial manifold S^{d-1}x time, with N_f/N finite. This class of theories undergo a 3rd order deconfinement transition. As a consequence it was proposed that the dual string theory has a 3rd order phase-transition to a black hole at high temperature. In this paper we argue that the same conclusions are valid for such theories at any… 
Dissolved deconfinement: Phase structure of large N gauge theories with fundamental matter
A class of large N U(N) gauge theories on a compact manifold S{sup 3}xR (with possible inclusion of adjoint matter) is known to show first-order deconfinement transition at the deconfinement
Phases of Thermal N=2 Quiver Gauge Theories
We consider large N U(N)^M thermal N=2 quiver gauge theories on S^1 x S^3. We obtain a phase diagram of the theory with R-symmetry chemical potentials, separating a low-temperature/high-chemical
Holographic effective theories for strongly coupled physics
In this thesis we summarize three of our work using the gauge/gravity dualities to build effective theories for strongly coupled phenomena. First, we study the thermodynamics of large N pure 2+1
Supersymmetric Partition Functions in the AdS/CFT Conjecture
We study supersymmetric partition functions in several versions of the AdS/CFT correspondence. We present an Index for superconformal field theories in d = 3, 4, 5, 6. This captures all information

Phases of N = infinity QCD-like gauge theories on S**3 x S**1 and nonperturbative orbifold-orientifold equivalences
We study the phase diagrams of N = ∞ vector-like, asymptotically free gauge theories as a function of volume, on S3 × S1. The theories of interest are the ones with fermions in two index
The 2-loop partition function of large N gauge theories with adjoint matter on S 3
We compute the 2-loop thermal partition function of Yang-Mills theory on a small 3-sphere, in the large N limit with weak 't Hooft coupling λ = gYM2N. We include Ns scalars and Nf chiral fermions in
