A bstractWe study the cusped Wilson line operators and Bremsstrahlung functions associated to particles transforming in the rank-k symmetric representation of the gauge group U(N) for N=4$$ \mathcal{N}=4 $$ super Yang-Mills. We find the holographic D3-brane description for Wilson loops with internal cusps in two different limits: small cusp angle and kλ≫N$$ k\sqrt{\lambda}\gg N $$. This allows for a non-trivial check of a conjectured relation between the Bremsstrahlung function and the…
