Geometrically Induced Phase Transitions at Large N

  • Jonathan J. Heckman
  • Published 2007


Utilizing the large N dual description of a metastable system of branes and antibranes wrapping rigid homologous S’s in a non-compact Calabi-Yau threefold, we study phase transitions induced by changing the positions of the S’s. At leading order in 1/N the effective potential for this system is computed by the planar limit of an auxiliary matrix model… (More)
