  author={Emiliano Imeroni and Asad Naqvi},
We study extended objects in the gravity dual of the N = 1 β-deformation of N = 4 Super Yang–Mills theory. We identify probe brane configurations corresponding to giant gravitons and Wilson loops. In particular we identify a new class of objects, given by D5-branes wrapped on a two-torus with a world-volume gauge field strength turned on along the torus. These appear when the deformation parameter assumes a rational value and the gauge theory spectrum has additional branches of vacua. We give… CONTINUE READING
