Holographic Baryons : Static Properties and Form Factors from Gauge/String Duality(Nuclear Physics)

  journal={Progress of Theoretical Physics},
In this paper, we study properties of baryons by using a holographic dual of QCD on the basis of the D4/D8-brane configuration, where baryons are described by a soliton. We first determine the asymptotic behavior of the soliton solution, which allows us to evaluate well-defined currents associated with the U(N_f)_L \times U(N_f)_R chiral symmetry. Using the currents, we compute static quantities of baryons such as charge radii and magnetic moments, and make a quantitative test with experiments…

Theta dependence in holographic QCD
A bstractWe study the effects of the CP-breaking topological θ-term in the large Nc QCD model by Witten, Sakai and Sugimoto with Nf degenerate light flavors. We first compute the ground state energy
A matrix model for baryons and nuclear forces

Baryon physics in holographic QCD
Abstract In a simple holographic model for QCD in which the Chern–Simons term is incorporated to take into account the QCD chiral anomaly, we show that baryons arise as stable solitons which are the
Chern-Simons 5-form and Holographic Baryons
In the top-down holographic model of QCD based on D4/D8-branes in type IIA string theory and some of the bottom up models, the low energy effective theory of mesons is described by a 5 dimensional
Nucleus from string theory
In generic holographic QCD, we find that baryons are bound to form a nucleus, and that its radius obeys the empirically-known mass number (A) dependence r A^{1/3} for large A. Our result is robust,
Baryon Transition in Holographic QCD
We propose a mechanism of holographic baryon transition in the Sakai-Sugimoto (SS) model: baryons in this model can jump to different states under the mediated effect of gravitons (or glueballs by

Comments on baryons in holographic QCD
We generalize the description of baryons as instantons of Sakai-Sugimoto model to the case where the flavor branes are non-anti-podal. The later corresponds to quarks with a ``string endpoint mass''.
Baryons under strong magnetic fields or in theories with space-dependent θ -term
Baryonic states are sufficiently complex to reveal physics that is hidden in the mesonic bound states. Using gauge/gravity correspondence we study analytically and numerically baryons in theories
