@article{ChenLin2015HolographicWL, title={Holographic Wilson loops in symmetric representations in N=2∗\$\$ \mathcal\{N\} = \{2\}^\{\ast \} \$\$ super-Yang-Mills theory}, author={Xinyi Chen-Lin and Amit Dekel and Konstantin Zarembo}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2015}, volume={2016}, pages={1-21} }

A bstractWe construct the D3-brane solution in the holographic dual of the N=2∗$$ \mathcal{N} = {2}^{\ast } $$ theory that describes Wilson lines in symmetric representations of the gauge group. The results perfectly agree with the direct field-theory predictions based on localization.
