# Holographic melting and related properties of mesons in a quark-gluon plasma

@article{Peeters2006HolographicMA, title={Holographic melting and related properties of mesons in a quark-gluon plasma}, author={Kasper Peeters and Jacob Sonnenschein and Marija Zamaklar}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2006}, volume={74}, pages={106008} }

We analyze mesons at finite temperature in a chiral, confining string dual. The temperature dependence of low-spin as well as high-spin meson masses is shown to exhibit a pattern familiar from the lattice. Furthermore, we find the dissociation temperature of mesons as a function of their spin, showing that at a fixed quark mass, mesons with larger spins dissociate at lower temperatures. The Goldstone bosons associated with chiral symmetry breaking are shown to disappear above the chiral…
