# Holography and unquenched quark-gluon plasmas

@article{Bertoldi2007HolographyAU, title={Holography and unquenched quark-gluon plasmas}, author={Gaetano Bertoldi and Francesco Bigazzi and Aldo L. Cotrone and Jos{\'e} D. Edelstein}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2007}, volume={76}, pages={065007} }

We employ the string/gauge theory correspondence to study properties of strongly coupled quark-gluon plasmas in thermal gauge theories with a large number of colors and flavors. In particular, we analyze noncritical string duals of conformal (S)QCD, as well as ten-dimensional wrapped fivebrane duals of SQCD-like theories. We study general properties of the dual plasmas, including the drag force exerted on a probe quark and the jet quenching parameter. We find that these plasma observables…
