We compute the meson spectrum of an N = 2 super Yang-Mills theory with fundamental matter from its dual string theory on AdS5 × S5 with a D7-brane probe [1]. For scalar and vector mesons with arbitrary R-charge the spectrum is computed in closed form by solving the equations for D7-brane fluctuations; for matter with non-zero mass mq it is discrete, exhibits a mass gap of order mq/ √ gsN and furnishes representations of SO(5) even though the manifest global symmetry of the theory is only SO(4… CONTINUE READING

Figure 2: Solution for small angular velocity (J ≫ √gsN). Again, the dashed line represents the continuation of the solution beyond the D7-brane. Note that although in coordinates (ρ̃, z̃) the string is small it actually is very large in the physical coordinates (ρ, z).
