New Supergravity Backgrounds Dual to N = 1 SQCD-like Theories with N f = 2 N c


We present new supergravity backgrounds generated by Nc D5-branes, wrapping the S 2 of the resolved conifold, in the presence of Nf = 2Nc smeared flavor D5-branes. The smearing allows us to take their backreaction on the geometry into account. We discuss the consistency, stability, and supersymmetry of these types of setups. We find near horizon geometries… (More)
