# Nucleon-Nucleon Potential from Holography

@article{Kim2008NucleonNucleonPF, title={Nucleon-Nucleon Potential from Holography}, author={Keun-Young Kim and Ismail Zahed}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2008} }

In the holographic model of QCD, baryons are chiral solitons sourced by D4 flavor instantons in bulk of size 1/\sqrt{\lambda} with \lambda=g^2*N_c. Using the ADHM construction we explicit the exact two-instanton solution in bulk. We use it to construct the core NN potential to order N_c/\lambda. The core sources meson fields to order \sqrt{N_c/\lambda} which are shown to contribute to the NN interaction to order N_c/\lambda. In holographic QCD, the NN interaction splits into a small core and a…
