# Operator product expansion of higher rank Wilson loops from D-branes and matrix models

@article{Giombi2006OperatorPE, title={Operator product expansion of higher rank Wilson loops from D-branes and matrix models}, author={Simone Giombi and Riccardo Ricci and Diego Trancanelli}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2006} }

In this paper we study correlation functions of circular Wilson loops in higher dimensional representations with chiral primary operators of N=4 super Yang-Mills theory. This is done using the recently established relation between higher rank Wilson loops in gauge theory and D-branes with electric fluxes in supergravity. We verify our results with a matrix model computation, finding perfect agreement in both the symmetric and the antisymmetric case.
