# Potentials for soft-wall AdS/QCD

@article{Kapusta2010PotentialsFS, title={Potentials for soft-wall AdS/QCD}, author={Joseph I. Kapusta and Todd Springer}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2010}, volume={81}, pages={086009} }

Soft-wall models in AdS/QCD generally have dilaton and scalar fields that vary with the fifth-dimension coordinate. These fields can be parametrized to yield hadron mass spectra with linear radial trajectories and to incorporate spontaneous breaking of chiral symmetry. We show how to construct scalar potentials which lead to such solutions.
