A bstractWe compute leading order quantum corrections to the Regge trajectory of a rotating string with massive endpoints using semiclassical methods. We expand the bosonic string action around a classical rotating solution to quadratic order in the fluctuations and perform the canonical quantization of the resulting theory. For a rotating string in D dimensions the intercept receives contributions from D − 3 transverse modes and one mode in the plane of rotation, in addition to a contribution… 
On the quantization of folded strings in non-critical dimensions
Classical rotating closed string are folded strings. At the folding points the scalar curvature associated with the induced metric diverges. As a consequence one cannot properly quantize the
The scattering amplitude of stringy hadrons: strings with opposite charges on their endpoints
In this note we describe hadrons: mesons and baryons as strings with electric charges on their endpoints. We consider here only the neutral system with opposite charges coupled to an external
3D Yang-Mills glueballs vs closed effective strings
Abstract Recent lattice results strongly support the Axionic String Ansatz (ASA) for quantum numbers of glueballs in 3D Yang-Mills theory. The ASA treats glueballs as closed bosonic strings. The

On the exponentially small corrections to ${\cal N} = 2$ superconformal correlators at large R-charge
In this note we consider Coulomb-branch chiral primary correlation functions in N = 2 superconformal QCD with gauge group SU(2), in the limit of large R-charge J = 2n for the chiral primary operators
A simple worldsheet black hole
A bstractWe study worldsheet theory of confining strings in two-dimensional massive adjoint QCD. Similarly to confining strings in higher dimensions this theory exhibits a non-trivial S-matrix
Stringy excited baryons in holographic quantum chromodynamics
We analyze excited baryon states using a holographic dual of quantum chromodynamics that is defined on the basis of an intersecting D4/D8-brane system. Studies of baryons in this model have been
Observables in inhomogeneous ground states at large global charge
As a sequel to previous work, we extend the study of the ground state configuration of the D = 3, Wilson-Fisher conformal O(4) model. In this work, we prove that for generic ratios of two charge
A note on inhomogeneous ground states at large global charge
Abstract In this note we search for the ground state of the D = 3 Wilson-Fisher conformal O(4) model, at nonzero values of the two independent charge densities ρ 1,2, on the torus spatial slice.
Excited mesons, baryons, glueballs and tetraquarks: predictions of the Holography Inspired Stringy Hadron model
In this note we collect and summarize the predictions of the Holography Inspired Stringy Hadron (HISH) model. Following a brief review of the model, we list the masses and widths of predicted excited


String theory of the Regge intercept.
Using the Polchinski-Strominger effective string theory in the covariant gauge, we compute the mass of a rotating string in D dimensions with large angular momenta J, in one or two planes, in fixed
Semiclassical quantization of effective string theory and Regge trajectories
We begin with an effective string theory for long distance QCD, and evaluate the semiclassical expansion of this theory about a classical rotating string solution, taking into account the dynamics of
Boundary operators in effective string theory
A bstractVarious universal features of relativistic rotating strings depend on the organization of allowed local operators on the worldsheet. In this paper, we study the set of Neumann boundary

Rotating strings confronting PDG mesons
A bstractWe revisit the model of mesons as rotating strings with massive endpoints and confront it with meson spectra. We look at Regge trajectories both in the (J, M2) and (n, M2) planes, where J
A rotating string model versus baryon spectra
A bstractWe continue our program of describing hadrons as rotating strings with massive endpoints. In this paper we propose models of baryons and confront them with the baryon Regge trajectories. We

A bstractThe low-energy effective action on long string-like objects in quantum field theory, such as confining strings, includes the Nambu-Goto action and then higher-derivative corrections. This
Semiclassical quantization of rotating superstring in AdS(5) x S**5
Motivated by recent proposals in hep-th/0202021 and hep-th/0204051 we develop semiclassical quantization of superstring in AdS5 × S5. We start with a classical solution describing string rotating in
On the effective theory of long open strings
We study the general low-energy effective action on long open strings, such as confining strings in pure gauge theories. Using Lorentz invariance, we find that for a string of length R, the leading
