QCD and a holographic model of hadrons.

The framework is a holographic version of the QCD sum rules, motivated by the anti-de Sitter/conformal field theory correspondence, and naturally incorporates properties of QCD dictated by chiral symmetry.

Localized backreacted flavor branes in holographic QCD

We investigate the perturbative (in gsND8) backreaction of localized D8 branes in D4-D8 systems including in particular the Sakai Sugimoto model. We write down the explicit expressions of the

Fundamental matter, meson spectroscopy and non-critical string/gauge duality

We discuss the incorporation of quarks in the fundamental representation of the color group into the non-critical string/gauge duality. We focus on confining theories and address this question using

Instantons on D7 brane probes and AdS/CFT with flavour

Recent work on adding flavour to the generalized AdS/CFT correspondence is reviewed. In particular, we consider instanton configurations on two coincident D7 brane probes. These are matched to the

Open string modes at brane intersections

We study systematically the open string modes of a general class of BPS intersections of branes. We work in the approximation in which one of the branes is considered as a probe embedded in the

Scalar effective potential for D7 brane probes which break chiral symmetry

We consider D7 brane probes embedded in deformed AdS5 × S5 supergravity backgrounds which are non-supersymmetric in the interior. In the context of the generalised AdS/CFT correspondence, these



Holography and phenomenology

We examine various aspects of the conjectured duality between warped AdS5 geometries with boundary branes and strongly coupled (broken) conformal field theories coupled to dynamical gravity. We also

The Holographic Life of the η

In the string holographic dual of large-Nc QCD with Nf ∞avours of (1), the · 0 meson is massless at inflnite Nc and dual to a collective ∞uctuation of Nf D6-brane probes in a supergravity background.

Quantum field theory and unification in AdS5

We consider gauge bosons in the bulk of AdS5 in a two-brane theory that addresses the hierarchy problem. We demonstrate that one can do a perturbative calculation above the IR scale associated with

Chiral dynamics from AdS space

We study the low energy dynamics of pions in a gravity dual of chiral symmetry breaking. The string theory construction consists of a probe D7 brane in the Constable-Myers nonsupersymmetric

Chiral symmetry breaking and pions in nonsupersymmetric gauge / gravity duals

We study gravity duals of large N nonsupersymmetric gauge theories with matter in the fundamental representation by introducing a D7-brane probe into deformed AdS backgrounds. In particular, we

Adding flavor to AdS/CFT

Coupling fundamental quarks to QCD in the dual string representation corresponds to adding the open string sector. Flavors therefore should be represented by space‐time filling D‐branes in the dual

Anti-de Sitter space and holography

Recently, it has been proposed by Maldacena that large $N$ limits of certain conformal field theories in $d$ dimensions can be described in terms of supergravity (and string theory) on the product of

The Large-N Limit of Superconformal Field Theories and Supergravity

We show that the large-N limits of certainconformal field theories in various dimensions includein their Hilbert space a sector describing supergravityon the product of anti-de Sitter spacetimes,
