Separation of Spontaneous Chiral Symmetry Breaking and Confinement via AdS / CFT Correspondence

We analyze, in the framework of AdS/CFT correspondence, the gauge theory phase structure that are supposed to be dual to the recently found non-supersymmetric dilatonic deformations to AdS 5 × S 5 in type IIB string theory. Analyzing the probe D7-brane dynamics in the backgrounds of our interest, which corresponds to the fundamental N = 2 hypermultiplet, we… (More)
