Gauge invariant perturbation theory and non-critical string models of Yang-Mills theories

We carry out a gauge invariant analysis of certain perturbations of D − 2-branes solutions of low energy string theories. We get generically a system of second order coupled differential equations,

Non critical holographic models of the thermal phases of QCD

We analyze the thermal phases of a non critical holographic model of QCD. The model is based on a six dimensional background of Nc non extremal D4 branes wrapping a spacial circle of radius R and the



D-branes in non-critical superstrings and duality in Script N = 1 gauge theories with flavor

We study D-branes in the superstring background IR 3,1 × SL(2,IR)k=1/U(1) which are extended in the cigar direction. Some of these branes are new. The branes realize flavor in the four dimensional N

Non-critical supergravity (d > 1) and holography

In this paper we investigate the supergravity equations of motion associated with non-critical (d > 1) type-II string theories that incorporate RR forms. Using a superpotential formalism we determine

D-branes and SQCD in non-critical superstring theory

Using exact boundary conformal field theory methods we analyze the D-brane physics of a specific four-dimensional non-critical superstring theory which involves the = 2 SL(2)/U(1) Kazama-Suzuki model

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,

An exact conformal field theory describing a black hole in two-dimensional space-time is found as an SL(2,{ital openR})/U(1) gauged Wess-Zumino-Witten model, which should be regarded as an analog of the extreme Reissner-Nordstroem black hole of four-dimensional general relativity.

Non-critical, near extremal AdS_6 background as a holographic laboratory of four dimensional YM theory

We study certain properties of the low energy regime of a theory which resembles four dimensional YM theory in the framework of a non-critical holographic gravity dual. We use for the latter the near
