Wilson loops stability in the gauge/string correspondence

We study the stability of some classical string worldsheet solutions employed for computing the potential energy between two static fundamental quarks in confining and non-confining gravity duals. We

Robustness and Infrared Sensitivity of Various Observables in the Application of AdS/CFT to Heavy Ion Collisions

We investigate the robustness with respect to the introduction of nonconformality of five properties of strongly coupled plasmas that have been calculated in = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills (SYM)

Stability issues with baryons in AdS/CFT

We consider baryon vertices within the gauge/gravity correspondence for a class of curved backgrounds. The holographic description based on the = 4 SYM theory for SU(N) allows classical solutions

Acceleration, energy loss and screening in strongly-coupled gauge theories

We explore various aspects of the motion of heavy quarks in strongly-coupled gauge theories, employing the AdS/CFT correspondence. Building on earlier work by Mikhailov, we study the dispersion

Holographic flavor in = 4 gauge theories in 3d from wrapped branes

We study the addition of flavor to the gravity dual of = 4 three-dimensional gauge theories obtained by wrapping Nc D4-branes on a two-cycle of a non-compact Calabi-Yau two-fold. In this setup the

Velocity Dependence of Baryon Screening in a Hot Strongly Coupled Plasma

The L-dependence of the static potential between Nc quarks arranged in a circle of radius L (a "baryon") immersed in the hot plasma of a gauge theory with Nc colors defines a screening length Ls. We



Gauge-string duality for superconformal deformations of N=4 super Yang-Mills theory

We analyze in detail the relation between an exactly marginal deformation of N=4 SYM - the Leigh-Strassler or ``beta-deformation'' - and its string theory dual (recently constructed in

What does the string/gauge correspondence teach us about Wilson loops?

In these lectures we describe the attempt to extract the expectation values of Wilson loops from the string/gauge correspondence. We start with the original calculation in $AdS_5$. It is then

Dynamics of flux tubes in large N gauge theories

The gluonic field created by a static quark anti-quark pair is described via the AdS/CFT correspondence by a string connecting the pair which is located on the boundary of AdS. Thus the gluonic field

Wilson loops from multicentre and rotating branes, mass gaps and phase structure in gauge theories

Within the AdS/CFT correspondence we use multicentre D3-brane metrics to investigate Wilson loops and compute the associated heavy quark–antiquark potentials for the strongly coupled SU(N)

Symmetric potentials of gauged supergravities in diverse dimensions and Coulomb branch of gauge theories

A class of conformally flat and asymptotically anti--de Sitter geometries involving profiles of scalar fields is studied from the point of view of gauged supergravity. The scalars involved in the

Branes for Higgs phases and exact conformal field theories

We consider multicenter supergravity solutions corresponding to Higgs phases of supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories with ZN symmetric vacua. In certain energy regimes, we find a description in terms

Rotating D3-branes and QCD in three-dimensions

We investigate the rotating D3-brane solution with maximum number of angular momentum parameters. After determining the angular velocities, Hawking temperature, ADM mass and entropy, we use this
