A bstractCorrelators of gauge invariant operators provide useful information on the dynamics, phases and spectra of a quantum field theory. In this paper, we consider four dimensional $ \mathcal{N} $ = 1 supersymmetric theories and focus our attention on the supercurrent multiplet. We give a complete characterization of two-point functions of operators belonging to such multiplet, like the energy-momentum tensor and the supercurrent, and study the relations between them. We discuss instances of… 

Analytic pseudo-Goldstone bosons

A bstractWe consider the interplay between explicit and spontaneous symmetry breaking in strongly coupled field theories. Some well-known statements, such as the Gell-Mann-Oakes-Renner relation,

A goldstino at the bottom of the cascade

A bstractWorking within a five-dimensional consistent truncation of type IIB super-gravity dimensionally reduced on T1,1, we consider supersymmetry breaking solutions with the asymptotics of the

Anatomy of new SUSY breaking holographic RG flows

A bstractWe find and thoroughly study new supergravity domain wall solutions which are holographic realizations of supersymmetry breaking strongly coupled gauge theories. We set ourselves in an N$$

Applications of Holography

This thesis consists of four parts. In the first part of the thesis, we investigate the phase structure of Einstein-Maxwell-Scalar system with a negative cosmological constant. We chart out the full

Conformal symmetry breaking in holographic QCD

In this paper, we investigate a simple holographic model which describes the conformal symmetry breaking at zero temperature. The model is implemented in the context of effective holographic models

On spontaneous breaking of conformal symmetry by probe flavour D-branes

A bstractWe explore the possibilities of breaking conformal symmetry spontaneously by introducing flavour branes into conformal holographic backgrounds in the probe limit. A prototype model of such a

A Note on Holographic Non-Relativistic Goldstone Bosons

We consider a holographic set-up where relativistic invariance is broken by a chemical potential, and a non-abelian internal symmetry is broken spontaneously. We use the tool of holographic

Holographic R-symmetric flows and the τU conjecture

A bstractWe discuss the holographic counterpart of a recent conjecture regarding R-symmetric RG flows in four-dimensional supersymmetric field theories. In such theories, a quantity τU can be defined

We construct general asymptotically Klebanov-Strassler solutions of a five dimensional SU(2) × SU(2) × ℤ2 × ℤ2R truncation of IIB supergravity on T1,1, that break supersymmetry. This generalizes



Holographic correlators for general gauge mediation

A bstractWe use holographic techniques to compute two-point functions of operators belonging to a conserved current supermultiplet in theories which break supersymmetry at strong coupling. These are

Comments on supercurrent multiplets, supersymmetric field theories and supergravity

We analyze various supersymmetry multiplets containing the supercurrent and the energy-momentum tensor. The most widely known such multiplet, the Ferrara-Zumino (FZ) multiplet, is not always

N=1 Superconformal Symmetry in Four-Dimensional Quantum Field Theory

The implications of N=1 superconformal symmetry for four dimensional quantum field theories are studied. Superconformal covariant expressions for two- and three-point functions of quasi-primary

Hypermultiplets, domain walls and supersymmetric attractors

We establish general properties of supersymmetric flow equations and of the superpotential of five-dimensional N=2 gauged supergravity coupled to vector multiplets and hypermultiplets. We provide

Renormalization group flows from holography supersymmetry and a c theorem

We obtain first order equations that determine a supersymmetric kink solution in fivedimensional N = 8 gauged supergravity. The kink interpolates between an exterior anti-de Sitter region with

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

Gravity dual of metastable dynamical supersymmetry breaking

Metastable, supersymmetry-breaking configurations can be created in flux geometries by placing antibranes in warped throats. Via gauge/gravity duality, such configurations should have an
