We show how the worldvolume realization of the Hanany-Witten effect for a supersymmetric D5-brane in a D3 background also provides a classical realization of the `s-rule' exclusion principle. Despite the supersymmetry, the force on the D5-brane vanishes only in the D5 `ground state', which is shown to interpolate between 6-dimensional Minkowski space and an OSp(4*|4)-invariant AdS2 × S4 geometry. The M-theory analogue of these results is briefly discussed.

Holographic Wilson loops

We show that all half-BPS Wilson loop operators in = 4 SYM – which are labeled by Young tableaus – have a gravitational dual description in terms of D5-branes or alternatively in terms of D3-branes

Gauge-string duality has provided a powerful framework for the study of strongly coupled gauge theories and non-perturbative string models. This thesis analyzes the holographic description of

String creation, D-branes and effective field theory

This paper addresses several unsettled issues associated with string creation in systems of orthogonal Dp-D(8−p) branes. The interaction between the branes can be understood either from the closed

Two universal results for wilson loops at strong coupling

We present results for Wilson loops in strongly coupled gauge theories. The loops may be taken around an arbitrarily shaped contour and in any field theory with a dual IIB geometry of the form

Multiply wound Polyakov loops at strong coupling

We study the expectation value of a Polyakov-Maldacena loop that wraps the thermal circle k times in strongly coupled N = 4 super Yang-Mills theory. This is achieved by considering probe D3 and D5

Type IIB 2-form fields and gauge coupling constant of 4D ${\cal N}=2$ super QCD

Abstract.We study the relation between the Type IIB (NSNS and RR) 2-form fields and the (complex) gauge coupling constant of the 4D ${\cal N}=2$SU(Nc) super Yang-Mills theory with Nf fundamental



BPS solutions of a D5-brane worldvolume in a D3-brane background from superalgebras

The BPS method is used to find BPS solutions of the worldvolume theory of a D5-brane in the near horizon geometry of a D3-brane. The BPS bound is interpreted in terms of the `maximally extended' D5

A classical manifestation of the Pauli exclusion principle

The occupied and unoccupied fermionic BPS quantum states of a type-IIA string stretched between a D6-brane and an orthogonal D2-brane are described in M-theory by two particular holomorphic curves

Baryons and branes in anti de Sitter space

In the mapping from four-dimensional gauge theories to string theory in AdS space, many features of gauge theory can be described by branes wrapped in different ways on S5, RP5, or subspaces

Supersymmetric baryonic branes

We derive an energy bound for a `baryonic' D5-brane probe in the AdS5 ? S5 background near the horizon of N D3-branes. Configurations saturating the bound are shown to be 1/4 supersymmetric
