Towards a Perfect QCD Gravity Dual

  title={Towards a Perfect QCD Gravity Dual},
  author={Jonathan P. Shock and Tom Waterson},
Many examples of gravitational duals exist of theories that are highly supersymmetric and conformal in the UV yet have the same massless states as N = 2, 1, 0 QCD. We discuss such theories with an explicit UV cutoff and propose that, by tuning higher dimension operators at the cutoff by hand, the effects of the extra matter states in the UV may be removed from the IR physics. We explicitly work in the AdS-Schwarzschild description of QCD4 and tune the operator TrF 4 by relaxing the near horizon… CONTINUE READING
