We study Nf D6-brane probes in the supergravity background dual to Nc D4branes compactified on a circle with supersymmetry-breaking boundary conditions. In the limit in which the resulting Kaluza–Klein modes decouple, the gauge theory reduces to nonsupersymmetric, four-dimensional QCD with Nc colours and Nf ≪ Nc flavours. As expected, this decoupling is not fully realised within the supergravity/Born–Infeld approximation. For Nf = 1 and massless quarks, mq = 0, we exhibit spontaneous chiral… CONTINUE READING
