# Two Circular Wilson Loops and Marginal Deformations

@article{Ahn2006TwoCW, title={Two Circular Wilson Loops and Marginal Deformations}, author={Changhyun Ahn}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2006} }

We study type IIB supergravity backgrounds which are dual to marginal deformations of N = 4 super Yang-Mills theory. We re-examine two circular Wilson loops and describe how the phase transition occurs in the presence of deformation parameter.
