@article{Filev2009UniversalHC, title={Universal holographic chiral dynamics in an external magnetic field}, author={Veselin G. Filev and Clifford V. Johnson and Jonathan P. Shock}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2009}, volume={2009}, pages={013-013} }

In this work we further extend the investigation of holographic gauge theories in external magnetic fields, continuing earlier work. We study the phenomenon of magnetic catalysis of mass generation in 1+3 and 1+2 dimensions, using D3/D7- and D3/D5-brane systems, respectively. We obtain the low energy effective actions of the corresponding pseudo Goldstone bosons and study their dispersion relations. The D3/D7 system exhibits the usual Gell-Mann–Oakes–Renner (GMOR) relation and a relativistic…
