Abstract

We study the low energy dynamics of pions in a gravity dual of chiral symmetry breaking. The string theory construction consists of a probe D7 brane in the Constable-Myers nonsupersymmetric background, which has been shown to describe chiral symmetry breaking in the pattern of QCD. We expand the D7 brane's Dirac-Born-Infeld action for fluctuations that correspond to the Goldstone mode and show that they take the form of a nonlinear chiral Lagrangian. We numerically compute the quark condensate, pion decay constant, and higher order Gasser-Leutwyler coefficients. We find their form is consistent with naive dimensional analysis estimates. We also explore the gauging of the quark's chiral symmetries and the vector meson spectrum.
