The gravity dual of softly broken N=1 super Yang-Mills

Evans, Nick J., Petrini, Michela and Zaffaroni, Alberto (2002) The gravity dual of softly broken N=1 super Yang-Mills Journal of High Energy Physics, 6, (4), pp. 1-12. (doi:10.1088/1126-6708/2002/06/004).

Record type: Article


Starting from the Maldacena-Nunez supergravity dual of N= 1 super Yang-Mills theory we study the inclusion of a supersymmetry breaking gaugino mass term. We consider a class of non-supersymmetric deformations of the MN solutions which have been recently proposed in the literature.
We show that they can be interpreted as corresponding to the inclusion of both a mass and a condensate. We calculate the vacuum energy of the supergravity solutions showing that the Nc-fold vacuum degeneracy of the N= 1 theory is lifted by the inclusion of a mass term.
