QCD-like gauge dynamics from gravity duals

Evans, N. (2004) QCD-like gauge dynamics from gravity duals Fortschritte der Physik, 52, (6/7), pp. 497-502. (doi:10.1002/prop.200310136).

Record type: Article


We describe attempts to study QCD-like gauge dynamics using a deformed version of the AdS/CFT Correspondence. The Yang Mills* geometry is dual to a gauge theory that is non-supersymmetric Yang Mills in the infra-red but reverts to N = 4 super Yang Mills in the ultra-violet. The geometry describes a discrete, calculable glueball spectrum with a mass gap. Wilson loops in the geometry display QCD string breaking.
