Holographic models for QCD in the Veneziano limit

by Matti Jarvinen (Heraklion U.)

Tuesday, 7 January 2014 from to (Europe/Zurich)
at CERN ( 4-3-006 - TH Conference Room )
I discuss holographic bottom-up models for QCD in the Veneziano limit
(large N_f and N_c with fixed x=N_f/N_c). After a brief introduction, I will go on discussing a specific class of models, named V-QCD.  The models are constructed by putting together holographic models of Yang-Mills theory with Sen-type tachyon actions, and by considering full backreaction. The resulting phase diagrams and mass spectra meet expectations from QCD at qualitative level.
