Description

I will start by an introduction to holographic QCD, concentrating on bottom-up models where the backreaction of quarks to gluon dynamics is fully included (V-QCD models). The physics of theta angle and axial anomaly can be consistently included in such models. At small quark mass the models agree with effective field theory. I show how the Gell-Mann-Oakes-Renner relation for the mass of the pion and the Witten-Veneziano relation for the mass of the eta prime meson arise.
