  • SUSY embedding: no brane bendingbare mass = constituent mass Goldstone modes: symmetry breaking may require massless modesHolographic meson scale: SUSY versus nonSUSY:bare mass constituent massnonSUSY embedding: brane bends(eg, Sakai & Sugimoto model)Holographic meson scale set by constituent mass!

  • Conclusions/future directions: holographic meson spectra have universal features: discrete, deeply bound, mass gap mass scale dictated by holography meson interactions: scale as in large N

  • Meson interactions:Continue expansion of D7-brane action beyond 2nd order substitute and integrate out r and S34th order:agrees with standard large N of course, for fixed :glueballsmesons Applies for generalholographic theory

  • Hong, Yoon & Strassler (hep-th/0312071) Form factors in D3/D7: exam mesons with various external probes:where charge radius given by Mgapin particular, does NOT scale with quantum numbers (surprise since ) similar results should apply in general holographic theory (since Mgap sets scale of radial profile in all cases)

  • Degeneracies in meson spectra: for D3 background/conformal gauge theory with D7/D5/D3 probe branes, spectra only depend on = radial AdS quantum #= angular quantum # on S3 = R-chargee.g., NOT true for nonconformal backgrounds: grows
