Holographic confinement of the solitary quark


  • Prof. Saulo DILES

Primary authors


We will discuss confinement in a holographic perspective. We consider one isolated quark propagating in the vacuum of the gauge theory, the dual picture is an open string attached at the conformal boundary and extending in the holographic direction. We show that there will be a drag force breaking the quark only if the dual gauge theory is confining.
