    In a wide class of holographic models described by the Yang-Mills and Chern-Simons terms, we derive all the O(p6){\cal O}(p^6) Chiral Perturbation Theory low-energy constants. Various model-independent relations exist among the constants up to this order, generalizing the previously found relations at p4p^4 order. Some of them can be extended to relations between different amplitudes.Comment: 6 pages, contribution to the poster section of QCD@Work 2012 --International Workshop on QCD: Theory and Experiment--, 18-21 June 2012, Lecce (Italy

    Thermal power terms in the Einstein-dilaton system

    Full text link
    We employ the gauge/string duality to study the thermal power terms of various thermodynamic quantities in gauge theories and the renormalized Polyakov loop above the deconfinement phase transition. We restrict ourselves to the five-dimensional Einstein gravity coupled to a single scalar, the dilaton. The asymptotic solutions of the system for a general dilaton potential are employed to study the power contributions of various quantities. If the dilaton is dual to the dimension-4 operator TrFμν2{\rm Tr} F_{\mu\nu}^2, no power corrections would be generated. Then the thermal quantities approach their asymptotic values much more quickly than those observed in lattice simulation. When the dimension of the dual operator is different from 4, various power terms are generated. The lowest power contributions to the thermal quantities are always quadratic in the dilaton, while that of the Polyakov loop is linear. As a result, the quadratic terms in inverse temperature for both the trace anomaly and the Polyakov loop, observed in lattice simulation, cannot be implemented consistently in the system. This is in accordance with the field theory expectation, where no gauge-invariant operator can accommodate such contributions. Two simple models, where the dilaton is dual to operators with different dimensions, are studied in detail to clarify the conclusion.Comment: 25 pages, 5 figure

    Holography, chiral Lagrangian and form factor relations

    Full text link
    We perform a detailed study of mesonic properties in a class of holographic models of QCD, which is described by the Yang-Mills plus Chern-Simons action. By decomposing the 5 dimensional gauge field into resonances and integrating out the massive ones, we reproduce the Chiral Perturbative Theory Lagrangian up to O(p6){\cal O}(p^6) and obtain all the relevant low energy constants (LECs). The numerical predictions of the LECs show minor model dependence, and agree reasonably with the determinations from other approaches. Interestingly, various model-independent relations appear among them. Some of these relations are found to be the large-distance limits of universal relations between form factors of the anomalous and even-parity sectors of QCD.Comment: Typo corrected; 8 pages, 1 figure; Proceedings of the Xth Quark Confinement and the Hadron Spectrum, October 8-12, 2012, TUM Campus Garching, Munich, German
