Open Spinning Strings

Stefanski, B. (2004). Open Spinning Strings. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2004(03), article number 057. doi: 10.1088/1126-6708/2004/03/057


We find classical open string solutions in the $AdS_5\times S^5/\Zop_2$ orientifold with angular momenta along the five-sphere. The energy of these solutions has an expansion in integral powers of $\lambda$ with sigma-model corrections suppressed by inverse powers of $J$ - the total angular momentum. This gives a prediction for the exact anomalous dimensions of operators in the large $N$ limit of an ${\cal N}=2$ $Sp(N)$ Super-Yang-Mills theory with matter. We also find a simple map between open and closed string solutions. This gives a prediction for an all-loop planar relationship between the anomalous dimensions of single-trace and two-quark operators in the dual gauge theory.
