Generalized quark-antiquark potential in AdS/CFT

Forini, V. ORCID: 0000-0001-9726-1423 & Drukker, N. (2012). Generalized quark-antiquark potential in AdS/CFT. Fortschritte der Physik - Progress of Physics, 60(9-10), pp. 1019-1025. doi: 10.1002/prop.201200022


In this talk we present a family of Wilson loop operators which continuously interpolates between the 1/2 BPS line and the antiparallel lines, and can be thought of as calculating a generalization of the quark–antiquark potential for the gauge theory on S3 × R. We evaluate the first two orders of these loops perturbatively both in the gauge and string theory. We obtain analytical expressions in a systematic expansion around the 1/2 BPS configuration, and comment on possible all‐loop patterns for these Wilson loops.
