Systematics of supersymmetric flows along the conifold

Wednesday 30th May 2012 - 12:15 to 13:00
Working in N=4 gauged supergravity, we analyze the conditions for five-dimensional supersymmetric domain walls, which correspond to holographic RG flows. Applying our results to a class of consistent truncations of string theory, we obtain a general flow for SCFT deformations, as well as a new flow closely related to the resolved conifold. We also discuss a superpotential for the baryonic branch of the Klebanov-Strassler solution.
