Energy Loss of Gluons, Baryons and k-Quarks in an N=4 SYM Plasma

Preprint English OPEN
Chernicoff, Mariano; Guijosa, Alberto;

We consider different types of external color sources that move through a strongly-coupled thermal N=4 super-Yang-Mills plasma, and calculate, via the AdS/CFT correspondence, the dissipative force (or equivalently, the rate of energy loss) they experience. A bound state... View more
