QCD and a Holographic Model of Hadrons
Department of Physics

I shall describe a bottom-up approach to constructing a higher-dimensional theory holographically dual to QCD. Hadronic models built in this way simultaneously satisfy chiral symmetry constraints together with QCD sum rules and can be constrained by matching asymptotic behavior of QCD correlation functions. The simplest model of this type gives a remarkably good fit to low energy hadronic observables.
