# On the moduli space of the cascading SU(M+p) ? SU(p) gauge theory

@article{Dymarsky2005OnTM, title={On the moduli space of the cascading SU(M+p) ? SU(p) gauge theory}, author={Anatoly Dymarsky and Igor R. Klebanov and Nathan Seiberg}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2005}, volume={2006}, pages={155-155} }

We carry out a thorough analysis of the moduli space of the cascading gauge theory found on p D3-branes and M wrapped D5-branes at the tip of the conifold. We find various mesonic branches of the moduli space whose string duals involve the warped deformed conifold with different numbers of mobile D3-branes. The branes that are not mobile form a BPS bound state at threshold. In the special case where p is divisible by M there also exists a one-dimensional baryonic branch whose family of… Expand
