Title: To gauge or not to gauge?

Abstract

The D0 brane, or BFSS, matrix model is a quantum mechanical theory with an interesting gravity dual. We consider a variant of this model where we treat the SU(N) symmetry as a global symmetry, rather than as a gauge symmetry. This variant contains new non-singlet states. We consider the impact of these new states on its gravity dual. We argue that the gravity dual is essentially the same as the one for the original matrix model. The non-singlet states have higher energy at strong coupling and are therefore dynamically suppressed.

Moving further inwards we fi nd a region of lower curvature that can be described by Einstein gravity. We will argue that the lowerst energy non-singlet excitations live purely in themore » shaded region and have an energy that roughly corresponds to that of a massive string state located in the interface between the two.« less
