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 nonsinglet 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 nonsinglet states have higher energy at strong coupling and are therefore dynamically suppressed.

Figure 1: Sketch of the gravity solution at finite temperature. The shaded region near the boundary is highly curved. 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 nonsinglet excitations live purely in themore »
