Holographic study of gauge symmetry breaking in curved spacetime

This paper examines the Abelian Higgs model in a warped extra dimension called anti-de Sitter space. The gauge symmetry is spontaneously broken by a Higgs field vacuum expectation value localized on a boundary brane. The paper investigates features like the gauge boson spectrum, Goldstone equivalence theorems, and properties of the holographic conformal field theory dual.
