    starting something. Not done yet but need to save

    added more references, more subsections of applications. Still stubby, though

    one distinguishes bottom-up model building … from bottom-up model building

    The former should be ’top-down’?

    Presumably ’yes’, so have changed.

    added a little more on the Witten-Sakai-Sugimoto model for strongly coupled QCD (here), in particular made explicit it relation to the 6d (2,0)(2,0)-SCFT.

    (but the entry it still not more a glorified pointer to the literature)

    David, thanks for fixing, I see this only now.

    expanded the section on the Sakai-Sugimoto model (here), adding pointers to hadrons via bulk bound states and to comparison of the resulting hadron masses to experiment

    added this pointer:


    The extreme form of bottom-up holographic model building is explored in

    where an appropriate bulk geometry is computer-generated from specified boundary behaviour.

    started a further subsection on Type0/YM correspondence:


    Instead of starting with M5-branes in locally supersymmetric M-theory and then spontaneously breaking all supersymmetry by suitable KK-compactification as in the Witten-Sakai-Sugimoto model, one may start with a non-supersymmetric bulk string theory in the first place.

    In this vein, it has been argued in GLMR 00 that there is holographic duality between type 0 string theory and non-supersymmetric 4d Yang-Mills theory (hence potentially something close to QCD).
