Discussion of a recent paper by Adi Armoni on `Beyond the quenched/probe-brane approximation in lattice/holographic QCD'

We propose a method to improve the quenched approximation. The method,
based on the worldline formalism, takes into account effects of quark
loops. The idea is useful mostly for AdS/CFT (holographic) calculations.
To demonstrate the method we estimate screening (string breaking) effects
by a simple holographic calculation.
