Abstract
We construct the worldvolume action of a probe D3brane in AdS_5×S^5 with
N units of flux. It has the field content, symmetries, and dualities of the U(1)
factor of N = 4 U(N + 1) super Yang–Mills theory, spontaneously broken to
U(N)×U(1) by being on the Coulomb branch, with the massive fields integrated
out. This motivates the conjecture that it is the exact effective action, called a
highly effective action (HEA). We construct an SL(2,ℤ) multiplet of BPS soliton
solutions of the D3brane theory (the conjectured HEA) and show that they
reproduce the electrically charged massive states that have been integrated out
as well as magnetic monopoles and dyons. Their charges are uniformly spread
on a spherical surface, called a soliton bubble, which is interpreted as a phase
boundary.
