Title: ABJM Baryon Stability and Myers effect

Abstract: We consider magnetically charged baryon vertex like configurations in AdS^4
X CP^3 with a reduced number of quarks l. We show that these configurations
are solutions to the classical equations of motion and are stable beyond a
critical value of l. Given that the magnetic flux dissolves D0-brane charge
it is possible to give a microscopical description in terms of D0-branes
expanding into fuzzy CP^n spaces by Myers dielectric effect. Using this
description we are able to explore the region of finite 't Hooft coupling.
Finally, we extend our baryon construction to AdS^5 X T11 geometry and we
also give a microscopical description in terms of D1-branes expanding into
fuzzy T11.
