Discussion of a recent paper by Paul Chestler and Laurence G. Yaffe, entitled `Horizon formation and far-from-equilibrium isotropization in supersymmetric Yang-Mills plasma'

Using gauge/gravity duality, we study the creation and evolution of anisotropic, homogeneous strongly coupled N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills plasma. In the dual gravitational description, this corresponds to horizon formation in a geometry driven to be anisotropic by a time-dependent change in boundary conditions.
