Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Non-relativistic holography for quantum critical systems

Presented by Larus Thorlacius, Nordita

2 March 2012 13:00 in CM221

We consider gravity duals for 2+1 dimensional quantum critical points
with anisotropic scaling, where physics at finite temperature and charge density
is described in terms of charged Lifshitz black branes in 3+1 dimensions.
We use a combination of numerics and exact solutions to study equilibrium
thermodynamics of a holographic system exhibiting Lifshitz scaling and present
a simple model for the out-of-equilibrium dynamics following a holographic quench in such systems.
