Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Strange Metal Transport and Holographic Models

Presented by Mike Blake, Cambridge

13 February 2015 13:00 in CM221

In this talk we study the transport properties of holographic theories in which translational invariance is broken by a lattice. In particular, we show that generic holographic theories will display a different temperature dependence in the Hall angle as to the DC conductivity. Our results suggest a general mechanism for obtaining an anomalous scaling of the Hall angle through deformations of a charge-conjugation symmetric theory.
