Strongly coupled systems at finite temperature and chemical potential - holographic applications of black-hole physics

Carlo Ewerz and Paul Wittmer (Heidelberg University & ExtreMe Matter Institute EMMI, GSI)

Our talk will give an introduction to holography (also known as gauge/gravity duality). This method relates the physics of strongly coupled quantum systems to the physics of black holes on curved higher-dimensional spaces. We present applications to the physics of heavy quarks in the quark-gluon plasma at finite temperature and chemical potential, among them the static potential and the coupling strength. We also briefly present applications of holographic methods to turbulent dynamics in superfluids.

This talk will be live-streamed via Vidyo (but not recorded!) under
