Energy loss of a heavy quark moving through Script N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills plasma

We use the AdS/CFT correspondence to determine the rate of energy loss of a heavy quark moving through = 4 SU(Nc) supersymmetric Yang-Mills plasma at large 't Hooft coupling. Using the dual… Expand

QCD and instantons at finite temperature

- D. Gross, R. Pisarski, L. Yaffe
- Physics
- 1981

The current understanding of the behavior of quantum chromodynamics at finite temperature is presented. Perturbative methods are used to explore the high-temperature dynamics. At sufficiently high… Expand

A bstractA variety of gravitational dynamics problems in asymptotically anti-de Sitter (AdS) spacetime are amenable to efficient numerical solution using a common approach involving a null slicing of… Expand

Transport coefficients in high temperature gauge theories (I): leading-log results

Leading-log results are derived for the shear viscosity, electrical conductivity and flavor diffusion constants in both abelian and non-abelian high temperature gauge theories with various matter… Expand

Instability of flat space at finite temperature

The instabilities of quantum gravity are investigated using the path-integral formulation of Einstein's theory. A brief review is given of the classical gravitational instabilities, as well as the… Expand

Center-stabilized Yang-Mills theory: Confinement and large N volume independence

We examine a double trace deformation of SU(N) Yang-Mills theory which, for large N and large volume, is equivalent to unmodified Yang-Mills theory up to O(1/N{sup 2}) corrections. In contrast to the… Expand

Photon and dilepton production in supersymmetric Yang-Mills plasma

- Physics
- 28 July 2006

By weakly gauging one of the U(1) subgroups of the R-symmetry group, = 4 super-Yang-Mills theory can be coupled to electromagnetism, thus allowing a computation of photon production and related… Expand

Effective kinetic theory for high temperature gauge theories

Quasiparticle dynamics in relativistic plasmas associated with hot, weakly-coupled gauge theories (such as QCD at asymptotically high temperature T) can be described by an effective kinetic theory,… Expand

Holography and Colliding gravitational shock waves in asymptotically AdS5 spacetime.

- P. Chesler, L. Yaffe
- PhysicsPhysical review letters
- 16 November 2010

Using holography, we study the collision of planar shock waves in strongly coupled N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory. This requires the numerical solution of a dual gravitational initial value… Expand
