We use the AdS/CFT correspondence to determine the rate of energy loss of a heavy quark moving through N = 4 SU(Nc) supersymmetric Yang-Mills plasma at large â€™t Hooft coupling. Using the dualâ€¦ (More)

The phase diagram of large Nc, weakly-coupled N =4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory on a three-sphere with non-zero chemical potentials is examined. In the zero coupling limit, a transition line inâ€¦ (More)

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, thisâ€¦ (More)

By weakly gauging one of the U(1) subgroups of the R-symmetry group, N = 4 super-YangMills theory can be coupled to electromagnetism, thus allowing a computation of photon production and relatedâ€¦ (More)

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 valueâ€¦ (More)

The energy density wake produced by a heavy quark moving through a strongly coupled N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills plasma is computed using gauge-string duality.

It has been argued that the bosonic sectors of supersymmetric SU(N) YangMills theory, and of QCD with a single fermion in the antisymmetric (or symmetric) tensor representation, are equivalent in theâ€¦ (More)

Many aspects of high-temperature gauge theories, such as the electroweak baryon number violation rate, color conductivity, and the hard gluon damping rate, have previously been understood only atâ€¦ (More)

Transport coefficients, such as viscosities, diffusivities, or conductivity, characterize the dynamics of long wavelength, low frequency fluctuations in a medium. In condensed matter applicationsâ€¦ (More)
