We study classical dynamics of a probe Dp-brane moving in a background sourced by a stack of Dp-branes. In this context the physics is similar to that of the effective action for open-string tachyon condensation, but with a power-law runaway potential. We show that small inhomogeneous ripples of the probe brane embedding grow with time, leading to folding… (More)

A brane-antibrane model for the entropy of neutral black branes is developed, following on from the work of Danielsson, Guijosa and Kruczenski [1]. The model involves equal numbers of Dp-branes and anti-Dp-branes, and arbitrary angular momenta, and covers the cases p = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4. The thermodynamic entropy is reproduced by the strongly coupled field… (More)

Kovtun, Son and Starinets have conjectured that the viscosity to entropy density ratio η/s is always bounded from below by a universal multiple of i.e., /(4πk B) for all forms of matter. Mysteriously, the proposed viscosity bound appears to be saturated in all computations done whenever a supergravity dual is available. We consider the near horizon limit of… (More)

In this paper we elaborate on the correspondence between the quantum Hall system with filling factor equal to one and the N = 4 SYM theory in the 1/2 BPS sector, previously mentioned in the [hep-th/0409174, 0409115]. We show the equivalence of the two in various formulations of the quantum Hall physics. We present an extension of the noncommutative… (More)

We discuss the calculation of the field theory stress tensor from the dual geometry for two recent proposals for gravity duals of non-relativistic confor-mal field theories. The first of these has a Schrödinger symmetry including Galilean boosts, while the second has just an anisotropic scale invariance (the Lifshitz case). For the Lifshitz case, we… (More)

We examine the behavior of the spectral function for the T µ µ operator in QCD in the two regimes where it is possible to make analytical progress; weak coupling, and close to a second order QCD phase transition. We determine the behavior of the bulk viscosity in each regime. We discuss the problem of analytic continuation of the (lattice) Euclidean… (More)

The cosmological perturbations on a bouncing brane are studied. The brane is moving inside a Klebanov-Strassler throat where the infra-red region of the geometry is smoothly cut off. For an observer confined to the world-volume of the brane, this results in a non-singular bouncing mirage cosmology. We have calculated the scalar perturbations corresponding… (More)

For generic field theories at finite temperature, a power-law falloff of correlation functions of conserved currents at long times is a prediction of non-linear hydrodynamics. We demonstrate, through a one-loop computation in Einstein gravity in Anti de Sitter space, that this effect is reproduced by the dynamics of black hole horizons. The result is in… (More)

Due to their structural simplicity and superior generalization capability, Extended Classifier Systems (XCSs) are gaining popularity within the Artificial Intelligence community. In this study an improved XCS with continuous actions is introduced for function approximation purposes. The proposed XCSF uses " prediction zones, " rather than distinct "… (More)
