A bstractWe consider the interplay between explicit and spontaneous symmetry breaking in strongly coupled field theories. Some well-known statements, such as the Gell-Mann-Oakes-Renner relation, descend directly from the Ward identities and have thus a general relevance. Such Ward identities are recovered in gauge/gravity dual setups through holographic renormalization. In a simple paradigmatic three dimensional toy-model, we find analytic expressions for the two-point correlators which match…

It is shown that the presence of the lattice induces an effective mass for the graviton via a gravitational version of the Higgs mechanism, which leads to a power law resistivity that is in agreement with an earlier field theory analysis of Hartnoll and Hofman.
