  • Black holes in anti-de Sitter (AdS) spacetime are known to be thermodynamically stable against radiation, unlike their asymptotically flat counterparts. Moreover, Hawking and Page discovered that they exhibit a first-order phase transition. This was reinterpreted by Witten using the AdS/CFT correspondence as a confinement/deconfinement transition in the quark-gluon plasma. Extending the gauge/gravity correspondence to the fluid/gravity correspondence, it was shown that there is an exact… CONTINUE READING
