Holographic superconductors have been studied so far in the absence of dynamical electromagnetic fields, namely in the limit in which they coincide with holographic superfluids. It is possible, however, to introduce dynamical gauge fields if a Neumann-type boundary condition is imposed on the AdS-boundary. In 3 + 1 dimensions, the dual theory is a 2 + 1 dimensional CFT whose spectrum contains a massless gauge field, signaling the emergence of a gauge symmetry. We study the impact of a dynamical… 
Dynamical gauge fields in holographic superconductors
Holographic superconductors have been studied so far in the absence of dynamical electromagnetic fields, namely in the limit in which they coincide with holographic superfluids. It is possible,
Holographic superfluids and superconductors in dilaton-gravity
A bstractWe investigate holographic models of superfluids and superconductors in which the gravitational theory includes a dilatonic field. Dilaton extensions are interesting as they allow us to
Non-equilibrium field dynamics of an honest holographic superconductor
A bstractMost holographic models of superconducting systems neglect the effects of dynamical boundary gauge fields during the process of spontaneous symmetry-breaking. Usually a global symmetry gets

Holographic Superconductors
It has been shown that a gravitational dual to a superconductor can be obtained by coupling anti-de Sitter gravity to a Maxwell field and charged scalar. We review our earlier analysis of this theory
Flavor superconductivity from gauge/gravity duality
We give a detailed account and extensions of a holographic flavor supercon- ductivity model which we have proposed recently. The model has an explicit field theory realization as strongly coupled N =

We study a system of a complex charged scalar coupled to a Reissner-Nordstr?m black hole in 3+1 dimensional anti-de Sitter spacetime, neglecting back-reaction. With suitable boundary conditions, the

We consider holography for d-dimensional scale invariant but non-Lorentz invariant field theories, which do not admit the full Schrodinger symmetry group. We find new realizations of the
