@article{AliAkbari2016EvolutionOW, title={Evolution of Wilson loop in time-dependent N =4 super Yang-Mills plasma}, author={M. Ali-Akbari and Farid Charmchi and Ali Davody and Hajar Ebrahim and Leila Shahkarami}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2016}, volume={93}, pages={086005} }

Using holography we have studied the time-dependent potential of a quark-antiquark pair in a dynamical strongly coupled plasma. The time-dependent plasma, whose dynamics is originated from the energy injection, is dual to AdS-Vaidya background. The quark-antiquark pair is represented by the endpoints of a string stretched from the boundary to the bulk. The evolution of the system is studied by evaluating the potential between quark and anti-quark, extracted from the expectation value of the…
