We consider strongly coupled field theories at large N on black hole backgrounds. At sufficiently high Hawking temperature TH, one expects a phase where the black hole is in equilibrium with a deconfined plasma. We explore this phase in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence and argue that two possible behaviors may result. At a given Hawking temperature TH, field theories on large black hole backgrounds will result in a plasma that interacts strongly with the black hole. Such cases will be… 

Hawking radiation from small black holes at strong coupling and large N

In a previous work an approximate static metric was found of a test black string that stretches from the boundary to the horizon of the planar Schwarzschild–AdS5 geometry. This is the gravity dual of

Strongly-Coupled Quarks and Colorful Black Holes

We use the AdS/CFT correspondence to study the behavior of strongly-coupled quarks in a black hole background. The supergravity background consists of a six-dimensional Schwarzschild-black string AdS

Holographic thermal field theory on curved spacetimes

The AdS/CFT correspondence relates certain strongly-coupled CFTs with large effective central charge ceff to semi-classical gravitational theories with AdS asymptotics. We describe recent progress in

Phases of holographic Hawking radiation on spatially compact spacetimes

We study phases of equilibrium Hawking radiation in d-dimensional holo- graphic CFTs on spatially compact spacetimes with two black holes. In the particular phases chosen the dual (d + 1)-dimensional

Hawking radiation, local temperatures, and nonequilibrium thermodynamics of the black holes with non-Killing horizon

Recently, a class of stationary black hole solutions with non-killing horizon in the asymptotic AdS bulk space (i.e. non-equilibrium black funnel) was constructed to describe the far from equilibrium

Phases of holographic Hawking radiation on spatially compact spacetimes

A bstractWe study phases of equilibrium Hawking radiation in d-dimensional holo- graphic CFTs on spatially compact spacetimes with two black holes. In the particular phases chosen the dual (d +

The Schwarzschild–black string AdS soliton: instability and holographic heat transport

We present a calculation of two-point correlation functions of the stress–energy tensor in the strongly coupled, confining gauge theory which is holographically dual to the AdS soliton geometry. The

2 Some Preliminaries 2 . 1 A preamble : The five-dimensional black string

Small black holes potentially created by the Large Hadron Collider could typically carry color charges inherited from their parton progenitors. The dynamics of quarks near such a black hole depends

The averaged null energy condition on holographic evaporating black holes

We examine the averaged null energy condition (ANEC) for strongly coupled fields, along the event horizon of an evaporating black hole by using the AdS/CFT duality. First, we consider a holographic



Plasma balls in large-N gauge theories and localized black holes

We argue for the existence of plasma balls—metastable, nearly homogeneous lumps of gluon plasma at just above the deconfinement energy density—in a class of large-N confining gauge theories that

Quantum Black Holes as Holograms in AdS Braneworlds

We propose a new approach for using the AdS/CFT correspondence to study quantum black hole physics. The black holes on a brane in an AdSD+1 braneworld that solve the classical bulk equations are

AdS/CFT Duals of Topological Black Holes and the Entropy of Zero-Energy States

The horizon of a static black hole in anti-de Sitter space can be spherical, planar, or hyperbolic. The microscopic dynamics of the first two classes of black holes have been extensively discussed

Thermodynamics of black holes in anti-de Sitter space

The Einstein equations with a negative cosmological constant admit black hole solutions which are asymptotic to anti-de Sitter space. Like black holes in asymptotically flat space, these solutions

Black funnels and droplets from the AdS C-metrics

We recently argued that the dynamics of strongly coupled field theories in black hole backgrounds is related via the AdS/CFT correspondence to two new classes of AdS black hole solutions: black

Six-dimensional localized black holes: Numerical solutions

To test the strong-gravity regime in Randall-Sundrum braneworlds, we consider black holes bound to a brane. In a previous paper, we studied numerical solutions of localized black holes whose horizon

Exact gravitational dual of a plasma ball

We present an exact solution for a black hole localized near an infrared wall in four-dimensional anti-deSitter space. By computing the holographic stress tensor we show that the CFT dual of the

Charged Randall-Sundrum black holes and = 4 super Yang-Mills in AdS2 × S2

We obtain some exact results for black holes in the Randall-Sundrum model with a single brane. We consider an extreme black hole charged with respect to a Maxwell field on the brane. The near-horizon

On the existence of a static black hole on a brane

The possible origins for the nonsystematic error are discussed, and the result is naturally interpreted as the evidence for the nonexistence of solutions to this setup, although an ``approximate'' solution exists for sufficiently small brane tension.
