A bstractWe use the AdS/CFT correspondence to determine the out-of-equilibrium production rate of dileptons at rest in strongly coupled $ \mathcal{N} = 4 $ Super Yang-Mills plasma. Thermalization is achieved via the gravitational collapse of a thin shell of matter in AdS5 space and the subsequent formation of a black hole, which we describe in a quasistatic approximation. Prior to thermalization, the dilepton spectral function is observed to oscillate as a function of frequency, but the… Expand
