Abstract Holography has provided valuable insights into the time evolution of strongly coupled gauge theories in a fixed spacetime. However, this framework is insufficient if this spacetime is dynamical. We present a scheme to evolve a four-dimensional, strongly interacting gauge theory coupled to four-dimensional dynamical gravity in the semiclassical regime. As in previous work, we use holography to evolve the quantum gauge theory stress tensor, whereas the four-dimensional metric evolves… 

Holography and magnetohydrodynamics with dynamical gauge fields

Within the framework of holography, the Einstein-Maxwell action with Dirichlet boundary conditions corresponds to a dual conformal field theory in presence of an external gauge field. Nevertheless,

Massive holographic QFTs in de Sitter

We study strongly coupled mass-deformed-CFT on a fixed de Sitter spacetime in three dimensions via holography. We elucidate the global causal structure of the four-dimensional spacetime dual to the

Domain collisions

Abstract We use holography to study collisions of phase domains formed in a four-dimensional, strongly-coupled gauge theory with a first-order, thermal phase transition. We find three qualitatively

Holographic Meissner effect

The holographic superconductor is the holographic dual of superconductivity, but there is no Meissner effect in the standard holographic superconductor. This is because the boundary Maxwell field is

Holographic coarse-graining: correlators from the entanglement wedge and other reduced geometries

Abstract There is some tension between two well-known ideas in holography. On the one hand, subregion duality asserts that the reduced density matrix associated with a limited region of the boundary

We develop master equations to study perturbative stability of de Sitter Dynamical Fixed Points (DFPs) of strongly coupled massive quantum field theories in d + 1 space-time dimensions with a

Membrane nucleation rates from holography

: Membrane nucleation, a higher dimensional analog of the Schwinger effect, is a useful toy model for vacuum decay. While a non-perturbative effect, the computation of nucleation rates has only been



Generalized holographic cosmology

We consider general black hole solutions in five-dimensional spacetime in the presence of a negative cosmological constant. We obtain a cosmological evolution via the gravity/gauge theory duality

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

Holographic (de)confinement transitions in cosmological backgrounds

For type IIB supergravity with a running axio-dilaton, we construct bulk solutions which admit a cosmological background metric of Friedmann-Robertson-Walker type. These solutions include both a dark

Strong-coupling dynamics and entanglement in de Sitter space

We use holography to study the dynamics of a strongly-coupled gauge theory in four-dimensional de Sitter space with Hubble rate $H$. The gauge theory is non-conformal with a characteristic mass scale

We employ holographic duality to compute ⟨ Tμ ν ⟩ in strongly coupled 𝒩 = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory and then study evolution of the semiclassical Einstein field equations sourced by ⟨ Tμ ν

Quantum BTZ black hole

Abstract We study a holographic construction of quantum rotating BTZ black holes that incorporates the exact backreaction from strongly coupled quantum conformal fields. It is based on an exact

How to go with an RG flow

We apply the formalism of holographic renormalization to domain wall solutions of 5-dimensional supergravity which are dual to deformed conformal field theories in 4 dimensions. We carefully compute

FRW Solutions and Holography from Uplifted AdS/CFT

Starting from concrete AdS/CFT dual pairs, one can introduce ingredients which produce cosmological solutions, including metastable de Sitter and its decay to non-accelerating FRW. We present simple

Holographic Reconstruction of Spacetime¶and Renormalization in the AdS/CFT Correspondence

Abstract: We develop a systematic method for renormalizing the AdS/CFT prescription for computing correlation functions. This involves regularizing the bulk on-shell supergravity action in a
