Holographic modeling of nuclear matter and neutron stars

  title={Holographic modeling of nuclear matter and neutron stars},
  author={Matti Jarvinen},
I review holographic models for (dense and cold) nuclear matter, neutron stars, and their mergers. I start by a brief general discussion on current knowledge of cold QCD matter and neutron stars, and go on discussing various approaches to model cold nuclear and quark matter by using gauge/gravity duality, pointing out their strengths and weaknesses. Then I concentrate on recent results for a complex bottom-up holographic framework (V-QCD), which also takes input from lattice QCD results… 
Holographic QCD in the NICER era
We analyze families of hybrid equations of state of cold QCD matter, which combine input from gauge/gravity duality and from various ab initio methods for nuclear matter at low density, and predict
Holographic approach to compact stars and their binary mergers
In this review article, we describe the role of holography in deciphering the physics of dense QCD matter, relevant for the description of compact stars and their binary mergers. We review the
Analytic long-lived modes in charged critical plasma
Fluctuations around critical behavior of a holographic charged plasmas are investigated by studying quasi-normal modes of the corresponding black branes in 5D Einstein-Maxwell-Dilaton gravity. The
