Holographic phase transitions at finite chemical potential

Recently holographic techniques have been used to study the thermal properties of N = 2 super-Yang-Mills theory, with gauge group SU(Nc) and coupled to Nf ≪ Nc flavours of fundamental matter, at large Nc and large ’t Hooft coupling. Here we consider the phase diagram as a function of temperature and baryon chemical potential μb. For fixed μb < NcMq there is… CONTINUE READING
