# Holographic stress tensor for non-relativistic theories

@article{Ross2009HolographicST, title={Holographic stress tensor for non-relativistic theories}, author={Simon F Ross and Omid Saremi}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2009}, volume={2009}, pages={009-009} }

We discuss the calculation of the field theory stress tensor from the dual geometry for two recent proposals for gravity duals of non-relativistic conformal field theories. The first of these has a Schrodinger symmetry including Galilean boosts, while the second has just an anisotropic scale invariance (the Lifshitz case). For the Lifshitz case, we construct an appropriate action principle. We propose a definition of the non-relativistic stress tensor complex for the field theory as an…
