# Holographic superconductors with higher curvature corrections

@article{Gregory2009HolographicSW, title={Holographic superconductors with higher curvature corrections}, author={Ruth Gregory and Sugumi Kanno and J. Soda}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2009}, volume={2009}, pages={010-010} }

We study (3+1)-dimensional holographic superconductors in Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity both numerically and analytically. It is found that higher curvature corrections make condensation harder. We give an analytic proof of this result, and directly demonstrate an analytic approximation method that explains the qualitative features of superconductors as well as giving quantitatively good numerical results. We also calculate conductivity and ωg/Tc, for ωg and Tc the gap in the frequency…
