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 holographic dual. The derived spectrum of linearized fluctuations characterizes the late-time dynamics of holographic strongly coupled non-conformal gauge theories in de Sitter background. Numerous checks and examples are presented. 

Hot Big Bang from inflation without the inflaton reheating

According to the standard lore, a prolonged inflation leaves a quantum field theory in a cold, low entropy state. Thus, some mechanism is needed to reheat this post-inflationary state, leaving a hot,

We study stability of the Dynamical Fixed Points (DFPs) of the cascading gauge theory at strong coupling in de Sitter space-time. We compute the spectra of the perturbative fluctuations and identify



Ringing in de Sitter spacetime

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

De Sitter vacua of strongly interacting QFT

A bstractWe use holographic correspondence to argue that Euclidean (Bunch-Davies) vacuum is a late-time attractor of the dynamical evolution of quantum gauge theories at strong coupling. The

Numerical solution of gravitational dynamics in asymptotically anti-de Sitter spacetimes

A bstractA variety of gravitational dynamics problems in asymptotically anti-de Sitter (AdS) spacetime are amenable to efficient numerical solution using a common approach involving a null slicing of

Holographic evolution with dynamical boundary gravity

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

Stabilization of the extended horizons

We extend Kodama-Ishibashi and Jansen-Rostworowski-Rutkowski master field framework to study quasinormal modes of black branes and black holes of Einstein gravity in D = 5 space-time dimensions with

Nonlocal probes of thermalization in holographic quenches with spectral methods

A bstractWe describe the application of pseudo-spectral methods to problems of holographic thermal quenches of relevant couplings in strongly coupled gauge theories. We focus on quenches of a

Master equations and stability of Einstein-Maxwell-scalar black holes

We derive master equations for linear perturbations in Einstein-Maxwell scalar theory, for any spacetime dimension D and any background with a maximally symmetric n = (D - 2)-dimensional spatial

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
