We use the AdS/CFT correspondence to compute the conductivity of massive = 2 hypermultiplet fields at finite baryon number density in an = 4 SU(Nc) super-Yang-Mills theory plasma in the large Nc, large 't Hooft coupling limit. The finite baryon density provides charge carriers analogous to electrons in a metal. An external electric field then induces a finite current which we determine directly. Our result for the conductivity is good for all values of the mass, external field and density… 
Holographic spectral functions in metallic AdS/CFT
We study the holographic D3/D7 setup dual to = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills with quenched fundamental matter. We extend the previous analyses of conductivity and photoproduction to the case where
Double Thermalization via AdS/CFT
We exploit the AdS/CFT correspondence to investigate thermalization in an N=2 strongly coupled gauge theory including massless fundamental matter (quark). More precisely, we consider the response of
Holographic spectral functions at finite baryon density
Using the AdS/CFT correspondence, we compute the spectral functions of thermal super Yang Mills at large Nc coupled to a small number of flavours of fundamental matter, Nf << Nc, in the presence of a

We use the AdS/CFT correspondence to study = 4 supersymmetric SU(Nc) Yang-Mills theory, in the limits of large Nc and large 't Hooft coupling, coupled to a number Nf of massless hypermultiplet fields
The stress-energy tensor of flavor fields from AdS/CFT
We use the AdS/CFT correspondence to study the transport properties of massive = 2 hypermultiplet fields in an = 4 SU(Nc) super-Yang-Mills theory plasma in the large Nc, large 't Hooft coupling
Approximate strange metallic behavior in AdS
We show for unit dynamical exponent, $z=1$, the appearance of the Fermi liquid and non-Fermi liquid behavior as we tune the charge density and the magnetic field in 3+1 dimensional field theory using
Flavor superconductivity from gauge/gravity duality
We give a detailed account and extensions of a holographic flavor supercon- ductivity model which we have proposed recently. The model has an explicit field theory realization as strongly coupled N =
Holographic Flavor Transport in Arbitrary Constant Background Fields
We use gauge-gravity duality to compute a new transport coefficient associated with a number Nf of massive N=2 supersymmetric hypermultiplet fields propagating through an N=4 SU(Nc) super-Yang-Mills


From AdS/CFT correspondence to hydrodynamics
We compute the correlation functions of R-charge currents and components of the stress-energy tensor in the strongly coupled large-N finite-temperature = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory, following
Meson Spectroscopy in AdS/CFT with Flavour
We compute the meson spectrum of an = 2 super Yang-Mills theory with fundamental matter from its dual string theory on AdS5 × S5 with a D7-brane probe [1]. For scalar and vector mesons with arbitrary
Quantum critical transport, duality, and M-theory
We consider charge transport properties of 2+1 dimensional conformal field theories at non-zero temperature. For theories with only Abelian U(1) charges, we describe the action of particle-vortex
Holographic phase transitions at finite baryon density
We use holographic techniques to study SU(Nc) super Yang-Mills theory coupled to Nf << Nc flavours of fundamental matter at finite temperature and baryon density. We focus on four dimensions, for
Viscosity, Black Holes, and Quantum Field Theory
We review recent progress in applying the AdS/CFT correspondence to finite-temperature field theory. In particular, we show how the hydrodynamic behavior of field theory is reflected in the
Holographic Reconstruction of Spacetime¶and Renormalization in the AdS/CFT Correspondence
Abstract: We develop a systematic method for renormalizing the AdS/CFT prescription for computing correlation functions. This involves regularizing the bulk on-shell supergravity action in a

By weakly gauging one of the U(1) subgroups of the R-symmetry group, = 4 super-Yang-Mills theory can be coupled to electromagnetism, thus allowing a computation of photon production and related

The holographic Weyl anomaly
We calculate the Weyl anomaly for conformal field theories that can be described via the adS/CFT correspondence. This entails regularizing the gravitational part of the corresponding supergravity
The correspondence between supergravity (and string theory) on AdS space and boundary conformal field theory relates the thermodynamics of super-Yang–Mills theory in four dimensions to the
