On the Einstein Relation in holographic systems at finite baryon density

  title={On the Einstein Relation in holographic systems at finite baryon density},
  author={Javier Mas and Jonathan P. Shock and Javier Tarr{\'i}o},
We study the conductivity, susceptibility and diffusion of a strongly coupled quark gluon plasma from the holographic perspective. We calculate general expressions for these quantities in the presence of finite baryon density and show that in this context, for the D3/D7 intersection the Einstein relation holds, providing another non-trivial check of the holographic correspondence at finite temperature.

Holographic flavor transport in Schrödinger spacetime
We use gauge-gravity duality to study the transport properties of a finite density of charge carriers in a strongly-coupled theory with non-relativistic symmetry. The field theory is $$ \mathcal{N} =


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
Holographic spectral functions and diffusion constants for fundamental matter
The holographic dual of large-Nc super-Yang-Mills coupled to a small number of flavours of fundamental matter, Nf << Nc, is described by Nf probe D7-branes in the gravitational background of Nc black
Bright branes for strongly coupled plasmas
We use holographic techniques to study photon production in a class of finite temperature, strongly coupled, large-Nc SU(Nc) quark-gluon plasmas with Nf<< Nc quark flavours. Our results are valid to
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
Minkowski-space correlators in AdS/CFT correspondence: recipe and applications
We formulate a prescription for computing Minkowski-space correlators from AdS/CFT correspondence. This prescription is shown to give the correct retarded propagators at zero temperature in four

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,
Holography and hydrodynamics: Diffusion on stretched horizons
We show that long-time, long-distance fluctuations of plane-symmetric horizons exhibit universal hydrodynamic behavior. By considering classical fluctuations around black-brane backgrounds, we find
Universality of the hydrodynamic limit in AdS/CFT and the membrane paradigm
We show that at the level of linear response the low-frequency limit of a strongly coupled field theory at finite temperature is determined by the horizon geometry of its gravity dual, i.e., by the
Photon and dilepton production in supersymmetric Yang-Mills plasma
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
Universal conductivity and central charges
We discuss a class of critical models in d{>=}2+1 dimensions whose electrical conductivity and charge susceptibility are fixed by the central charge in a universal manner. We comment on possible
