We give a brief overview of the basic philosophy behind applying gauge/gravity duality to problems in heavy ion physics. Recent progress regarding viscosities, anomalous hydrodynamics, energy loss, as well as thermalization will be reviewed.

Holographic lessons for quark dynamics

We give a brief overview of recent results obtained through the gauge/gravity correspondence, concerning the propagation of a heavy quark in strongly-coupled conformal field theories (such as N = 4

The Limits of Gauge-Gravity Duality

The Quark-Gluon Plasma [QGP] is described in terms of gauge-gravity duality by charged, locally asymptotically AdS black holes. This duality cannot however be expected to account for an arbitrarily

QCD, with strings attached

In the nearly 20 years that have elapsed since its discovery, the gauge-gravity correspondence has become established as an efficient tool to explore the physics of a large class of strongly-coupled

Shearing black holes and scans of the quark matter phase diagram

Future facilities such as FAIR and NICA are expected to produce collisions of heavy ions generating quark–gluon plasmas (QGPs) with large values of the quark chemical potential; peripheral collisions

Trajectory of the cosmic plasma through the quark matter phase diagram

Experimental studies of the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) focus on two, in practice distinct, regimes: one in which the baryonic chemical potential $\mu_B$ is essentially zero, the other in which it is of

Electromagnetic signature in holographic plasma with B field

We explore the effect of a magnetic field on the electromagnetic signature in QCD-like plasma by taking the AdS/CFT approach. Concretely, we choose two QCD gravity dual models to do comparative
