Using the holographic mapping to a gravity dual, we calculate 2-point functions, Wilson loops, and entanglement entropy in strongly coupled field theories in d=2, 3, and 4 to probe the scale dependence of thermalization following a sudden injection of energy. For homogeneous initial conditions, the entanglement entropy thermalizes slowest and sets a time scale for equilibration that saturates a causality bound. The growth rate of entanglement entropy density is nearly volume-independent for… Expand

Holographic thermalization in Gauss-Bonnet gravity with de Sitter boundary
We introduce higher-derivative Gauss-Bonnet correction terms in the gravity sector, and we relate the modified gravity theory in the bulk to the strongly coupled quantum field theory on a de SitterExpand
Holographic thermalization from Kerr-AdS
A bstractWe study thermalization of a strongly coupled theory holographically dual to a thin shell of null dust with non-zero angular momentum collapsing to Kerr-AdS. We calculate thermalization timeExpand
Dynamics of asymptotically AdS spaces and holography
This thesis presents a series of studies on the evolution and out-ofequilibrium dynamics of strongly coupled quantum eld theories by means of the AdS/CFT correspondence. We use a handful of analyticExpand
The spectral function in a strongly coupled, thermalising CFT
In relation to the fluctuation-dissipation theorem, we discuss a time-dependent notion of spectral function and effective temperature. Extending recent results from arXiv:1212.6066, we work out theseExpand

Thermalization in a holographic confining gauge theory
A bstractTime dependent perturbations of states in the holographic dual of a 3+1 dimensional confining theory are considered. The perturbations are induced by varying the coupling to the theory’sExpand
Time-evolution of the holographic entanglement entropy and metric perturbationst
