Gauge theory-string theory duality describes strongly coupled N = 4 super- symmetric SU(nc) Yang-Mills theory at finite temperature in terms of near extremal black 3-brane geometry in type IIB string theory. We use this correspondence to compute the leading correction in the inverse 't Hooft coupling to the shear diffusion constant, bulk viscosity and the speed of sound in the large-nc N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory plasma. The transport coefficients are extracted from the dispersion…

Towards ’t Hooft parameter corrections to charge transport in strongly-coupled plasma

We study R-charge transport in a wide class of strongly-coupled supersymmetric plasmas at finite temperature with ’t Hooft coupling corrections. To achieve this, we use the gauge/string duality and

Aspects of finite temperature field theories in Ads/CFT

In this dissertation I study some properties of field theories at finite temperature using the AdS/CFT correspondence. I present a general proof of an "inheritance principle" satisfied by a weakly

Applications of gauge/gravity dualities with charged Anti-de Sitter black holes

In this thesis, we deal with different applications of the Anti-de Sitter/Conformal Field Theory (AdS/CFT) correspondence. The AdS/CFT correspondence, which is also more generally referred to as

From strong to weak coupling in holographic models of thermalization

A bstractWe investigate the analytic structure of thermal energy-momentum tensor correlators at large but finite coupling in quantum field theories with gravity duals. We compute corrections to the

On SUGRA description of boost-invariant conformal plasma at strong coupling

We study string theory duals of the expanding boost invariant conformal gauge theory plasmas at strong coupling. The dual supergravity background is constructed as an asymptotic late-time expansion,



Shear viscosity of strongly coupled N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills plasma.

Using the anti-de Sitter/conformal field theory correspondence, the shear viscosity eta of the finite-temperature N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory is related with the absorption cross section of low-energy gravitons by a near-extremal black three-brane and it is shown that in the limit of zero frequency this cross section coincides with the area of the horizon.

Transport properties of cascading gauge theories

Cascading gauge theories of Klebanov et al. provide a model within a framework of gauge theory/string theory duality for a four-dimensional nonconformal gauge theory with a spontaneously generated

Sound waves in strongly coupled non-conformal gauge theory plasma

Using gauge theory/gravity duality we study sound wave propagation in strongly coupled non-conformal gauge theory plasma. We compute the speed of sound and the bulk viscosity of View the MathML

From AdS/CFT correspondence to hydrodynamics. II. Sound waves

As a non-trivial check of the non-supersymmetric gauge/gravity duality, we use a near-extremal black brane background to compute the retarded Green's functions of the stress-energy tensor in = 4

The Large-N Limit of Superconformal Field Theories and Supergravity

We show that the large-N limits of certainconformal field theories in various dimensions includein their Hilbert space a sector describing supergravityon the product of anti-de Sitter spacetimes,

The Hydrodynamics of M-Theory

We consider the low energy limit of a stack of N M-branes at finite temperature. In this limit, the M-branes are well described, via the AdS/CFT correspondence, in terms of classical solutions to the
