MAM Seminar : Back and forth from Supergravity to Condensed Matter

Wednesday January 30 2013. 2:00pm - Coffee room 

Speaker: Francesco Aprile

Abstract: The AdS/CFT correspondence has been applied on a vast number of interesting problems in theoretical physics. The newcomer in this field goes by the name of AdS/CMT and connects the world of black holes in higher dimensions with the physics of condensed matter.

The holographic superconductor has been the first gravitational background to be born under the influence of these kind of new ideas. I will briefly recall the basic tools needed to engineer a superconducting black hole and from there on I will lead the discuss on a more specific topic. In particular, by considering some concrete example, I will introduce types of geometry which are dual to several interesting phases of charged matter and point out what are their main features.
