MAM Seminar - New transport properties of holographic superfluids

Wednesday  February 27th 2013, 2:00pm - Coffee room

Speaker: Daniel Fernandez

Abstract: In the context of holography applied to condensed matter theory, I will present an analysis of transport properties of p-wave superfluids by means of a gravity dual.

Fluctuation modes in the SU(2) Einstein-Yang-Mills theory are considered, and phenomenological implications are derived. Due to the spatial anisotropy of the system, a non-universal shear viscosity is obtained, along with a new coefficient associated to normal stress differences. I will also discuss how the transport phenomena in this model is related to the thermoelectric, flexoelectric and piezoelectric effects (mixing of electric current, heat flux and mechanical stress).
