Fluid-gravity correspondence: from Black Holes to transport phenomena in charged plasma
Adviser: Michael Lublinsky
advertised on Mon, 31 Aug 2020
Charged plasma and neutral fluids in our 4 dimensional world can be holographically related to gravity in a 5 dimensional curved space. Thus transport properties of the former, such as conductivities and viscosities, could be studied in the framework of Einstein gravity in black hole backgrounds.
Several exploratory directions are possible and will be discussed with interested student(s). The project(s) are analytical/numerical.
