Coupling constant dependence of the shear viscosity in N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory

Abstract:

Gauge theory-gravity duality predicts that the shear viscosity of N = 4 supersymmetric SU(N c) Yang-Mills plasma at temperature T in the limit of large N c and large 't Hooft coupling g YM2N c is independent of the coupling and equals to πN c2T 3 /8. In this paper, we compute the leading correction to the shear viscosity in inverse powers of 't Hooft coupling using the α′-co...
