Holographic approaches to strongly-interacting systems

Abstract:

In this thesis, we investigate some applications of the gauge/string duality to strongly-coupled quantum field theories. After a brief review of the duality and the main entries of the holographic dictionary, we explore the asymptotic nature of the gradient expansion for Bjorken flow using the fluid/gravity correspondence. We link the divergence of the series to the presence of non-perturbative quasi-normal modes and construct the hydrodynamic attractor, using Borel-Padé summation techniqu...
