Holographic quantum liquids

Abstract:

In this thesis, applications of Holography in the context of Condensed Matter Physics and in particular hydrodynamics, will be studied. Holog- raphy or gauge/gravity duality has been an enormously useful tool in studying strongly-coupled Field Theories with particular success in their low-frequency and large-wavelength fluctuation regime, i.e the hydrody- namical regime. Here, following a phenomenological approach, gravita- tional systems, simple enough to be properly examined, will be stu...
