Quantum Anomalies Program Seminar: Tigran Kalaydzhyan, Stony Brook University

Title: “Intro: Holographic fluids and superfluids”
Speaker: Tigran Kalaydzhyan, Stony Brook University
Date: Thursday January 16
Time: 1:00pm
Place: Seminar Room 313, Simons Center

Abstract: I will present a pedagogical introduction to the fluid-gravity duality. I will start from the intuitive description of the AdS/CFT-correspondence without any use of the string theory, and describe the duality dictionary most suitable for the direct applications of the technique. I will then comment on the extension of the duality for the case of superfluids.
