Holographic Fermi Surfaces: The view from the Top Down

Julian Sonner will give a talk, September 8, 2011, titled “Holographic Fermi Surfaces: The view from the Top Down”, in SCGP Room 102 at 11:15am Abstract:  Strongly interacting fermions at finite density are infamously hard to treat. Gauge/gravity duality gives a way of studying them in a controlled environment. For such studies to be reliable it is important […]
