Project description

The quark-gluon plasma can be described holographically involving a black hole in 5 dimensions which behaves as a membrane with hydrodynamic properties. The purpose of this research proposal is to deduce this fluid membrane ab initio from a dual string model. We will investigate the AdS5/CFT model and how two component quantum liquids are realized on the stretched horizon.
