Parallel Session: Holography

The first law of entanglement entropy states that under a perturbation of the state of a CFT, the change in entanglement entropy is proportional to the change in energy. We use holography to study entanglement entropy in conformal field theories perturbed by a source linear in time. Under certain assumptions, we find that the first law may be violated, however the rates of change of the...

In this talk we are going to study hydrodynamics on curved manifolds, inspired by the holographic prescription for obtaining the thermoelectric DC conductivities of the boundary theory by solving the Navier-Stokes equations on black hole horizons. We place the underlying conformal field theory on curved space and we derive the Navier-Stokes equations after the application of a thermal...

Due to a correspondence between Hydrodynamics and Gravity, one can study a fluid-like Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) at infinite coupling through perturbations of a boosted blackbrane solution in General Relativity. In previous work the late time expansion of Bjorken flow (1-dimensional, boost-invariant flow as present during Heavy Ion collisions) was computed in a gradient expansion to high...
