Viscoelastic holography: from fluids to solids

Regular Seminar Matteo Baggioli (Crete U.)

14:00 QMW
room G O Jones 610

A review of the recent progress regarding the holograhic duals for viscoelastic and solid materials. After introducing a simple bottom-up model able of realizing such a setup the following physical properties will be discussed: i) the linear elastic features ii) viscoelasticity ii) the nature of phonons and pinning iii) the non linear elastic properties iiii) the convergence properties of the asymptotic expansion.
