Lonti Autumn 2021 Series: Lecture 2. Live Tutorial. Please register at https://lonti.weebly.com/registration.html to receive joining instructions for this live session which will be held via Zoom. Abstract: In this lecture, we present a few elementary facts about Fermi surfaces, then discuss how to find interesting ``non-Fermi liquids'' via the AdS/CFT correspondence. We study different backgrounds (e.g. AdS, BTZ, and Reissner-Nordstrom), and the wave-equation of probe fields on top of these geometries. We discuss how to compute boundary two-point functions by solving the bulk equations and then explore the results.
