Holographic superconductors from gauged supergravity

Triangular Seminar Jorge Russo (Barcelona)

17:00 QMW
room UG1 in Physics Building

Gauged supergravities arise from consistent truncations of string theory and provide a solid framework for condensed matter applications, in a context where the dual field theory is well understood. In this talk we shall discuss different models, including p-wave superconductivity by condensation of a two-form potential.
