PHYS 598 ADS - AdS/QFT Correspondence

Fall 2021

Official Description

Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in physics intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for topics and prerequisites. Course Information: May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary.

Section Description

This course will give students a working knowledge of the AdS/QFT correspondence, and its applications in particle physics, hydrodynamics, fluid mechanics, and condensed matter physics. Although students will benefit from having already a good knowledge of quantum field theory (such as from Physics 582-583), all other necessary material will be introduced in class, including rudimentary material on general relativity and string theory. Throughout the course, we will collaboratively develop code using Mathematica and/or Matlab to calculate interesting holographic observables. This section will have distributed attendance. You will receive an email from your instructor with specific attendance instructions.
