Academic Lecture: Holography, momentum dissipation and chaos

2017-05-26

Seminar 
Title: Holography, momentum dissipation and chaos 
Speaker: Dr. Matteo Baggioli (University of Crete) 
Time: 10:00 AM, June 2nd, 2017 (Friday) 
Place: Theoretical Physics Division,319 

Abstract: The speaker will discuss why and how to introduce momentum dissipation into the framework of the gauge-gravity duality with particular emphasis on the condensed matter applications. He will review the most relevant models and how to extract the thermoelectric conductivities within them. As a physical and interesting utilization he will present the recent developments about the possible existence of universal bounds on conductivities and diffusivities linked with quantum chaos.
