Abstract

After reviewing the important and elegant concept of Berry's phase in quantum mechanics, I will show how Berry's phase arises in the dynamics of D-branes. I will then show how to use the AdS/CFT correspondence to understand Berry's phase in strongly coupled quantum systems in terms of gravitational precession in a curved background.
