Abstract

Physics in the vicinity of quantum critical points in condensed matter systems can often be described by 2+1 dimensional conformal fields theories. The AdS_4/CFT_3 correspondence gives examples of solvable strongly coupled CFTs. I will discuss how properties of dyonic AdS_4 black holes are closely related, via the AdS/CFT correspondence, to recent measurements of thermoelectric transport in high T_c superconductors just above the insulator-superconductor transition.
