### Spinning dragging strings

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute

#### Abstract

I will review a recent AdS/CFT computation of the drag force experienced by a heavy quark moving through strongly coupled N=4 SYM plasma at finite R charge density. I will explain, how a discrepancy between two previous calculations has now been resolved, and will briefly discuss the D7 brane boundary conditions relevant for the different classes of spinning string solutions found.
