The Conifold's Competing Condensates

Wednesday 27th June 2012 - 16:15 to 16:30
INI Seminar Room 2
We discuss holographic superconductivity in the context of IIB on AdS_5 x T^{1,1}. In the spectrum on the gravity side, there are several modes with potential instabilities. In addition to the one identifed by Gubser et al, we point out that there is another, potentially more unstable mode. Moreover, we propose a concrete model for the dynamics of this mode. With this proposal at hand, we show that it indeed dominates the thermodynamics at low temperatures.
