Universal scaling properties of holographic cohesive phases

Friday 20th September 2013 - 14:45 to 15:15
INI Seminar Room 1
Co-author: Kiritsis, Elias (University of Crete)

In this talk, we focus on zero-temperature, strongly-coupled, translation-invariant holographic phases at finite density. We show that they can be classified according to the scaling behavior of the metric, the electric potential and the electric flux. Solutions fall into two classes, depending on whether they break relativistic symmetry or not. We conjecture a universal scaling for the optical conductivity at zero temperature and low frequencies, which reduces to the correct result for both classes of solutions.
