We initiate a holographic model building approach to ‘strange metallic ’ phenomenology. Our model couples a neutral Lifshitzinvariant quantum critical theory, dual to a bulk gravitational background, to a finite density of gapped probe charge carriers, dually described by Dbranes. In the physical regime of temperature much lower than the charge density and gap, we exhibit anomalous scalings of the temperature and frequency dependent conductivity. Choosing the dynamical critical exponent z appropriately we can match the nonFermi liquid scalings, such as linear resistivity, observed in strange metal regimes. As part of our investigation we outline three distinct string theory realizations of Lifshitz geometries: from F theory, from polarised branes, and from a gravitating charged Fermi gas. We also identify general features of renormalisation group flow in Lifshitz theories, such as the appearance of relevant chargecharge interactions when z ≥ 2. We outline a program to extend this model building approach to other anomalous observables of

We consider a D7brane probe of AdS5 ×S 5 in the presence of pure gauge Bfield. In the dual gauge theory, the Bfield couples to the fundamental matter introduced by the D7brane and acts as an external magnetic field. The Bfield supports a 6form RamondRamond potential on the D7branes world volume that breaks the supersymmetry and enables the dual gauge theory to develop a nonzero fermionic condensate. We explore the dependence of the fermionic condensate on the bare quark mass mq and show that at zero bare quark mass a chiral symmetry is spontaneously broken. A study of the meson spectrum reveals a coupling between the vector and scalar modes, and in the limit of weak magnetic field we observe Zeeman splitting of the states. We also observe the characteristic √ mq dependence of the ground state corresponding to the Goldstone boson of spontaneously broken chiral symmetry. 1 In recent years, progress has been made in the study of gauge theory with matter in

The equilibrium thermodynamic properties of the SU(N) plasma at finite temperature are studied nonperturbatively in the largeN limit, via lattice simulations. We present highprecision numerical results for the pressure, trace of the energymomentum tensor, energy density and entropy density of SU(N) YangMills theories with N = 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 colors, in a temperature range from 0.8Tc to 3.4Tc (where Tc denotes the critical deconfinement temperature). The results, normalized according to the number of gluons, show a very mild dependence on N, supporting the idea that the dynamics of the stronglyinteracting QCD plasma could admit a description based on largeN models. We compare our numerical data with general expectations about the thermal behavior of the deconfined gluon plasma and with various theoretical descriptions, including, in particular, the improved holographic QCD model recently proposed by Kiritsis and collaborators. We also comment on the relevance of an AdS/CFT description for the QCD plasma in a phenomenologically interesting temperature range where the system, while still stronglycoupled, approaches a ‘quasiconformal’ regime characterized by approximate scale invariance. Finally, we perform an extrapolation of our

We calculate the jet quenching parameter in medium with chemical potential from AdS/CFT correspondence. Our result is summarized in a plot. Moreover, we extract the explicit form of the jet quenching parameter of medium with small chemical potential for phases of dual SYM corresponding to large and small black holes. For the former phase, the jet quenching is increased as the charge density increases, however, for the latter it is the opposite.
