Classifying the zerotemperature ground states of quantum field theories with finite charge density is a very interesting problem. Via holography, this problem is mapped to the classification of extremal charged black brane geometries with antide Sitter asymptotics. In a recent paper [1], we proposed a Bianchi classification of the extremal nearhorizon geometries in five dimensions, in the case where they are homogeneous but, in general, anisotropic. Here, we extend our study in two directions: we show that Bianchi attractors can lead to new phases, and generalize the classification of ar X iv

We use ‘generalized dimensional reduction ’ to relate a specific EinsteinMaxwellDilaton (EMD) theory, including two gauge fields, three neutral scalars and an axion, to higherdimensional AdS gravity (with no higherdimensional Maxwell field). In general, this is a dimensional reduction over compact Einstein spaces in which the dimension of the compact space is continued to nonintegral values. Specifically, we perform a nondiagonal KaluzaKlein (KK) reduction over a torus, involving two KK gauge fields. Our aim is to determine the holographic dictionary and hydrodynamic behaviour of the lowerdimensional theory by performing the generalized dimensional reduction on AdS. We study a specific example of a black brane carrying a wave, whose universal sector is described by gravity coupled to two Maxwell fields, three neutral scalars and an axion, and compute the first order transport coefficients of the dual theory. In these theories ζ̂s/η ̂ < 2 1/(d − 1) − ĉ2s, where ĉs is the speed of sound, violating a conjectured bound, but an alternative bound is satisfied. 1 ar

We show that strongly coupled holographic matter at finite charge density can exhibit charge density wave phases which spontaneously break translation invariance while preserving timereversal and parity invariance. We show that such phases are possible within EinsteinMaxwelldilaton theory in general spacetime dimensions. We also discuss related spatially modulated phases when there is an additional coupling to a second vector field, possibly with nonzero mass. We discuss how these constructions, and others, should be associated with novel spatially modulated ground states. ar
Interpolating from Bianchi attractors to Lifshitz and AdS spacetimes

Abstract: We construct classes of smooth metrics which interpolate from Bianchi attractor geometries of Types II, III, VI and IX in the IR to Lifshitz or AdS2 × S3 geometries in the UV. While we do not obtain these metrics as solutions of Einstein gravity coupled to a simple matter field theory, we show that the matter sector stressenergy required to support these geometries (via the Einstein equations) does satisfy the weak, and therefore also the null, energy condition. Since Lifshitz or AdS2×S3 geometries can in turn be connected to AdS5 spacetime, our results show that there is no barrier, at least at the level of the energy conditions, for solutions to arise connecting these Bianchi attractor geometries to AdS5 spacetime. The asymptotic AdS5 spacetime has no nonnormalizable metric deformation turned on, which suggests that furthermore, the Bianchi attractor geometries can be the IR geometries dual to field theories living in flat space, with the breaking of symmetries being either spontaneous or due to sources for other fields. Finally, we show that for a large class of flows which connect two Bianchi attractors, a Cfunction can be defined which is monotonically decreasing from the UV to the IR as long as the null energy condition is satisfied. However, except for special examples of Bianchi attractors (including AdS space), this function does not attain a finite and nonvanishing constant value at the end points. ar X iv

We extend our analysis of a IIB supergravity solution dual to a spatially anisotropic finitetemperature N = 4 super YangMills plasma. The solution is static, possesses an anisotropic horizon, and is completely regular. The full geometry can be viewed as a renormalization group flow from an AdS geometry in the ultraviolet to a Lifshitzlike geometry in the infrared. The anisotropy can be equivalently understood as resulting from a positiondependent θterm or from a nonzero number density of dissolved D7branes. The holographic stress tensor is conserved and anisotropic. The presence of a conformal anomaly plays an important role in the thermodynamics. The phase diagram exhibits homogeneous and inhomogeneous (i.e. mixed) phases. In some regions the homogeneous phase displays instabilities reminiscent of those of weakly coupled plasmas. We comment on similarities with QCD at finite baryon density and with the phenomenon of cavitation.

Abstract: We provide a simple low energy description of recombination of intersecting Dbranes using super YangMills theory. The recombination is realized by condensation of an offdiagonal tachyonic fluctuation localized at the intersecting point. The recombination process is equivalent to braneantibrane annihilation, thus our result confirms Sen’s conjecture on tachyon condensation, although we work in the super YangMills theory whose energy scale is much lower than α ′. We also discuss the decay width of nonparallelly separated Dbranes.
