Exotic holographic dispersion
- 11 Downloads
For strongly interacting systems, where perturbation theory is not applicable, holographic duality is a powerful framework for computing e.g. dispersion relations. Using the standard Reissner-Nordström black hole as a holographic model for a (strange) metal, we obtain exotic dispersion relations for both plasmon modes and quasinormal modes for certain intermediate values of the charge of the black hole.
The obtained dispersion relations show dissipative behavior which we compare to the generic expectations from the Caldeira-Leggett model for quantum dissipation. Based on these considerations, we investigate how holography can predict higher order corrections for strongly coupled physics.
