R-Charged Black Hole and Holographic Superfluid



In this paper we consider an interesting model of superfluid and use AdS/CFT correspondence to extract sound modes. We assume that dual picture of superfluid is the R-charged black hole with two equal charges. By using hydrodynamic variables of such a black hole we obtain first, second and fourth sound modes as a function of black hole charge.
