Soliton stars as holographic confined Fermi liquids

Bhattacharya, J (IPMU, Japan)
Monday 30 April 2012, 14:00-15:00

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


We shall report on a holographic dual of a confined Fermi liquid state which is constructed by putting a charged fluid of fermions in the AdS soliton geometry. We shall compare these solition star solutions with other existing zero temperature solutions and find interesting phase transitions in certain regions of parameter space. We will also analyze the probe fermion equations (in the WKB approximation) in the background of this soliton star geometry to confirm the presence of many sharp Fermi-surfaces in the system.
