Beschreibung:

Martin Ammon is a Junior Professor at Friedrich Schiller University, Jena, Germany, leading a research group on gauge/gravity duality. Johanna Erdmenger is a Research Group Leader at the Max Planck Institute for Physics (Werner Heisenberg Institute), Munich, Germany. She is one of the pioneers of applying gauge/gravity duality to elementary particle, nuclear and condensed matter physics.
Part I. Prerequisites: 1. Elements of field theory; 2. Elements of gravity; 3. Symmetries in quantum field theory; 4. Introduction to superstring theory; Part II. Gauge/Gravity Duality: 5. AdS/CFT correspondence; 6. Tests of the AdS/CFT correspondence; 7. Integrability and scattering amplitudes; 8. Further examples of AdS/CFT; 9. Holographic renormalisation group flows; 10. Duality with D-branes in supergravity; 11. Finite temperature and density; Part III. Applications: 12. Linear response and hydrodynamics; 13. QCD and holography: confinement and chiral symmetry breaking; 14. QCD and holography: finite temperature and density; 15. Strongly coupled condensed matter systems; Appendixes; References; Index.
Gauge/gravity duality presents new links between quantum theory and gravity, and provides new tools to solve problems in many areas of theoretical physics. This book is the first textbook on this important topic, enabling graduate students and researchers in particle and condensed matter physics to get acquainted with the subject.
