A New Approach to NonEquilibrium Physics from Gauge/Gravity Correspondence 

LeaderNAKAMURA, Shin Department of Physics, Chuo University


Research SubjectThe gauge/gravity duality (the AdS/CFT correspondence) is a theoretical map between a stronglyinteracting gauge theory and a theory of gravity. A finite temperature system of the gauge theory is described by a black hole: that means the macroscopic physics is obtained by solving the classical equations of motion in the gravity picture. We prepare nonequilibrium systems by solving the equations of motion in the presence of an external force driving the system out of equilibrium. In our research project, we use this new method to reveal possible fundamental laws of nonequilibrium systems beyond the linear response regime. Especially, I am planning to investigate into nonequilibrium phase transitions and critical phenomena, fluctuations and fundamental laws of nonequilibrium steady states, and properties of nonequilibrium systems with disorder.
