This book describes applications of the AdS/CFT duality to the qreal world.q The AdS/CFT duality is an idea that originated from string theory and is a powerful tool for analyzing strongly-coupled gauge theories using classical gravitational theories. In recent years, it has been shown that one prediction of AdS/CFT is indeed close to the experimental result of the real quarkagluon plasma. Since then, the AdS/CFT duality has been applied to various fields of physics; examples are QCD, nuclear physics, condensed-matter physics, and nonequilibrium physics. The aim of this book is to provide background materials such as string theory, black holes, nuclear physics, condensed-matter physics, and nonequilibrium physics as well as key applications of the AdS/CFT duality in a single volume. The emphasis throughout the book is on a pedagogical and intuitive approach focusing on the underlying physical concepts. It also includes step-by-step computations for important results, which are useful for beginners. This book will be a valuable reference work for graduate students and researchers in particle physics, general relativity, nuclear physics, nonequilibrium physics, and condensed-matter physics.Thus, Iu becomes sufficiently tachyonic for a large enough I¼/T or for low enough temperature. ... This is certainly part of the reason, but the reason here is mainly technical: the equations of motion are often easiest to solve (with the choice of scalar mass). ... Then, matter equations are A0 a 2|Iu|2u2h A0 = 0, (14.43) u2h( hu2Iu) + ( A20T2h2a L2m2u2h ) Iu = 0, (14.44) where := au and T := 4IT/3 = r0/ L2.
