Universality of steady states
  OKC/Nordita High-Energy Physics Theory seminar

Monday 14 December 2015
from 13:15 to 14:15
at 122:026
Speaker : Irene Amado (SU)
Abstract : In the recent years it has been suggested that formation of non-equilibrium steady states arising between two conformal field theories in thermal contact is completely universal. I will derive the conjecture by using both QFT and holographic arguments, and present the full evolution of black brane solutions in the presence of a fixed spatial gradient of temperature until the formation of such a steady state. I will finally discuss caveats and possible extensions in the search of universality in out of equilibrium systems.
