Schwinger effect in confining gauge theories via holography
  OKC/Nordita High-Energy Physics Theory seminar

Wednesday 12 March 2014
from 13:30 to 14:30
at 132:028
Speaker : Yoshiki Sato (unusual day) (Kyoto University)
Abstract : The Schwinger effect is known as a non-perturbative phenomenon in QED. The virtual electron-positron pairs can be created as real particles due to the presence of a strong electric field. Recently, Semenoff and Zarembo have proposed a setup to consider the Schwinger effect in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence. In this seminar, I will talk the Schwinger effect in confining gauge theories from the viewpoint of quark-antiquark potential and the production rate. This talk is based on the collaboration with Kentaroh Yoshida and Daisuke Kawai (Kyoto U.), arXiv:1306.5512, 1309.4629, 1312.4341.
