TITLE Fluid gravity at finite r
(英語 / in English)
SPEAKER Mr. Daniel K. Brattan
Durham Univ. U.K. Dept. of Mathematical Sciences
DATE: December 16 (Fri.) 16:00 − 17:00
PLACE: Kenkyu Honkan 3F, Meeting Room 322


The fluid/gravity correspondence provides a precise link between solutions to a class of Navier-Stokes problems and solving vacuum Einstein's equations with a negative cosmological constant. In this talk I will attempt to demonstrate that we do not need to be at the boundary of the resultant spacetimes to extract transport coefficients. I will also discuss some tantalising hints of how the membrane paradigm may be embedded as an object in the boundary field theory.
