Gauge/Gravitational Holography — Strong Physics far from Equilibrium
One natural question within physics is the choice of fundamental variables for describing nature. Is gravity more fundamental than quantum field theory? The holographic principle has lead us to a re-formulation of quantum field theories in terms of gravitational theories, or vice versa. After an introduction to the concepts of this emerging field, we are going to discuss applications to experimentally testable observables, and apply new ways of thinking about non-perturbation physics at strong coupling, and potentially the fabric of spacetime.
