Gauge/gravity duality model for gauge theory thermodynamics
We study a gauge/gravity model for the thermodynamics of a gauge theory with one running coupling. The gravity side contains an ansatz for the metric and a scalar field; on the field theory side one starts by giving an ansatz for the beta function describing the scale dependence of the coupling. The model is based on relating the scale to the extra dimensional coordinate and the beta function to the gravity fields, thereby also determining the scalar field potential. We study three different forms of beta functions of increasing complexity and give semianalytic solutions describing first order or continuous transitions. 
Mass spectrum and thermodynamics of quasiconformal gauge theories from gauge/gravity duality
We use gauge/gravity duality to study simultaneously the mass spectrum and the thermodynamics of a generic quasiconformal gauge theory, specified by its beta function. The beta function of a quasiconformal theory almost vanishes, and the coupling is almost constant between two widely separated energy scales. Depending on whether the gravity dual has a black hole or not, the mass spectrum is either a spectrum of quasinormal oscillations or a normal T=0 mass spectrum. The mass spectrum is quantitatively correlated with the thermal properties of the system. As the theory approaches conformality, the masses have to vanish. We show that inmore » 
Gauge/gravity Duality and MetastableDynamical Supersymmetry Breaking
We engineer a class of quiver gauge theories with several interesting features by studying Dbranes at a simple CalabiYau singularity. At weak 't Hooft coupling we argue using field theory techniques that these theories admit both supersymmetric vacua and metastable nonsupersymmetric vacua, though the arguments indicating the existence of the supersymmetry breaking states are not decisive. At strong 't Hooft coupling we find simple candidate gravity dual descriptions for both sets of vacua. 
Gaugegravity duality and thermalization of a boostinvariant perfect fluid
We derive the equation for the quasinormal modes corresponding to the scalar excitation of a black hole moving away in the fifth dimension. This geometry is the AdS/CFT dual of a boostinvariant expanding perfect fluid in N=4 SUSY YangMills theory at large propertime. On the gaugetheory side, the dominant solution of the equation describes the decay back to equilibrium of a scalar excitation of the perfect fluid. Its characteristic propertime can be interpreted as a thermalization time of the perfect fluid, which is a universal (and numerically small) constant in units of the unique scale of the problem.
