  • We consider a holographic model constructed from the intersecting brane configuration D4-D4/D4 in noncritical string theory. We study the chiral phase diagram of this holographic QCD-like model with a finite baryon chemical potential through the supergravity dual approximation.
  • The ionization equilibrium of an electron-hole plasma in a highly excited semiconductor is investigated. Special attention is directed to the influence of many-particle effects such as screening and lowering of the ionization energy causing, in particular, the Mott effect (density ionization). This effect limits the region of existence of excitons and, therefore, of a possible Bose-Einstein condensate at low temperatures. Results for the chemical potential and the degree of ionization are presented for zinc selenide (ZnSe). A possible window for the occurrence of a Bose-Einstein condensate of excitons is shown, taking into account the Mott effect.
  • We study the off-equilibrium dynamics of the infinite-dimensional Bose-Hubbard model after a quantum quench. The dynamics can be analyzed exactly by mapping it to an effective Newtonian evolution. For integer filling, we find a dynamical transition separating regimes of small and large quantum quenches starting from the superfluid state. This transition is very similar to the one found for the fermionic Hubbard model by mean field approximations.
  • In the framework of a holographic QCD approach we study the influence of matter on the deconfinement temperature T{sub c}. We first consider the quark flavor number (N{sub f}) dependence of T{sub c}. We observe that T{sub c} decreases with N{sub f}, which is consistent with a lattice QCD result. We also delve into how the quark number density {rho}{sub q} affects the value of T{sub c}. We find that T{sub c} drops with increasing {rho}{sub q}. In both cases, we confirm that the contributions from quarks are suppressed by 1/N{sub c}, as it should be, compared to the onesmore » from a gravitational action (pure Yang-Mills theory)« less
