# Viscous Plasma Evolution from Gravity Using Anti-de Sitter/Conformal-Field-Theory Correspondence

## Abstract

We analyze the anti-de Sitter/conformal-field-theory dual geometry of an expanding boost-invariant plasma. We show that the requirement of nonsingularity of the dual geometry for leading and subasymptotic times predicts, without any further assumptions about gauge theory dynamics, hydrodynamic expansion of the plasma with viscosity coefficient exactly matching the one obtained earlier in the static case by Policastro, Son, and Starinets.
