Energy deposited by a quark moving in an N=4 super YangMills plasma
Abstract
We evaluate the energymomentum tensor of a massive quark as it moves through an N=4 SYM quarkgluon plasma at constant velocity. We find that in the nearquark region, where the dynamics is expected to be dominated by dissipative behavior, the energy density may be quantitatively characterized by a transient at velocities above the speed of sound of the plasma.

Stressenergy tensor of a quark moving through a stronglycoupled N=4 supersymmetric YangMills plasma: Comparing hydrodynamics and AdS/CFT duality
The stressenergy tensor of a quark moving through a stronglycoupled N=4 supersymmetric YangMills plasma, at large N{sub c}, is evaluated using gauge/string duality. The accuracy with which the resulting wake, in position space, is reproduced by hydrodynamics is examined. Remarkable agreement is found between hydrodynamics and the complete result down to distances less than 2/T away from the quark. In performing the gravitational analysis, we use a relatively simple formulation of the bulk to boundary problem in which the linearized Einstein field equations are fully decoupled. Our analysis easily generalizes to other sources in the bulk. 
Nearzone NavierStokes analysis of heavy quark jet quenching in an N=4 superYangMills plasma
The near zone energymomentum tensor of a supersonic heavy quark jet moving through a strongly coupled N=4 super YangMills (SYM) plasma is analyzed in terms of firstorder NavierStokes hydrodynamics. It is shown that the hydrodynamic description of the near quark region worsens with increasing quark velocities. For realistic quark velocities, v=0.99, the nonhydrodynamic region is located at a narrow band surrounding the quark with a width of approximately 3/{pi}T in the direction parallel to the quark's motion and with a length of roughly 10/{pi}T in the perpendicular direction. Our results can be interpreted as an indication of the presence ofmore »

The energy density wake produced by a heavy quark moving through a strongly coupled N=4 supersymmetric YangMills plasma is computed using gaugestring duality. 
Light quark energy loss in strongly coupled N=4 supersymmetric YangMills plasma
We compute the penetration depth of a light quark moving through a large N{sub c}, strongly coupled N=4 supersymmetric YangMills plasma using gauge/gravity duality and a combination of analytic and numerical techniques. We find that the maximum distance a quark with energy E can travel through a plasma is given by {delta}x{sub max}(E)=(C/T)(E/T{radical}({lambda})){sup 1/3} with C{approx_equal}0.5.
