Title: Light quark energy loss in strongly coupled N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills plasma

Abstract

We compute the penetration depth of a light quark moving through a large N{sub c}, strongly coupled N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills 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.
