Regular Seminar Alexander Krikun (Nordita)
In its most general formulation the gauge/string duality may be used to build models of various strongly coupled systems in condensed matter. One of these is high-temperature d-wave superconductor. The holographic model of d-wave superconductor includes the dynamics of spin-2 charged field on top of the curved AdS geometry. In the probe approximation the model may be formulated consistently and exhibits a number of interesting physical phenomena. The important task is to classify all possible ground states of the model, which will correspond to the various phases of the dual system, and study the resulting phase diagram. In this talk I will discuss the recently found ground state which exhibits the stripes of charge density, violates the translation symmetry spontaneously and may be associated with the pseudogap state in high-Tc superconductors.
