We study two-point correlation function in a medium composed of two kinds of matter, which is the dual of a three-dimensional generalized p-brane gas geometry. Following the holographic prescription, we calculate temporal and spatial two-point functions in the medium. In general, the screening effect of the medium makes two-point functions decrease more rapidly than the CFT's two-point function. In the extremal limit, however, we find that a temporal two-point function is still conformal. This indicates that a two-dimensional UV CFT flows into a one-dimensional quantum mechanics in the IR limit. This is consistent with the fact that the near horizon geometry in the extremal limit reduces to AdS2. We also investigate holographic mutual information representing the correlation between two subsystems. We show that a critical distance in the IR region, where the mutual information vanishes, leads to a behavior similar to the correlation length of a two-point function. |
