Abstract: In this talk I will first introduce the general notion of hydrodynamics as an effective theory, and the approximation involved. I will then review the relation between hydrodynamics and black hole physics within the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence, and here in particular how the AdS/CFT correspondence predicts the hydrodynamic transport properties of certain strongly coupled states of matter.
Finally, I will present results of a recent phenomenological study of strongly coupled fluids in channel geometries motivated by the AdS/CFT correspondence. I will also discuss the effect of Hall viscosity on these channel flows, as well as characteristics of strongly correlated materials necessary in order to show strong Coulomb coupling.
