Special Seminar

Speaker: Daniel Brattan (Durham University)
Title: Fluid gravity at finite r
Date (JST): Tue, Dec 20, 2011, 13:30 - 14:30
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: The fluid/gravity correspondence provides a precise link between solutions to a class of Navier-Stokes problems and solving vacuum Einstein's equations with a negative cosmological constant. In this talk I will attempt to demonstrate that we do not need to be at the boundary of the resultant spacetimes to extract transport coefficients. I will also discuss some tantalising hints of how the membrane paradigm may be embedded as an object in the boundary field theory.
