We present BPS black hole solutions in a four-dimensional \( \mathcal{N} \) = 2 supergravity with an abelian dyonic gauging of the universal hypermultiplet moduli space. This supergravity arises as the SU(3)-invariant subsector in the reduction of massive IIA supergravity on a six-sphere. The solutions are supported by non-constant scalar, vector and tensor fields and interpolate...

We construct the gravity dual of d = 4, \( \mathcal{N}=4 \), SU(N c) super Yang-Mills theory, coupled to N f flavors of dynamical quarks, at non-zero temperature T and nonzero quark density N q. The supergravity solutions possess a regular horizon if T > 0 and include the backreaction of N c color D3-branes and N f flavor D7-branes with N q units of electric flux on their...

Holography for UV-incomplete gauge theories is important but poorly understood. A paradigmatic example is d = 4, \( \mathcal{N}=4 \) super Yang-Mills coupled to N f quark flavors, which possesses a Landau pole at a UV scale ΛLP. The dual gravity solution exhibits a UV singularity at a finite proper distance along the holographic direction. Despite this, holographic...

The addition of supersymmetric Chern-Simons terms to \( \mathcal{N}=8 \) super-Yang-Mills theory in three-dimensions is expected to make the latter flow into infrared super-conformal phases. We address this problem holographically by studying the effect of the Romans mass on the D2-brane near-horizon geometry. Working in a consistent, effective four-dimensional setting provided...

We show that the value of chiral conductivities associated with anomalous transport is universal in a general class of strongly coupled quantum field theories that admit a gravitational holographic dual in the large N limit. Our result only applies to theories in the presence of external gauge fields with no dynamical gluon fields. On the gravity side the result follows from near...

We study the holographic dual of a (2 + 1)-dimensional s-wave superfluid that breaks an abelian U(1) × U(1) global symmetry group to the diagonal U(1) V . The model is inspired by Sen’s tachyonic action, and the operator that condenses transforms in the bifundamental representation of the symmetry group. We focus on two configurations: the first one describes a marginal operator...

This study investigated a methodology based on image processing and statistics to characterize and model the deformation upon controlled and uniform magnetic field and the relaxation under zero field of droplets observed in aqueous solutions of sodium alginate incorporating magnetic maghemite nanoparticles stabilized by adsorption of citrate ions. The changes of droplet geometry...

A model consisting of (d+1)-dimensional gravity coupled to spacetime filling charged branes is used to study the effects of backreaction. The charged black holes arising from this simple model reflect the non-linearity of the gauge field and are thermodynamically stable. By analysing fluctuations of the system we corroborate that at low values of the temperature (or large...

We construct analytically the gravity duals of three-dimensional, super Yang-Mills-type theories with \( \mathcal{N}=1 \) supersymmetry coupled to N f quark flavors. The backreaction of the quarks on the color degrees of freedom is included, and corresponds on the gravity side to the backreaction of N f D6-branes on the background of N D2-branes. The D6-branes are smeared over...

A large set of relevant deformations of the ABJM field theory defined on a stack of M2 branes is captured holographically by D = 4 \( \mathcal{N} \) = 8 SO(8)-gauged supergravity, which has accordingly been applied to study renormalisation group (RG) flows of the field theory between distinct superconformal phases. Recently, it has been discovered that this supergravity is not...

We construct the gravity dual of three-dimensional, SU(N c) super Yang-Mills theory with N f flavors of dynamical quarks in the presence of a non-zero quark density N q. The supergravity solutions include the backreaction of N c color D2-branes and N f flavor D6-branes with N q units of electric flux on their worldvolume. For massless quarks, the solutions depend non-trivially...

We study the gravitational duals of d-dimensional Yang-Mills theories with d ≤ 6 in the presence of an \( \mathcal{O}\left({N}^2\right) \) density of heavy quarks, with N the number of colors. For concreteness we focus on maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills, but our results apply to a larger class of theories with or without supersymmetry. The gravitational solutions describe...

We construct analytic solutions describing black holes and black branes in asymptotically Lifshitz spacetimes with arbitrary dynamical exponent z and for arbitrary number of dimensions. The model considered consists of Einstein gravity with negative cosmological constant, a scalar, and N U(1) gauge fields with dilatonic-like couplings. We study the phase diagrams and...

We study the AC optical and Hall conductivities of Dp/Dq-brane intersections in the probe approximation and use sum-rules to study various associated transport coefficients. We determine that the presence of massive fundamental matter, as compared to massless fundamental matter described holographically by a theory with no dimensional defects, reduces the plasma frequency. We...

We study the effective geometry felt by the fluctuations of open strings living on the worldvolume of probe D-branes in the presence of background electromagnetic fields. This is captured by an effective action consisting of a Maxwell term and a topological term, with the role of the metric played by the open string metric. Studying generalized Eddington-Finkelstein coordinates...

We present the string dual to SU(N c ) \( \mathcal{N} = 4 \) SYM, coupled to N f massless fundamental flavors, at finite temperature and baryon density. The solution is determined by two dimensionless parameters, both depending on the ’t Hooft coupling λ h at the scale set by the temperature T: ϵ h ∼ λ h N f /N c , weighting the backreaction of the flavor fields and \( \tilde...
