Strings with Finite Endpoint Mass

Presented by Dr. William HOROWITZ on 6 Jul 2016 from 14:00 to 14:40
Type: Oral Presentation
Track: Track G - Theoretical and Computational Physics

Abstract

We compute the motion of strings whose endpoints are coupled to massive point particles in an AdS-Schwarzschild geometry. Our work generalizes the usual AdS/CFT dictionary correspondence between a fundamental heavy quark in a field theory and its representation in the string theory. We then compute the stopping distance and differential energy lost by our heavy quark strongly coupled to an N = 4 SYM plasma via the AdS/CFT correspondence, compare the result to weak-coupling calculations, and comment on the relevance of our work to the quark-gluon plasma phenomenology investigated at the multi-billion euro Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
