AdS/CFT for phenomenologists
An esoteric word, "AdS/CFT" in the title just stands for a certain duality between quantum theory and gravity theory. Depending on the context, it may be called the AdS(Anti-de Sitter Space)/CFT(Conformal Field Theory) correspondence, gauge/gravity duality, or holographic principle(method). This lecture focuses on phenomenological aspects of "AdS/CFT". In particular, the main theme is to propose (not prove) how to describe strongly correlated quantum systems in terms of classical gravity theories. For example, some properties of quark-gluon plasma and strange metal (non-Fermi liquid) will be discussed. These belong to the research fields called AdS/QCD(Quantum Chromodynamics) and AdS/CMT(Condensed Matter Theory), which will not sound esoteric by now, hopefully.
