    1.1 Sean Hartnoll: Strongly coupled metals and insulators

    Holography is a fantastic tool for doing controlled calculations in strongly coupled theories. However, in order to know what to compute and how these results fit into a century of condensed matter physics, it is necessary to understand clearly the essential aspects of quantum field theory at finite charge density. This talk is about the effective field theory description of metals and insulators. I will explain how holography has led to new ways of thinking about what it means to be a metal or an insulator.

    1.2 Elias Kiritsis: The Chern-Simons Diffusion Rate in Holographic QCD

    In (3 + 1)-dimensional SU(Nc) Yang-Mills (YM) theory, the Chern-Simons diffusion rate, ΓCS , is de- termined by the zero-momentum, zero-frequency limit of the retarded two-point function of the CP-odd topological operator tr[F ∧F ], with F the YM field strength. The Chern-Simons diffusion rate is a crucial ingredient for many CP-odd phenomena, including the chiral magnetic effect in the quark-gluon plasma. We compute ΓCS in the high-temperature, deconfined phase of Improved Holographic QCD, a refined holographic model for large-Nc YM theory. Our result for ΓCS/(sT), where s is entropy density and T is temperature, varies slowly at high T and increases
