Throats with Faster Holographic Phase Transitions
20Show room on map
We study the dynamics of the finite-temperature phase transition for warped Randall-Sundrum-like throat models related to the Klebanov-Tseytlin solution. We find that the transition successfully completes over a wider parameter range than for Goldberger-Wise stabilized RS models, and the throat has a reliable gravitational description even when the number of infrared degrees of freedom is small. We also comment on aspects of the thermal phase transition in models where electroweak or GUT gauge symmetry breaking is achieved via boundary conditions.
