Description

Gauge/gravity duality (or "holography") allows one to calculate
highly non-trivial far from equilibrium dynamics in strongly coupled
gauge theory --- provided one can solve asymptotically anti-de
Sitter initial value problems in higher dimensional gravity. Recent
results and work in progress in this area will be discussed,
focusing on calculations motivated by the physics of heavy ion
collisions and thermal gauge theories.
