Speaker: Thomas Kelley, University of Minnesota
Subject: The Thermodynamics of a 5D Gravity-Dilaton-Tachyon Solution

The LHC has started heavy-ion collisions. Such collisions
create the so-called quark-gluon plasma (QGP). I discuss a
finite-temperature holographic model with a soft-wall geometry that may be able to analytically describe QGP. The 5D model is a black-hole dynamical solution of Einstein's equations that is used to calculate the thermal properties of the corresponding 4D gauge theory.
