Two Universal String Predictions for Heavy Ion Collisions


I will explain the connection between string theory and the quark-gluon plasma created in heavy ion collision experiments like RHIC and (in the near future) LHC. To illustrate the connection, I will describe two universal predictions that apply to any strongly coupled plasma with a string dual. I will discuss the circumstances under which they may also apply to the real-world quark-gluon plasma and under which they may be tested at RHIC and/or LHC
