Holography for Non-Relativistic Systems


I will give an overview of some recent developments on Schroedinger and Lifshitz holography. These are deformations of the AdS/CFT correspondence in which an asymptotically AdS space-time is replaced by an asymptotically Schroedinger or Lifshitz space-time. These space-times have non-relativistic isometry groups and are expected to be holographically dual to non-relativistic systems. I will review the status (successes and open questions) of these proposals.
