Non-relativisitic holography for quantum critical systems
We consider gravity duals for 2+1 dimensional quantum critical points with anisotropic scaling, where physics at finite temperature and fixed charge density is described in terms of charged Lifshitz black branes in 3+1 dimensions. We use a combination of numerics and exact solutions to study equilibrium thermodynamics of a holographic system exhibiting Lifshitz scaling, and also thermalization following a quench.
