<b>HET SEMINAR</b><br>Gravitational Instability in AdS and the Thermalization of Dual Gauge Theories

335 West Hall

We discuss gravitational collapse in asymptotically global anti de-Sitter space times. Holographic correspondence of Maldacena relates this dynamical gravitational phenomena to problem of equilibration of strongly coupled gauge theories. We review progress in this line of research and discuss ongoing projects.
