Abstract

The properties of a superfluid phase transition with a d-wave order parameter in a strongly interacting field theory with gravity dual are considered. In the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence, this amounts to writing down an action for a charged, massive spin two field on a background, and I will discuss all technical problems. In the second part I will show that coupling bulk fermions to the spin two field and studying the fermionic two-point function, one recovers interesting features of d-wave superconductors, like d-wave gap, Dirac nodes and Fermi arcs.
