Speaker(s): 

I will describe numerical simulations of quenches in AdS-CMT superconductors  where we are able to construct a dynamical phase diagram for the system. I will describe how the late time behaviour is
understood in terms of the quasinormal modes of the system, and how a rather generic behaviour of the pole structure there leads to interesting physical consequences that have an analog in condensed matter calculations using integrable models.

Superradiance in black hole physics is responsible for a chief number of interesting and spectacular effects. Here I will discuss some attempts at understand the behavior of massive bosonic fields around rotating black holes, with focus on superradiance.

Speaker(s): 

In the context of the possible existence of large extra dimensions, and also the context of the AdS-CFT correspondence, there has been much interest in black holes solutions in theories of gravity and matter that are exotic - they might live in spacetime dimension other than 4, or have exotic matter and boundary conditions. I will review the types of physics that are accessible by studying such exotic black holes, ranging from LHC phenomenology to potential applications to condensed matter physics (via the AdS-CFT correspondence). One common theme is that traditional analytic methods
