Abstract

Holographic superconductors provide tractable models for the onset of superconductivity in strongly coupled theories. They have some features in common with experimentally studied nonconventional superconductors. I will review the physics of holographic superconductors and go on to show that many such models are to be found in the string landscape of AdS_4 vacua.
