Heavy Quark Propagation in an AdS/CFT plasma

Jorge Casalderrey-Solana

LBNL

Work in collaboration with Derek Teaney

Outline

Langevin dynamics for heavy quarks

Calibration of the noise

Broadening from Wilson Lines

AdS/CFT computation

Broadening at finite velocity

Langevin Dynamics

Heavy Quark M>>T moves slowly

de Broglie w. l.

HQ is classical

Random (white) noise

Einstein relations

Medium properties

Heavy Quarks at RHIC

The Langevin model to is used to describe charm and bottom quarks

Fits to data allow to extract the diffusion coefficient

(Moore & Teaney,

van Hees & Rapp)

How to Calibrate the Noise

In perturbation theory

But we cannot use diagrams!

We solve the small fluctuation problem

Broadening and Diffusion in AdS/CFT

In perturbation theory

Depends explicitly on Nc. Different from h/s

It is not universal!

To compare with QCD => rescale the degrees of freedom

k!

Drag valid for all p !

(Herzog, Karch, Kovtun, Kozcaz and Yaffe ; Gubser)

Broadening => repeat fluctuation problem

Depends on the energy of the probe!

Conclusions

We have provided a “non-perturbative” definition of the momentum broadening as derivatives of a Wilson Line

This definition is suited to compute k in N=4 SYM by means of the AdS/CFT correspondence.

The calculated k scales as and takes much larger values than the perturbative extrapolation for QCD.

The results agree, via the Einstein relations, with the computations of the drag coefficient. This can be considered as an explicit check that AdS/CFT satisfy the fluctuation dissipation theorem.

The momentum broadening k at finite v diverges as .

k as a Retarded Correlator

k is defined as an unordered correlator:

From ZHQ the only unordered correlator is

Defining:

In the w0 limit the contour dependence disappears :

E(t1,y1)Dt1dy1

Since in k there is no time order:
