"Viscous Velocity Gradient Correction to Thermal Photon Emission Rate at Strong Coupling"

Presented by Kiminad Mamo, University of Illinois at Chicago

Thursday, November 19, 2015, 12:30 pm — Building 510 Room 2-160

We compute the correction to the thermal photon emission rate in first order of shear components of fluid velocity gradients in near-equilibrium hydrodynamic plasma at strong coupling regime using the real-time Schwinger-Keldysh formalism in AdS/CFT correspondence. We find that the gradient correction to the thermal photon emission rate at strong coupling is about 0.3 - 0.4 times of the equilibrium rate.
