Computational Holography with Its Applications
Dr. Hong-Bao Zhang

After a brief review of current status of quantum gravity, I will focus largely on its most successful formulation in which the gravity in d+1 dimensional asymptotic AdS spacetime is dual to d dimensional quantum field theory without gravity. As any other unification in the history of physics, this AdS/CFT correspondence has been finding it's very applications in addressing some hard quantum many body problems, ranging from QCD to condensed matter physics by mapping them into their much readily attacked gravity duals, which makes this frontier highly interdisciplinary. I will sketch such applications and explain why numerical simulation plays a more and more important role in this exploration. In particular, I like to show you its very particular application to quantum turbulence in superfluid.
