Massive study of magnetized unquenched ABJM

Abstract: We study the physics of a magnetized probe D6-brane in the ABJM theory with unquenched massive flavor. We analyze the effect of the mass of the background branes in the magnetic catalysis of chiral symmetry breaking, and also the effect of the magnetic field on the meson spectrum. Besides, we obtain a non-commutative version of the background via a TsT rotation, which has an NSNS B2 field turned on, as an intermediate step towards a fully backreacted solution. In addition, we include new analytical solutions, perturbative in flavor, for the background functions.

Nonlinear effects and coarse-graining in general relativity

Abstract: I will discuss the nonlinear effects of general relativity which appear if we perform the coarse-graining of the fine structure of a solution. In particular I will discuss the effects of nested inhomogeneities extending over many scales.
