Monopole correlation functions and holographic phases of matter in 2+1 dimensions

Abstract: The strong coupling dynamics of a 2+1 dimensional U(1) gauge theory coupled to charged matter can be holographically modeled via a top-down construction with intersecting D3- and D5-branes. I will talk about our recent paper 1607.04059, where we calculate the correlation functions of monopole operators, dual to magnetically charged particles in the bulk theory, in such a model. We explore the resulting phase diagram when the model is taken to a finite temperature and charge density.
