Holography, hydrodynamics and the transseries expansion

Abstract:

The transseries is an ansatz for generating solutions to classical problems which are both perturbative and non-perturbative in some limit of parameter space. In this thesis we apply this technique to three systems described by classical gravity with relevance to holographic plasmas of strongly coupled gauge theories.

To begin we compute the gradient expansion to arbitrarily high orders for an N=4 Super Yang-Mills (SYM) plasma at infinite 't Hooft coupling undergoing Bjorken evolu...
