"The Spin of Holographic Electrons at Nonzero Density and Temperature"
I will provide some general motivation for using gauge string duality (AdS/CFT) to study the physics of quantum phase transitions and strange metals. Then I will describe some recent work investigating the role of spin in holographic models of Fermi and non Fermi liquids. In particular, I will show the mark spin-orbit coupling leaves on the dispersion relation. Additionally, I will show how spin affects relaxation times.
