**Holographic Quantum Matter**

by S. A. Hartnoll, A. Lucas, S. Sachdev

**Publisher**: arXiv.org 2018**Number of pages**: 178

**Description**:

We present a review of theories of states of quantum matter without quasiparticle excitations. Solvable examples of such states are provided through a holographic duality with gravitational theories in an emergent spatial dimension. We review the duality between gravitational backgrounds and the various states of quantum matter which live on the boundary.
