**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.

The following notes are the basis for a graduate course. They are oriented towards the application of group theory to particle physics, although some of it can be used for general quantum mechanics. They have no pretense of mathematical rigor.
