Conformal non-relativistic hydrodynamics from gravity.

Rangamani, Mukund and Ross, Simon F. and Son, D.T. and Thompson, Ethan G. (2009) 'Conformal non-relativistic hydrodynamics from gravity.', Journal of high energy physics., 2009 (01). 075.


We show that the recently constructed holographic duals of conformal non-relativistic theories behave hydrodynamically at long distances, and construct the gravitational dual of fluid flows in a long-wavelength approximation. We compute the thermal conductivity of the holographic conformal non-relativistic fluid. The corresponding Prandtl number is equal to one.
