**ABSTRACT:**We consider a four-dimensional $ \mathcal{N}=2 $ gauged supergravity coupled to matter fields. The model is obtained by a U(1) gauging of a charged hypermultiplet and therefore it is suitable for the study of holographic superconductivity. The potential has a topologically flat direction and the parameter running on this “moduli space” labels the new superconducting black holes. The phase diagram of the theory is studied and the zero temperature solutions are constructed. The model has rich dynamics. The retrograde condensate is just a special case in the new class of black holes. The calculation of the entanglement entropy makes manifest the properties of a generic solution and the superconductor at zero temperature is in a confined cohesive phase. The parameter running on the topologically flat direction is a marginal coupling in the dual field theory. We prove this statement by considering the way double trace deformations are treated in the AdS/CFT correspondence. Finally, we comment on a possible connection, in the context of gauge/gravity dualities, between the geometry of the scalar manifold in $ \mathcal{N}=2 $ supergravity models and the space of marginal deformations of the dual field theory.Journal of High Energy Physics 06/2012; 2012(10). · 5.62 Impact Factor -

**ABSTRACT:**We introduce a new framework for constructing black hole solutions that are holographically dual to strongly coupled field theories with explicitly broken translation invariance. It relies on the gravitational theory having a continuous global symmetry and leads to constructions that involve solving ODEs. We study in detail $D=4$ Einstein-Maxwell theory coupled to a complex scalar field with a simple mass term. We construct black holes dual to metallic phases which exhibit a Drude-type peak in the optical conductivity, but there is no evidence of an intermediate scaling that has been reported in other holographic lattice constructions. We also construct black holes dual to insulating phases which exhibit a suppression of spectral weight at low frequencies. We show that the model also admits a novel $AdS_3\times\mathbb{R}$ solution.11/2013; -

[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

**ABSTRACT:**We construct electrically charged, asymptotically $AdS_5$ black hole solutions that are dual to $d=4$ CFTs in a superfluid phase with either p-wave or $(p+ip)$-wave order. The two types of black holes have non-vanishing charged two-form in the bulk and appear at the same critical temperature in the unbroken phase. Both the p-wave and the $(p+ip)$-wave phase can be thermodynamically preferred, depending on the mass and charge of the two-form, and there can also be first order transitions between them. The p-wave black holes have a helical structure and some of them exhibit the phenomenon of pitch inversion as the temperature is decreased. Both the p-wave and the $(p+ip)$-wave black holes have zero entropy density ground states at zero temperature and we identify some new ground states which exhibit scaling symmetry, including a novel scenario for the emergence of conformal symmetry in the IR.Classical and Quantum Gravity 10/2013; 31(5). · 3.56 Impact Factor
