Chiral Gross-Neveu at finite density using holography Rohvarger, Alexander


A gravitational dual description to the Chiral Gross-Neveu model with infinite number of fermion fields is examined at finite fermion density. Under a number of simplifying assumptions, it is determined qualitatively that above a critical density, chiral symmetry is restored. The QFT side is reviewed as well. Using a method that does not require a limit from finite temperature situation, nor bosonization techniques, it is shown that, on the QFT side, symmetry is restored above a critical value of the chemical potential.
