# Neutron star physics, neutron star mergers, near-extremal black holes and effective theories near absolute zero.

This project involves using techniques from the AdS/CFT correspondence (known also as holography) to understand

(a) The non-trivial phases in the QCD phase diagram, involving non zero baryon number density as well as non-zero isospin density.

(b) The statics and dynamics in non-trivial phases relevant for neutron stars, where very low temperatures are relevant.
