QCD at finite temperature and magnetic field from holography

Using holography, we study the effects of finite temperature (T) and finite constant magnetic field (B) within QCD by studying how the chiral condensate behaves as a function of T and B. I'll first revisit the general approaches to using the holographic method to study QCD-like theories before introducing the Dynamic AdS/QCD model. We show this bottom-up approach within Dynamic AdS/QCD is able to predict and reproduce the broad behaviours indicated within lattice calculations on how the condensate varies with temperature and magnetic field.
