Gravitation, strings, and strongly interactive matter

What is the connection between materials with weak and strong gravitational interactions?

Many useful materials, such as high-temperature superconductors, have properties that arise from the strong interactions between elementary building blocks. This research will provide a theoretical description of such properties by making a connection with models that have weak gravitational interactions.
