Translational Symmetry Breaking in Holographic Strange Metals
In this thesis, we have used numerical approaches to study the effects of translational symmetry breaking on strange metallic systems as realised by the holographic duality.

This involves solving for large-scale coupled partial differential equations, describing the physics of corrugated black holes in negatively curved space-times.
We show that the strong-coupling nature of the physics of these holographic systems produces some unique behaviours, which are suggestively close to experimental observations that have been done in the lab. We speculate that strong-coupling physics is what is at the heart of the mysteries that shroud the strange metal.
