arxiv: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology | High Energy Physics::Theory | Condensed Matter::Superconductivity
I review recent work on holographic superconductivity with Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity, and show how the critical temperature of the superconductor depends on both gravitational backreaction and the Gauss-Bonnet parameter, using both analytic and numerical arguments. I also review computations of the conductivity, finding the energy gap, and demonstrating that there is no universal gap ratio, $\omega_g/T_c$, for these superconductors.
