The Standard Model (SM) of the particle physics, based on the gauge group SU(3) ×SU(2)L × U(1)Y , has been a successful theory which provides consistent description of all phenomena ranging from the nuclear beta decay to known processes at the high energy colliders like the LHC which operates at the TeV scale. Nevertheless, the SM is considered to be only a low energy (weak scale) theory and not a theory that is valid up to an energy scale (∼ 1019 GeV) where the effects of gravity are expected to be strong. The reasons for this view include the sensitivity...

The idea of holography [1, 2] finds a concrete realization in form of the AdS/CFT correspondence [3, 4]. This duality relates a field theory with conformal symmetries to quantum gravity living in one higher dimension. In this thesis we study aspects of black hole quasinormal modes, higher spin theories and entanglement entropy in the context of this duality. In almost all cases we have been able to subject the duality to some precision tests.
Quasinormal modes encode the spectrum of black holes and the timescale of pertur
bations therein [5]. From the dual CFT viewpoint they are the poles of retarded...

Ultrarelativisitic heavy ion collisions produce quark gluon plasmaa hot and dense soup of deconfined quarks and gluons akin to the early universe. We study two models in the context of these collisions namely, Polyakov Quark Meson Model (PQM) and Hadron Resonance Gas Model (HRGM).The PQM Model provides us with a simple and intuitive understanding of the QCD equation of state and thermodynamics at non zero temperature and baryon density while the HRGM is the principle model to analyse the hadron yields measured in these experiments across the entire range of beam energies.
We study the effect of including the commonly...

There is a growing consensus among physicists that the classical notion of spacetime has to be drastically revised in order to nd a consistent formulation of quantum mechanics and gravity. One such nontrivial attempt comprises of replacing functions of continuous spacetime coordinates with functions over noncommutative algebra. Dynamics on such noncommutative spacetimes (noncommutative theories) are of great interest for a variety of reasons among the physicists. Additionally arguments combining quantum uncertainties with classical gravity provide an alternative motivation for their study, and it is hoped that these theories can provide a selfconsistent deformation of ordinary quantum field theories at small...
