Holographic Schwinger effect with a moving D3-brane

Regular Article - Theoretical Physics

Abstract.

We study the Schwinger effect with a moving D3-brane in a \(\mathcal{N}=4\) SYM plasma with the aid of AdS/CFT correspondence. We discuss the test particle pair moving transverse and parallel to the plasma wind, respectively. It is found that for both cases the presence of velocity tends to increase the Schwinger effect. In addition, the velocity has a stronger influence on the Schwinger effect when the pair moves transverse to the plasma wind rather than parallel.
