Nonlinear optics and the holographic duality

I will introduce the holographic duality between general relativity and condensed matter physics. This amazing conjecture leads to the description of certain materials in an exact, non-perturbative fashion. I will apply the duality in nonlinear optics for the first time, calculating the optical conductivity of graphene as a function of the light intensity.
