Holographic dualities are at the forefront of contemporary physics research, peering into the fundamental nature of our universe and providing best attempt answers to humankind's bold questions about basic physical phenomena.

Yet, the concepts, ideas and mathematical rigors associated with these dualities have long been reserved for the specific field researchers and experts. This book shatters this long held paradigm by bringing several aspects of holography research into the class room, starting at the college physics level and moving up from there.


Leo Rodriguez received his PhD in physics from the University of Iowa in 2011, after which he served as an HHMI postdoctoral research fellow at Grinnell College and held subsequent faculty positions at Grinnell College and Assumption College. Leo rejoined the physics faculty at Grinnell College in the fall of 2018. Leo's research interests focus on the thermodynamic properties of black holes, how they relate to quantum gravity and how they are encoded in dual conformal field theories.
