Title: Holographic Quark-Gluon Plasmas

Abstract: I will present a class of analytic supergravity solutions dual to strongly coupled thermal gauge theories coupled to massless fundamental
flavors. The solutions include the backreaction of the
latter up to second order in the parameter that weighs the internal
flavor loops. I will discuss how the fundamental fields a ffect the thermodynamical and hydrodynamical properties of the plasmas
as well as their interaction with external probes.
