Basic aspects of holography for theories with hyperscaling violation

Recently there have been a lot of interest in the extention of the AdS/CFT holography to a wider class of spacetimes with dynamical exponent z and hyperscaling violation theta. One can use the holography dictionary for this new setting to investigate basic properties of the dual field theory by investigating quantities on the gravity side. The talk is based on arXiv:1201.1905.
