Using the AdS/CFT correspondence we find a gravity solution which supplements the well known large proper-time expansion by exponentially-suppressed sectors corresponding to quasinormal modes of the AdS black-brane.

We use resurgence techniques on the resulting transseries to show that all the information encoded in the nonhydrodynamic sectors can be recovered from the original hydrodynamic gradient expansion.

Abstract

We show that the late-time expansion of the energy density of N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills plasma at infinite coupling undergoing Bjorken flow takes the form of a multi-parameter transseries. Using the AdS/CFT correspondence we find a gravity solution which supplements the well known large proper-time expansion by exponentially-suppressed sectors corresponding to quasinormal modes of the AdS black-brane. The full solution also requires the presence of further sectors which have a natural interpretation as couplings between these modes. The exponentially-suppressed sectors represent nonhydrodynamic contributions to the energy density of the plasma. We use resurgence techniques on the resulting transseries to show that all the information encoded in the nonhydrodynamic sectors can be recovered from the original hydrodynamic gradient expansion.
