Jan Albert - The Abrikosov vortex in curved space

It is known that when coupled to gravity, 't Hooft-Polyakov monopoles can hold a Schwarzschild black hole at their core, realizing a hairy magnetic black hole. In this talk we will try to construct a similar object with Abrikosov vortices. So we will study the Abrikosov vortex in curved space, first in the asymptotically flat case and later in AdS, discussing both singular and non-singular solutions. We will end with some comments on the interpretation of these objects in the context of AdS/CFT, touching on the story of the holographic superconductor.
