Abstract: Using the AdS/CFT correspondence for strongly coupled gauge theories, we calculate thermalization of mesons caused by a time-dependent change of a baryon number chemical potential. We discuss implication of our results to RHIC and LHC experiments. If time permitted, other properties of nuclear forces derived from AdS/CFT are also discussed.
