String theory technique known as gauge/gravity duality relates transport properties of strongly coupled model plasmas (their viscosities, thermal conductivities, diffusion constants) to quasinormal spectra of black holes in dual curved higher dimensional spacetimes. By computing transport coefficients for these theoretical models, one gets qualitative insights into physics of strongly coupled hot and dense nuclear matter created in heavy ion collision experiments at RHIC and LHC as well as physics of cold dense matter. We shall review (at a relatively non-technical level) the current status and perspectives of these nonperturbative methods.
