Abstract: We examine the proposal to make quantitative comparisons between the stronglycoupled quark-gluon plasma and holographic descriptions of conformal fieldtheory. In this note, we calculate corrections to certain transportcoefficients appearing in second-order hydrodynamics from higher curvatureterms to the dual gravity theory. We also clarify how these results might beconsistently applied in comparisons with the sQGP.
