Quantum Anomalies Program Seminar: Gustavo Monteiro, Stony Brook University

Title: “Relativistic Hydrodynamics in the presence of Anomalies”
Speaker: Gustavo Monteiro, Stony Brook University
Date: Monday January 27
Time: 4:00pm
Place: Seminar Room 313, Simons Center

 

Abstract: I will review the first order relativistic hydrodynamics and discuss the possible frame redefinitions.
Later on, I will introduce the chiral (gauge) anomaly in order to modify the constitutive equations. Following Son & Sorowka derivation, we find that entropy and charge currents acquire corrections which are proportional to the magnetic field seen at the comoving frame and vorticity. In particular, these transport coefficients are obtained in terms of the chiral (gauge) and gravitational anomaly coefficients.
