Quantum Anomalies Program Seminar: Mikhail Stephanov, UIC

Title: Lorentz invariance in chiral kinetic theory Speaker: Mikhail Stephanov, UIC Date: Thursday, March 27, 2014 Time: 1:00pm-2:30pm Place: Seminar Room 313, Simons Center       [box, type=”download”]Watch the video. [/box] Abstract: I shall discuss how Lorentz invariance is realized (nontrivially) in the classical motion of massless spin-1/2 particles and explore implications for the chiral kinetic theory.

Quantum Anomalies Program Seminar: Kristan Jensen

Title: Deriving anomaly-induced response from thermal equilibrium. Part II Speaker: Kristan Jensen, Stony Brook University Date: Thursday, March 20, 2014 Time: 1:00pm-2:30pm Place: Seminar Room 313, Simons Center Abstract: Now that we believe that anomalies manifest themselves through macroscopic transport in thermal states, I’ll show you how to derive that transport from basic considerations of Euclidean field theory. To do […]

Quantum Anomalies Program Seminar: Ismail Zahed

Title: Chiral and Gravitational Anomalies on Fermi surfaces Speaker: Ismail Zahed Date: Monday, February 10, 2014 Time: 4:00pm-5:30pm Place: Seminar Room 313, Simons Center       [box, type=”download”]Watch the video.[/box] Abstract: A Fermi surface threaded by a Berry phase can be described by the Wess-Zumino-Witten (WZW) term. After gauging, it produces a five-dimensional Chern-Simons term in the action. I […]

Title: “An Introduction to Holographic Superconductivity” Speaker: Chris Herzog, Stony Brook University Date: Thursday January 30 Time: 10:30am Place: Seminar Room 313, Simons Center       [box, type=”download”]Watch the video.[/box] Abstract: Gubser, Hartnoll, Horowitz and I proposed the holographic superconductor as a model where one might be able to learn something about strongly correlated many-body systems using gauge-gravity duality. I […]

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. […]

Quantum Anomalies Program Seminar: Gökçe Basar, Stony Brook University

Title: “Chiral anomaly, kinetic theory, and the Chiral Magnetic/Vortical Effect” Speaker: Gökçe Basar, Stony Brook University Date: Thursday January 23 Time: 10:30am Place: Seminar Room 313, Simons Center Abstract: I will review the kinetic theory description of chiral fermions, which is suitable for systems that possess weakly interacting quasi-particles. In this picture, the chiral anomaly is captured by the Berry phase. […]

Quantum Anomalies Program Seminar: Tigran Kalaydzhyan, Stony Brook University

Title: “Intro: Holographic fluids and superfluids” Speaker: Tigran Kalaydzhyan, Stony Brook University Date: Thursday January 16 Time: 1:00pm Place: Seminar Room 313, Simons Center Abstract: I will present a pedagogical introduction to the fluid-gravity duality. I will start from the intuitive description of the AdS/CFT-correspondence without any use of the string theory, and describe the duality dictionary most suitable for the […]
