Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Anomalous Transport from Kubo Formulas

Presented by Karl Landsteiner, CSIC Madrid

24 February 2012 13:00 in CM221

Chiral anomalies are some of the most fundamental properties of relativistic
quantum field theories. At finite density and temperature they give rise
to new dissipationless transport phenomena. These are of direct
relevance to heavy ion collisions and induce the so called Chiral Magnetic Effect. I will show how the anomalous transport coefficients, the chiral magnetic and the chiral vortical conductivity can be studied via Kubo formulas at weak and strong coupling.
