"Self-similar evolution for inverse cascade of magnetic helicity driven by the chiral anomaly"

Presented by Yi Yin, Brookhaven National Laboratory

Thursday, June 18, 2015, 12:30 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

We show by solving Maxwell's equations in the presence of chiral magnetic current that the chiral anomaly would induce the inverse cascade of magnetic helicity. We found at late time, the evolution of magnetic helicity spectrum is self-similar and axial charge decays as a power law in time. We visualize how a linked magnetic configuration would evolve into a knotted configuration in real space during such evolution.
