"Generalizations of relativistic hydrodynamics"

Presented by Piotr Surowka, Harvard

Friday, June 3, 2016, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Recent developments have shown that relativistic Landau and Lifshitz hydrodynamics does not possess the most general structure. It has to generalized to account for new phenomena. I will show how to do that in two directions. One will include parity-odd transport contributions connected to anomalies, the other will capture a dissipative fluid coupled to non-Abelian degrees of freedom such as color currents or spin currents. I will mention possible applications to quark-gluon plasma and condensed matter systems.
