Nuclear Physics & RIKEN Theory Seminar

"Viscosity of Strongly Interacting Fermi Gases"

Presented by Mohit Randeria, Ohio State University

Friday, May 14, 2010, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Transport in strongly interacting systems, which may not support well-defined quasiparticle excitations, is a subject of great interest in diverse fields ranging from condensed matter physics to nuclear physics and string theory. In this talk I will describe recent work on the viscosity of non-relativistic quantum fluids, with a particular focus on strongly interacting ultracold Fermi gases. I will discuss exact nonperturbative results based on spectral functions and sum rules, and conclude with a proposal for a spectroscopic measurement of the shear viscosity spectral function in the unitary Fermi gas.
