High Energy Physics in the LHC Era, Valparaiso, Chile, 2012 “Quarks – 2014”, Suzdal, Russia, 2-8 June, 2014 The chiral magnetic effect: from quark-gluon plasma to Dirac semimetals D. Kharzeev 1

2 What is Chiral Magnetic Effect?
Chirality imbalance + Magnetic field = Electric current Talks at “Quarks 2014”: V. Braguta, T. Kalaydzhyan, A. Kotov 2

3 Quantum anomalies Anomalies: The classical symmetry of the Lagrangian is broken by quantum effects - examples: chiral symmetry - axial anomaly scale symmetry - scale anomaly Anomalies imply correlations between currents: e.g. decay A if A, V are background fields, V is not conserved! V V 3

4 Quantum anomalies In classical background fields (E and B), chiral
anomaly induces a collective motion in the Dirac sea A 4

strongly coupled N=4 SYM plasma in an external U(1)R magnetic field through holography G. Basar, DK, Phys Rev D, arXiv: weak field: strong field increases the rate: 19 dimensional reduction

20 Holographic chiral magnetic effect: the strong coupling regime (AdS/CFT)
Weak coupling Strong coupling H.-U. Yee, arXiv: , JHEP 0911:085, 2009; V. Rubakov, arXiv: , ... D.K., H. Warringa Phys Rev D80 (2009) A. Rebhan, A.Schmitt, S.Stricker JHEP 0905, 084 (2009), G.Lifshytz, M.Lippert, arXiv: ;.A. Gorsky, P. Kopnin, A. Zayakin, arXiv: , T. Kalaydzhyan, I. Kirsch ‘11,.. CME persists at strong coupling - hydrodynamical formulation?

21 Hydrodynamics and anomalies
Hydrodynamics: an effective low-energy TOE. States that the response of the fluid to slowly varying perturbations is completely determined by conservation laws (energy, momentum, charge, ...) Conservation laws are a consequence of symmetries of the underlying theory What happens to hydrodynamics when these symmetries are broken by quantum effects (anomalies of QCD and QED)? 21

22 Chiral MagnetoHydroDynamics (CMHD) - relativistic hydrodynamics with triangle anomalies and external electromagnetic fields First order (in the derivative expansion) formulation: D. Son and P. Surowka, arXiv: Constraining the new anomalous transport coefficients: positivity of the entropy production rate, CME (for chirally imbalanced matter) 22

23 Chiral MagnetoHydroDynamics (CMHD) - relativistic hydrodynamics with triangle anomalies and external electromagnetic fields First order hydrodynamics has problems with causality and is numerically unstable, so second order formulation is necessary; Complete second order formulation of CMHD with anomaly: DK and H.-U. Yee, ; Phys Rev D Many new transport coefficients - use conformal/Weyl invariance; still 18 independent transport coefficients related to the anomaly. 15 that are specific to 2nd order: new 23 Many new anomaly-induced phenomena!

24 Is there another guiding principle?
Chiral MagnetoHydroDynamics (CMHD) - relativistic hydrodynamics with triangle anomalies and external electromagnetic fields DK and H.-U. Yee, Positivity of entropy production - still too many unconstrained transport coefficients... Is there another guiding principle? 24

25 No entropy production from T-even anomalous terms
DK and H.-U. Yee, P-odd P-odd T-odd P-even T-odd P-odd cf Ohmic conductivity: T-odd, dissipative P-odd effect! T-even Non-dissipative current! (time-reversible - no arrow of time, no entropy production) 25

26 No entropy production from P-odd anomalous terms
DK and H.-U. Yee, Mirror reflection: entropy decreases ? Entropy grows Decrease is ruled out by 2nd law of thermodynamics 26

27 No entropy production from T-even anomalous terms
1st order hydro: Son-Surowka results are reproduced 2nd order hydro: 13 out of 18 transport coefficients are computed; but is the “guiding principle” correct? Can we check the resulting relations between the transport coefficients? e.g. DK and H.-U. Yee, 27

28 The fluid/gravity correspondence
Long history: Hawking, Bekenstein, Unruh; Damour ’78; Thorne, Price, MacDonald ’86 (membrane paradigm) Recent developments motivated by AdS/CFT: Policastro, Kovtun, Son, Starinets ’01 (quantum bound) Bhattacharya, Hubeny, Minwalla, Rangamani ’08 (fluid/gravity correspondence) Some of the transport coefficients of 2nd order hydro computed; enough to check some of our relations, e.g. J. Erdmenger et al, ; N. Banerjee et al, Other holographic checks work as well: It works 28 DK and H.-U. Yee,

29 The chiral magnetic current is non-dissipative: protected from (local) scattering and dissipation by (global) topology Somewhat similar to superconductivity, but can exist at high temperature! Anomalous transport coefficients in hydrodynamics describe dissipation-free processes (unlike e.g. shear viscosity) 29

30 The CME in relativistic hydrodynamics: The Chiral Magnetic Wave
