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

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

3 Quantum anomalies 3 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 V V if A, V are background fields, V is not conserved!

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

5 Chiral Magnetic Effect in a chirally imbalanced plasma Fukushima, DK, Warringa, PRD‘08 In the presence of the chiral chemical potential and in magnetic field, the vector e.m. current is not conserved: Compute the current through The result: Coefficient is fixed by the axial anomaly, no corrections 5

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

20 Holographic chiral magnetic effect: the strong coupling regime (AdS/CFT) H.-U. Yee, arXiv: , JHEP 0911:085, 2009; V. Rubakov, arXiv: ,... 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? D.K., H. Warringa Phys Rev D80 (2009) Strong coupling Weak coupling

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 22 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)

23 Chiral MagnetoHydroDynamics (CMHD) - relativistic hydrodynamics with triangle anomalies and external electromagnetic fields 23 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 Many new anomaly-induced phenomena!

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

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

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

27 No entropy production from T-even anomalous terms 27 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,

28 The fluid/gravity correspondence 28 DK and H.-U. Yee, 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, It works Other holographic checks work as well:

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 DK, H.-U. Yee, arXiv: [hep-th]; PRD The CME in relativistic hydrodynamics: The Chiral Magnetic Wave 30 Propagating chiral wave: (if chiral symmetry is restored) Gapless collective mode is the carrier of CME current in MHD: CME Chiral separation Electri c Chiral
