The Fluid Manifesto: Schwinger Keldysh and the emergence of fluid dynamicsQMAP Seminar
|Speaker: ||Ramalingam Loganayagam, Princeton|
|Location: ||2112 MSB|
|Start time: ||Thu, Oct 22 2015, 3:10PM|
In this talk, I focus on the question of how relativistic fluid dynamics should be thought of as a Wilsonian effective field theory emerging from Schwinger-Keldysh path integrals. Taking the basic principles of Schwinger-Keldysh formalism seriously, we are led to a series of remarkable statements and a broad programme relating relativistic fluid dynamics and topological sigma models.
