Abstract: We derive the chiral kinetic equation in 8 dimensional phase space in nonAbelian SU(N) gauge field within the Wigner function formalism. By using the “covariant gradient expansion”, we disentangle the Wigner equations in four-vector space up to the first order and find that only the time-like component of the chiral Wigner function is independent while other components can be explicit derivative. After further decomposing the Wigner function or equations in color space, we present the… Expand
