A bstractA theory of parity-invariant dissipative fluids with q-form symmetry is formulated to first order in a derivative expansion. The fluid is anisotropic with symmetry SO(D − 1 − q) × SO(q) and carries dissolved q-dimensional charged objects that couple to a (q + 1)-form background gauge field. The case q = 1 for which the fluid carries string charge is related to magnetohydrodynamics in D = 4 spacetime dimensions. We identify q+7 parity-even independent transport coefficients at first… 

One-form superfluids & magnetohydrodynamics

We use the framework of generalised global symmetries to study various hydrodynamic regimes of hot electromagnetism. We formulate the hydrodynamic theories with an unbroken or a spontaneously broken

A stable and causal model of magnetohydrodynamics

We formulate the theory of first-order dissipative magnetohydrodynamics in an arbitrary hydrodynamic frame under the assumption of parity-invariance and discrete charge symmetry. We study the mode

Holography and hydrodynamics with weakly broken symmetries

Hydrodynamics is a theory of long-range excitations controlled by equations of motion that encode the conservation of a set of currents (energy, momentum, charge, etc.) associated with explicitly

Holography and magnetohydrodynamics with dynamical gauge fields

Within the framework of holography, the Einstein-Maxwell action with Dirichlet boundary conditions corresponds to a dual conformal field theory in presence of an external gauge field. Nevertheless,

A universal framework for hydrodynamics

In this thesis, we present a universal framework for hydrodynamics starting from the fundamental considerations of symmetries and the second law of thermodynamics, while allowing for additional

Effective description of non-equilibrium currents in cold magnetized plasma

The dynamics of cold strongly magnetized plasma -- traditionally the domain of force-free electrodynamics -- has recently been reformulated in terms of symmetries and effective field theory, where

Viscoelastic hydrodynamics and holography

We formulate the theory of nonlinear viscoelastic hydrodynamics of anisotropic crystals in terms of dynamical Goldstone scalars of spontaneously broken translational symmetries, under the assumption

Effective field theory for non-relativistic hydrodynamics

We write down a Schwinger-Keldysh effective field theory for non-relativistic (Galilean) hydrodynamics. We use the null background construction to covariantly couple Galilean field theories to a set

A symmetry principle for gauge theories with fractons

Fractonic phases are new phases of matter that host excitations with restricted mobility. We show that a certain class of gapless fractonic phases are realized as a result of spontaneous breaking of



Generalized global symmetries and dissipative magnetohydrodynamics

The conserved magnetic flux of U ( 1 ) electrodynamics coupled to matter in four dimensions is associated with a generalized global symmetry. We study the realization of such a symmetry at
