Neutrino magnetohydrodynamics
Abstract A new neutrino magnetohydrodynamics (NMHD) model is formulated, where the effects of the charged weak current on the electron-ion magnetohydrodynamic fluid are taken into account. The modelExpand
Kinetics of a lepton plasma in the standard model of electroweak interactions
Abstract A many-particle electron-neutrino system of arbitrary density is considered within the framework of the standard model of electro-weak interactions. The Bogolyubov method has been appliedExpand
Axion-Driven Cosmic Magnetogenesis during the QCD Crossover.
A mechanism for the generation of a magnetic field in the early Universe during the QCD crossover assuming that dark matter is made of axions is proposed, providing a clear test for the cosmological origin of the field through γ-ray observations of distant blazars. Expand
Plasma electrodynamics in the expanding Universe.
The 3 + 1 formalism of Thorne and Macdonald is used to formulate the electrodynamic equations for a plasma in a spatially flat Robertson-Walker metric, and the results are compared with those of classical kinetic theory and quantum field theory in special relativity. Expand

The ``3+1'' formalism of Thorne and Macdonald is applied to construct the linearized theory of a general-relativistic electron-positron plasma in the early Universe; it is found that the frequencies of the basic modes redshift like the frequency of a free photon. Expand
Instability of magnetic fields in electroweak plasma driven by neutrino asymmetries
The magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) is modified to incorporate the parity violation in the Standard Model leading to a new instability of magnetic fields in the electroweak plasma in the presence ofExpand

Observation of a neutrino burst from the supernova SN1987A.
A neutrino burst was observed in the Kamiokande II detector on 23 February, 7:35:35 UT ( +- 1 min) during a time interval of 13 sec. The signal consisted of 11 electron events of energy 7.5 to 36Expand
Magnetohydrodynamics of the Early Universe and the Evolution of Primordial Magnetic Fields∗
We show that the decaying magnetohydrodynamic turbulence leads to a more rapid growth of the correlation length of a primordial magnetic field than that caused by the expansion of the Universe. As anExpand
Cosmology, high-energy physics and astrophysics are today converging to the study of large scale magnetic fields. While the experimental evidence for the existence of large scale magnetization inExpand
