Abstract Using the second law of local thermodynamics and the first-order Palatini formalism, we formulate relativistic spin hydrodynamics for quantum field theories with Dirac fermions, such as QED and QCD, in a torsionful curved background. We work in a regime where spin density, which is assumed to relax much slower than other non-hydrodynamic modes, is treated as an independent degree of freedom in an extended hydrodynamic description. Spin hydrodynamics in our approach contains only three… 

Spin relaxation rate for heavy quarks in weakly coupled QCD plasma

We compute the relaxation rate of the spin density of heavy quarks in a perturbative QCD plasma to leading-log order in the coupling constant g . The spin relaxation rate Γ s in spin hydrodynamics is

Stability studies of first order spin-hydrodynamic frameworks

We study the stability of first-order dissipative spin-hydrodynamic frameworks. We considered two different first-order dissipative spin-hydrodynamic frameworks. The first one considers the spin chemical

We derive a quantum kinetic theory for QED based on Kadanoff-Baym equations for Wigner functions. By assuming parity invariance and considering a complete set of self-energy diagrams, we find the

Spin polarization dynamics in the non-boost-invariant background

Space-time evolution of spin polarization within the framework of hydrodynamics with spin based on de Groot van Leeuwen van Weert forms of energy-momentum and spin tensors is studied. Due to the

Canonical and phenomenological formulations of spin hydrodynamics

Two formulations of relativistic hydrodynamics of particles with spin 1 / 2 are compared. The first approach, dubbed the canonical one, uses expressions for the energy-momentum and spin tensors that

Abstract In this paper we introduce the axial gauge field to the framework of the quantum kinetic theory with vector gauge field in the massless limit. Treating axial-gauge field on an equal footing

We develop a relativistic (quasi-)hydrodynamic framework, dubbed the gyrohydrodynamics to describe fluid dynamics of many-body systems with spin under strong vorticity based on entropy-current

Hydrodynamics, spin currents and torsion

We construct the canonical constitutive relations for a fluid description of a system with a spin current, valid in an arbitrary number of dimensions in the absence of parity breaking or time



From chiral kinetic theory to relativistic viscous spin hydrodynamics

In this paper, we start with chiral kinetic theory and construct the spin hydrodynamic framework for a chiral spinor system. Using the 14-moment expansion formalism, we obtain the equations of motion

Spin tensor and pseudo-gauges: from nuclear collisions to gravitational physics

The relativistic treatment of spin is a fundamental subject which has an old history. In various physical contexts it is necessary to separate the relativistic total angular momentum into an orbital
