# The coset construction for non-equilibrium systems

@article{Landry2019TheCC, title={The coset construction for non-equilibrium systems}, author={Michael Landry}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2019}, volume={2020}, pages={1-43} }

We propose a systematic coset construction of non-equilibrium effective field theories (EFTs) governing the long-distance and late-time dynamics of relativistic, finite-temperature condensed matter systems. Our non-equilibrium coset construction makes significant advances beyond more standard coset constructions in that it takes advantage of recently-developed techniques, which allow the formulation of non-equilibrium effective actions that account for quantum and thermal fluctuations as well…
