Towards a quantum theory of the chiral magnetic effect

- Physics
- 2010

We discuss three possible ways of addressing quantum physics behind chiral magnetic effect and electric charge fluctuation patterns in heavy-ion collisions. The first one makes use of P-parity…

Local strong parity violation and new possibilities in experimental study of non-perturbative QCD

- Physics

Quark interaction with topologically non-trivial gluonic fields, instantons and sphalerons, violates 𝒫 and 𝒞𝒫 symmetry. In the strong magnetic field of a non-central nuclear collision such…

Charge correlations and collective dynamics in Pb-Pb collisions at sqrt(sNN)=2.76 TeV

- Physics

The theory of the strong force is called Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD). Within experimental limits it is observed that QCD respects CP-symmetry, although there is no confirmed fundamental explanation…

Lattice QCD in strong magnetic fields

- Physics
- 2009

Vacuum of Quantum Chromodynamics in very strong (hadron-scale) magnetic fields exhibits many interesting nonperturbative effects. Some of these effects can be studied with the help of lattice…

Charge-dependent azimuthal correlations of secondary particles in heavy ion collisions

- Physics

The P/CP symmetry breaking in quantum chromodynamics (QCD) could be realized via transitions between local fluctuations of gauge fields. Azimuthal correlations which characterize the asymmetry of the…

A phenomenon important to the development of the early Universe which may be experimentally testable in heavy-ion collisions is discussed and the formation of a nonzero straight theta(ind) vacuum is seen on a time scale of 10(-23) s.

Anomaly induced domain formation of disoriented chiral condensates

We discuss the effect of the chiral anomaly as a possible mechanism for triggering the formation of domains of disoriented chiral condensate (DCC) in relativistic heavy ion collisions. The anomalous…

Instanton-induced effects in QCD high-energy scattering

We evaluate a number of new instanton-induced phenomena in QCD, starting with static dipole-dipole potentials, and proceeding to quark-quark and dipole-dipole scattering at high energy. We use a…

Domain walls and theta dependence in QCD with an effective Lagrangian approach

We suggest an anomalous effective Lagrangian which reproduces the anomalous conformal and chiral Ward identities and topological charge quantization in QCD. It is shown that the large ${N}_{c}$ Di…
