Effective Field Theory for Fluids – Rachel Rosen

Date: Tue. November 13th, 2012, 11:30 am-12:30 pm
Location: Rockefeller 221

In this talk I will present the low-energy effective field theory that describes the infrared dynamics of non-dissipative fluids. In particular, I will use the techniques of non-linear realizations developed by Callan, Coleman, Wess and Zumino, and Volkov to construct the effective theory based on the symmetry-breaking pattern of the fluid. I will discuss how this formalism can be used to incorporate quantum anomalies into the effective field theory.
