    Kinetic description of chiral charge transport

  1. Jing-Yuan Chen, D. Son, M. Stephanov, Ho-Ung. Yee and YY , Lorentz Invariance in Chiral Kinetic Theory, Phys.Rev.Lett. 113 (2014) 182302 (selected as editors' suggestion), [arXiv:1404.5963].
    Comments: "A kinetic theory, with explicit Lorentz invariance, is derived for chiral fermions in an external electromagnetic field. This theory provides the correct form for the chiral vortical effect — the appearance of a current in a system undergoing rotation", from Editors' suggestion of Phys. Rev. Lett.
  2. M. Stephanov and YY, Chiral Kinetic Theory, Phys.Rev.Lett. 109 (2012) 162001, [arXiv:1207.0747].
    Comments: A theoretical framework to describe anomaly induced effects in non-equilibrium conditions by incorporating chiral anomaly into a kinetic theory.
  3. M. Stephanov, Ho-Ung. Yee and YY, Collective modes of chiral kinetic theory in a magnetic field, Phys.Rev. D91 (2015) 125014, [arXiv:1501.00222 ].
  4. Real time dynamics and QCD critical points

  5. Swagato Mukherjee, Raju Venugopalan and YY , Real time evolution of non-Gaussian cumulants in the QCD critical regime , [arXiv:1506.00645].
    Comments: A first theoretical study to describe memory effects on non-Gaussian fluctuations near QCD critical regime.
  6. Chiral anomaly and heavy-ion collisions

  7. Jinfeng Liao and YY , Hydrodynamics with chiral anomaly and charge separation in relativistic heavy ion collisions , [arXiv:1504.06906].
    Comments: a first attempt at quantifying contributions to observed charge correlations from both chiral magnetic effects (CME)) and background effects in one and same framework.
  8. Ho-ung. Yee and YY , Realistic Implementation of Chiral Magnetic Wave in Heavy Ion Collisions, Phys.Rev. C89 (2014) 044909, [arXiv:1311.2574].
    Comments: First numerical simulation of chiral magnetic effect(CME) on realistic hydrodynamic background of heavy-ion collisions. The contribution from CME to charge dependent elliptic flow(v2) is compared with the data at RHIC.
  9. Novel effects related to axial charge and anomaly

  10. Ioannis Iatrakis, Shu Lin and YY , Axial current generation by P-odd domains in QCD matter , Phys.Rev.Lett. 114 (2015) 252301 [arXiv:1411.2863].
    Comments: A novel mechanism for generating axial current related to domains witn non-zero aixal charge.
  11. Ioannis Iatrakis, Shu Lin and YY , The anomalous transport of axial charge: topological vs non-topological fluctuations, [arXiv:1506.01384].
  12. Probes of Quark-Gluon Plasma

  13. YY, Electrical conductivity of the quark-gluon plasma and soft photon spectrum in heavy-ion collisions, Phys.Rev. C90 (2014) 044903, [arXiv:1312.4434].
    Comments: First direct estimation of the electrical conductivity of QGP based on soft photon production data with realistic hydrodynamics simulation.
  14. H. Hohler and YY , Charmonium Moving through a Strongly Coupled QCD Plasma: a Holographic Perspective, Phys.Rev.D 88 (2013) 162001,086001, [arXiv:1305.1923].
    Comments: Momentum dependence of charmonium dissociation temperature from a bottom-up holographic model.
  15. Gauge/Gravity correspondence

  16. M. Stephanov and YY , Conductivity and Quasi-normal Modes in Holographic Theories, JHEP 1202 (2012), 017, [arXiv:1111.5303].
    Comments: A generic, model-independent sum-rule type relation between conductivity of strongly coupled QCD-like plasma and their quasi-normal modes, quantifying the contribution that conductivity receives from the freed charge carriers (quarks) due to the dissociation of mesonic states.
  17. Relativistic hydrodynamics

  18. M. Stephanov and YY , Reversing a heavy-ion collision, [arXiv:1404.5910].
    Comments: First application of the maximum entropy method to reconstruct freeze-out surface from particle spectrum data. Longitudinal expansion is studied analytically with initial condition fixed by the data.
