Transport coefficients from the lattice?*

The prospects of extracting transport coefficients from euclidean lattice simulations are discussed. Some general
comments on the reconstruction of spectral functions using the Maximal Entropy Method are given as well.
1. In field theory transport coefficients are pro-
portional to the slope of appropriate spectral
functions at zero frequency and zero spatial mo-
mentum (Kubo relation). Examples are the elec-
trical conductivity,

tral function associated with the electromagnetic
current j& = 7j$$, and the shear viscosity,
