  • We consider the energy dependence of the local P and CP violation in AuAu and CuCu collisions over a large energy range within a simple phenomenological model. It is expected that at LHC the chiral magnetic effect will be about 20 times weaker than at RHIC. At lower energy range this effect should vanish sharply at energy somewhere above the top SPS one. To elucidate CME background effects a transport model including magnetic field evolution is put forward.
  • In this paper, the impact of momentum and energy conservation of the collision operator in the kinetic description for Resonant Magnetic Perturbations (RMPs) in a tokamak is studied. The particle conserving differential collision operator of Ornstein-Uhlenbeck type is supplemented with integral parts such that energy and momentum are conserved. The application to RMP penetration in a tokamak shows that energy conservation in the electron collision operator is important for the quantitative description of plasma shielding effects at the resonant surface. On the other hand, momentum conservation in the ion collision operator does not significantly change the results.
  • We study some properties of the non-Abelian vacuum induced by strong external magnetic field. We perform calculations in the quenched SU(3) lattice gauge theory with tadpole-improved Luescher-Weisz action and chirally invariant lattice Dirac operator. The following results are obtained: The chiral symmetry breaking is enhanced by the magnetic field. The chiral condensate depends on the strength of the applied field as a power function with exponent {nu} = 1.6 {+-} 0.2. There is a paramagnetic polarization of the vacuum. The corresponding susceptibility and other magnetic properties are calculated and compared with the theoretical estimations. There are nonzero local fluctuations ofmore » the chirality and electromagnetic current, which grow with the magnetic field strength. These fluctuations can be a manifestation of the Chiral Magnetic Effect.« less
  • We investigate the evolution of the chiral magnetic instability in a protoneutron star and compute the resulting magnetic power and helicity spectra. The instability may act during the early cooling phase of the hot protoneutron star after supernova core collapse, where it can contribute to the buildup of magnetic fields of strength up to the order of 10{sup 14} G. The maximal field strengths generated by this instability, however, depend considerably on the temperature of the protoneutron star, on density fluctuations and turbulence spectrum of the medium. At the end of the hot cooling phase the magnetic field tends tomore » be concentrated around the submillimeter to cm scale, where it is subject to slow resistive damping.« less
