Title: Charge Redistribution from Anomalous Magnetovorticity Coupling

Here, we investigate novel transport phenomena in a chiral fluid originated from an interplay between a vorticity and strong magnetic field, which induces a redistribution of vector charges in the system and an axial current along the magnetic field. The corresponding transport coefficients are obtained from an energy-shift argument for the chiral fermions in the lowest Landau level due to a spin-vorticity coupling and also from diagrammatic computations on the basis of the linear response theory. Based on consistent results from both methods, we also observe that the transport coefficients are proportional to the anomaly coefficient and are independent of temperature and chemical potential. Finally, we speculate that these transport phenomena are connected to quantum anomaly.
