Title: Dissipationless Hall current in dense quark matter in a magnetic field

Here, we show the realization of axion electrodynamics within the Dual Chiral Density Wave phase of dense quark matter in the presence of a magnetic field. This system exhibits an anomalous dissipationless Hall current perpendicular to the magnetic field and an anomalous electric charge density. This connection to topological insulators and 3D optical lattices, as well as possible implications for heavy-ion collisions and neutron stars are outlined.
