Title: New quantum effects in relativistic magnetohydrodynamics

Abstract

Chiral anomaly induces a new kind of macroscopic quantum behavior in relativistic magnetohydrodynamics, including the chiral magnetic effect. In this talk we present two new quantum effects present in fluids that contain charged chiralfermions: 1) the turbulent inverse cascade driven by the chiral anomaly; 2) quantized chiral magnetic current induced by the reconnections of magnetic flux. Furthermore,we discuss the implications for the evolution of the quark-gluon plasma produced in heavy ion collisions.
