Emergent Hydrodynamics in Condensed Matter and
High-energy Physics

International Workshop
10 - 14 August 2020

Hydrodynamics is one of the cornerstones of physics. Recent revival of interests in hydrodynamics comes from the heavy-ion collisions and transport experiments in semimetals. The goal of the workshop is to bring together the communities of high-energy and condensed matter physicists and to stimulate interdisciplinary scientific exchange.

Topics include

  • conditions under which the hydrodynamic regime can be accessed in materials
  • new proposals for experimental signatures of fluid mechanics in metals
  • three-dimensional formalism for fluids in metals
  • hydrodynamic/ballistic cross-over in electronic hydrodynamics
  • experimental signatures of field theory anomalies in macrosopic systems
  • properties of chiral kinetic theories
  • experimental signatures of Hall viscosity in materials
  • active systems with Hall viscosity
  • numerical methods in hydrodynamic systems with broken parity/time reversal
  • properties of relativistic fluids
  • applications of relativistic fluid dynamics
  • hydrodynamics with spin degrees of freedom
