Schwinger-Keldysh effective field theories

Triangular Seminar Natalia Pinzani Fokeeva (KU Leuven)

15:00 IC
room Blackett LT2

I will discuss novel effective field theories for hydrodynamics. After identifying the relevant low-energy degrees of freedom, I will show how the symmetries of the problem can be efficiently implemented using supersymmetry. Interestingly, a conserved entropy current naturally arises as a Noether current in superspace. If time permits, I will also show how to derive such effective actions from holography.
