Anomalous chiral superfluidity Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We discuss both the anomalous Cartan currents and the energy–momentum tensor in a left chiral theory with flavor anomalies as an effective theory for flavored chiral phonons in a chiral superfluid with the gauged Wess–Zumino–Witten term. In the mean-field (leading tadpole) approximation the anomalous Cartan currents and the energy–momentum tensor take the form of constitutive currents in the chiral superfluid state. The pertinence of higher order corrections and the Adler–Bardeen theorem is briefly noted.
