In this project we will apply the pseudo-classical model for the Weyl particle to the problem of the chiral magnetic effect. The central idea is to introduce the Berry curvature, so that one can represent classically the chiral anomaly of quantum field theory. We hope to obtain an evolution equation for the one-particle distribution function which generalizes previous approaches.
