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.
The Hamilton-Jacobi formalism of classical mechanics has always occupied a marginal role in celebrated presentations of classical mechanics. However, since the works of C. Caratheodory, the Hamilton-Jacobi formalism has gained greater prominence, even though it has never been central in quantization problems. In the project we shall revisit the Hamilton-Jacobi formalism in classical mecha…
