Chiral magnetic effect reveals the topology of gauge fields in heavy-ion collisions

12 Feb 2021 Dmitri E. Kharzeev Jinfeng Liao

The topological structure of vacuum is the cornerstone of non-Abelian gauge theories describing strong and electroweak interactions within the standard model of particle physics. However, transitions between different topological sectors of the vacuum (believed to be at the origin of the baryon asymmetry of the Universe) have never been observed directly... (read more)
