TITLE Lecture 2: Constraints on hydrodynamics and defect CFT from anomalies
ABSTRACT

In the second talk I will focus on the role of anomalies in some of my own work. The first third of the talk will be devoted to relativistic hydrodynamics, and the second third to how microscopic anomalies fully determine certain parity-violating transport coefficients in hydrodynamics. These encode chiral transport phenomena like the chiral magnetic and chiral vortical effects. In the last part of the talk I will discuss irreversibility constraints on the landscape of CFTs with a 1+1-dimensional conformal defect or boundary, like N=4 super Yang-Mills theory with a surface operator or the 2+1d Ising model with conformally invariant boundary conditions.
