Title: Attempts to quantize 2D hydrodynamics
Speaker: Paul Wiegmann

Brief Description:
Special Note:

The problem of quantization of hydrodynamics is commonly considered untractable. Nevertheless, quantum fluids exist and experimentally accesseble.

Ideal 2D flows can be seen as orbits of the group of Poisson-Lee area preserving diffeomorphisms. From this point of view the problem of quantization is equivalent to representation of Diff_A is could be linked to the quantization of 2D gravity.

In the talk I present an scheme of consistent quantization of 2D ideal chiral flows. based on the implication of the gravitational anomaly.
