"Chiral electrodynamics and cosmic magnetic fields"

Günter Sigl
Hamburger Sternwarte (Hamburg, Allemagne)

We will present work on the chiral magnetic instability in the context of
hot neutron stars and its possible role for magneto genesis in the early Universe.
Whether a chiral asymmetry in the electron sector, induced for example by the
electroweak interaction, leads to growing helical magnetic fields depends
on many factors that will be discussed in this context. Possible connections to
baryo/leptogenesis will also be briefly mentioned.
