ABSTRACT

Chirality of fermions has a topological nature. This microscopic property modifies the macroscopic hydrodynamic behavior and leads to unusual transport protected by topology in relativistic systems. We argue that these topological tranport phenomena should play important roles in the evolution of supernovae and could potentially solve the problems in astrophysics, such as the origins of supernova explosions and magnetars.
