Title: Discussion about Hydrodynamics, Out-of-Equilibrium Physics and Holography
Abstract: In the recent two decades, hydrodynamics has been systematically studied as a low energy effective field theory (EFT), which is an expansion into operators and their derivatives. This EFT has been extended in many directions by: including the effect of interactions, examining the convergence of its dispersion relations, re-summing the derivative expansion, connecting it to gravity, pushing it forward to far from equilibrium situations, establishing its causality and stability conditions, and deriving it from a generating functional. In this panel discussion, with four experts we assess the status and prospects of this field.
