Real-time observables, such as particle production rates or "transport coefficients" (conductivities, viscosities), play an important role in all contexts in which relativistic thermal field theory applies. An example from cosmology is the production rate of right-handed neutrinos, relevant for certain Dark Matter and Baryon Asymmetry scenarios; an example from heavy ion collision experiments is the diffusion coefficient related to heavy quark flavours (charm and bottom), characterizing the rate of their kinetic equilibration. In both contexts the most important interactions are described by non-Abelian gauge theories, so that many of the methods used are similar. The goal of this project is to make use of modern effective field theory techniques in order to determine reliably real-time observables relevant for cosmology and for heavy ion collision experiments, and to apply the resultsto problems of phenomenological interest.
