Abstract

We consider the thermal response of a (3 + 1)-dimensional theory with a chiral anomaly on a curved space motivated by the chiral magnetic effect. We find a new phenomenon, called the chiral heat effect, such that the thermal current is induced transverse to a gradient of the temperature even on a flat space. We study a similar topological effect on the spacetime with a torsion.
