The temperature evolution of the shear viscosity in a Unitary Fermi Gas    [PDF]

Gabriel Wlazłowski, Piotr Magierski, Aurel Bulgac, Kenneth J. Roche
We present an ab initio determination of the shear viscosity for the unitary Fermi gas based on finite temperature quantum Monte Carlo calculations and the Kubo linear-response formalism. The results are confronted with the bound for the shear viscosity originating from hydrodynamic fluctuations. Assuming smoothness of the frequency dependent shear viscosity eta(omega), we show that the bound is violated in the low temperature regime and the violation occurs simultaneously with the onset of the Cooper paring in the system. In order to preserve the hydrodynamic bound in QMC eta(omega) has to possess a sharp structure located in the vicinity of zero frequency which is not resolved by an analytic continuation procedure.
