摘要: We show that when an external magnetic field parallel to the boundary is applied, Weyl anomaly give rises to a new anomalous current transport near the boundary. Similar to the Casimir effect, this transport phenomena has its origin in the effect of the boundary on the quantum fluctuations of the vacuum. The near-boundary current takes universal form for general quantum field theory (QFT) , which are covariant, gauge invariant, unitary and renormalizable. We verify the universal law of current by studying free QFT and holographic BCFT.  Here BCFT is the conformal field theory defined on a manifold with a boundary. Finally, we discuss the so-called divergence problem and energy problem of our results and show that how they can be resolved.
