Description

We will present work on the chiral magnetic instability in the context of hot neutron stars and its possible role for magneto genesis in the early Universe. Whether a chiral asymmetry in the electron sector, induced for example by the electroweak interaction, leads to growing helical magnetic fields depends on many factors that will be discussed in this talk.
