The strong magnetic fields induced by heavy-ion collisions have attracted a lot of interests in transport phenomena in QGP. While the roles of the chiral fermions played in the anomaly-induced transport phenomena have been intensively investigated, their manifestations in the dissipative transport phenomena have not been fully identified. We discuss the heavy-quark diffusion dynamics [1], electrical conductivity [2,3], and viscosities [4] in QGP under the strong magnetic field on the basis of the hard thermal loop resummation, putting an emphasis on the roles of the chiral properties of the lowest-Landau-level fermions. We discuss crucial roles of the chirality conservation and phenomenological consequences, which sheds light on the new aspects of the transport phenomena in the heavy-ion collisions.

Recent related works include the computation of the jet energy loss [5], shear viscosity [6], and the electrical conductivity with the higher Landau levels [7].
