Title: Dissipative properties of chiral media

Abstract: The anomalous transport is considered to be non-dissipative at least at the level of the general analysis of symmetries. However it is well known that beyond the ideal limit dissipation could appear as a consequence of the microscopic interaction. We would consider drag force acting on a massive impurity moving though the anomalous flow in a chiral plasma in the limits of weak and strong medium-impurity coupling. This analysis shows that the dissipation of the anomalous transport is indeed suppressed and opens further direction for a realistic investigation of dissipative properties of chiral media.
