A Ratio of the Shear Viscosity to the Density of Entropy for Helium

Section: Solid matter
Original Author's Text: English

Abstract: We have studied the ratio (η/s) of the shear viscosity η to the density of entropy s for helium as a function of the temperature and have established that the minimal value, (η/s)min, satisfies the Kovtun–Son–Starinets inequality, (η/s)min ≥ (ћ/4πkB).

Key words: Helium, ratio of the shear viscosity to the density of entropy, Kovtun–Son– Starinets inequality.
