Title: Effective field theories for fluids

Abstract: I will discuss modern developments on effective field theories for fluid dynamics via an underlying Schwinger-Keldysh path integral.
The chief virtue of this framework is that it allows to systematically incorporate dissipative and statistical fluctuation effects within an action principle using symmetries and appropriate degrees of freedom. Such effective field theories can also be naturally embedded in gravity and derived via holography providing a valuable test of the approach.
