Due to the current search of Majorana fermions, the physics of two-dimensional identical fermions with short-range p-wave interactions is of considerable interest. The seminar will be about the effective theory of a chiral p+ip fermionic superfluid at zero temperature. This theory naturally incorporates the parity and time reversal violating effects such as the Hall viscosity and the edge current. It also allows to study an isolated vortex in a chiral superfluid and identify the leading chirality effect in the density depletion profile.
