We discuss the theory of the spin polarizations induced by hydrodynamic gradients, which includes a newly discovered shear-induced polarization (SIP) term. In the phenomenological study using a hydrodynamic model, we discover that the local polarization contributed by SIP is substantial and has the “same sign” as the experimental measurements. Also, we find that the “sign” property of the local polarization observed in experiments seems to be related to “memory” effects on the polarizations of strange quarks in quark-gluon plasma.
