Gravitational-Wave Constraints on the Neutron-Star-Matter Equation of State.

- Eemeli Annala, Tyler Gorda, A. Kurkela, A. Vuorinen
- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 7 November 2017

The detection of gravitational waves originating from a neutron-star merger, GW170817, by the LIGO and Virgo Collaborations has recently provided new stringent limits on the tidal deformabilities of… Expand

Cold quark matter

- A. Kurkela, P. Romatschke, A. Vuorinen
- Physics
- 10 December 2009

We perform an O({alpha}{sub s}{sup 2}) perturbative calculation of the equation of state of cold but dense QCD matter with two massless and one massive quark flavor, finding that perturbation theory… Expand

Basics of Thermal Field Theory

- M. Laine, A. Vuorinen
- Physics
- 6 January 2017

These lecture notes, suitable for a two-semester introductory course or self-study, offer an elementary and self-contained exposition of the basic tools and concepts that are encountered in practical… Expand

Pressure of QCD at finite temperatures and chemical potentials

- A. Vuorinen
- Physics
- 16 May 2003

We compute the perturbative expansion of the pressure of hot QCD to order g(6)ln g in the presence of finite quark chemical potentials. In this process we evaluate all two- and three-loop vacuum… Expand

Constraining Neutron Star Matter with Quantum Chromodynamics

- A. Kurkela, E. Fraga, J. Schaffner-Bielich, A. Vuorinen
- Physics
- 23 June 2014

In recent years, there have been several successful attempts to constrain the equation of state of neutron star matter using input from low-energy nuclear physics and observational data. We… Expand

Evidence for quark-matter cores in massive neutron stars

- Eemeli Annala, Tyler Gorda, A. Kurkela, J. Nättilä, A. Vuorinen
- Physics
- 1 June 2020

The theory governing the strong nuclear force—quantum chromodynamics—predicts that at sufficiently high energy densities, hadronic nuclear matter undergoes a deconfinement transition to a new phase… Expand

Interacting quark matter equation of state for compact stars

- E. Fraga, A. Kurkela, A. Vuorinen
- Physics
- 20 November 2013

Lattice QCD studies of thermodynamics of hot quark-gluon plasma (QGP) demonstrate the importance of accounting for the interactions of quarks and gluons, if one wants to investigate the phase… Expand

Quark number susceptibilities of hot QCD up to g 6 ln g

- A. Vuorinen
- Physics
- 19 December 2002

The pressure of hot QCD has recently been determined to the last perturbatively computable order ${g}^{6}\mathrm{ln}g$ by Kajantie et al. using three-dimensional effective theories. A similar method… Expand

Finite coupling corrections to holographic predictions for hot QCD

- Sebastian Waeber, A. Schäfer, A. Vuorinen, L. Yaffe
- Physics
- 10 September 2015

A bstractFinite ’t Hooft coupling corrections to multiple physical observables in strongly coupled N=4$$ \mathcal{N}=4 $$ supersymmetric Yang-Mills plasma are examined, in an attempt to assess the… Expand

Next-to-leading order thermal spectral functions in the perturbative domain

- M. Laine, A. Vuorinen, Y. Zhu
- Physics
- 5 August 2011

Motivated by applications in thermal QCD and cosmology, we elaborate on a general method for computing next-to-leading order spectral functions for composite operators at vanishing spatial momentum,… Expand
