Gravitational-Wave Constraints on the Neutron-Star-Matter Equation of State.
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 ofExpand
Cold quark matter
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 theoryExpand
Basics of Thermal Field Theory
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 practicalExpand
Pressure of QCD at finite temperatures and chemical potentials
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 vacuumExpand
Constraining Neutron Star Matter with Quantum Chromodynamics
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. WeExpand
Evidence for quark-matter cores in massive neutron stars
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 phaseExpand
Interacting quark matter equation of state for compact stars
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 phaseExpand
Quark number susceptibilities of hot QCD up to g 6 ln g
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 methodExpand
Finite coupling corrections to holographic predictions for hot QCD
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 theExpand
Next-to-leading order thermal spectral functions in the perturbative domain
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
