Chiral and deconfinement aspects of the QCD transition
We present results on the chiral and deconfinement properties of the QCD transition at finite temperature. Calculations are performed with 2 + 1 flavors of quarks using the p4, asqtad, and HISQ/treeExpand
Equation of state in ( 2+1 )-flavor QCD
We present results for the equation of state in ( 2 + 1 )-flavor QCD using the highly improved staggered quark action and lattices with temporal extent N τ = 6 , 8, 10, and 12. We show that theseExpand
Lattice QCD at High Temperature and Density
After a brief introduction into basic aspects of the formulation of lattice regularized QCD at finite temperature and density we discuss our current understanding of the QCD phase diagramat finiteExpand
Thermodynamics of SU(3) lattice gauge theory
The pressure and the energy density of the SU(3) gauge theory are calculated on lattices with temporal extent N-tau = 4, 6 and 8 and spatial extent N-sigma = 16 and 32. The results are thenExpand

Equation of state and QCD transition at finite temperature
We calculate the equation of state in $2+1$ flavor QCD at finite temperature with physical strange quark mass and almost physical light quark masses using lattices with temporal extentExpand
Thermal dilepton rate and electrical conductivity: An analysis of vector current correlation functions in quenched lattice QCD
We calculate the vector current correlation function for light valence quarks in the deconfined phase of QCD. The calculations have been performed in quenched lattice QCD at T ≃ 1.45Tc for fourExpand
The QCD Equation of State with almost Physical Quark Masses
We present results on the equation of state in QCD with two light quark flavors and a heavier strange quark. Calculations with improved staggered fermions have been performed on lattices withExpand
Universal properties of bulk viscosity near the QCD phase transition
Abstract We extract the bulk viscosity of hot quark–gluon matter in the presence of light quarks from the recent lattice data on the QCD equation of state. For that purpose we extend the sum ruleExpand
Heavy quarkonium physics
This report is the result of the collaboration and research effort of the Quarkonium Working Group over the last three years. It provides a comprehensive overview of the state of the art inExpand
