Models of medium-induced radiative parton energy loss account for the strong suppression of high-p(T) hadron spectra in square root of (S)NN=200 GeV Au-Au collisions at BNL RHIC in terms of a singleâ€¦ (More)

Expectation values of Wilson loops define the nonperturbative properties of the hot medium produced in heavy ion collisions that arise in the analysis of both radiative parton energy loss andâ€¦ (More)

Important progress in understanding the behavior of hadronic matter at high density has been achieved recently, by adapting the techniques of condensed matter theory. At asymptotic densities, theâ€¦ (More)

One of the challenges in relating experimental measurements of the suppression in the number of J/psi mesons produced in heavy ion collisions to lattice QCD calculations is that whereas the latticeâ€¦ (More)

We propose a symmetry breaking scheme for QCD with three massless quarks at high baryon density wherein the color and avor SU(3)color SU(3)L SU(3)R symmetries are broken down to the diagonal subgroupâ€¦ (More)

In QCD with two flavours of massless quarks, the chiral phase transition is plausibly in the same universality class as the classical four component Heisenberg magnet. Therefore, renormalizationâ€¦ (More)

We study the dispersion relations of mesons in a particular hot strongly coupled supersymmetric gauge theory plasma. We find that at large momentum k the dispersion relations become Ï‰ â‰ƒ v0k + a + b/kâ€¦ (More)

We use a variational procedure to study finite density QCD in an approximation in which the interaction between quarks is modelled by that induced by instantons. We find that uniform states withâ€¦ (More)

Several approaches to QCD with two massless quarks at finite temperature T and baryon chemical potential Âµ suggest the existence of a tricritical point on the boundary of the phase with spontaneouslyâ€¦ (More)

We investigate the robustness with respect to the introduction of nonconformality of five properties of strongly coupled plasmas that have been calculated in N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills (SYM)â€¦ (More)
