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
Heavy quarkonium: progress, puzzles, and opportunities
A golden age for heavy-quarkonium physics dawned a decade ago, initiated by the confluence of exciting advances in quantum chromodynamics (QCD) and an explosion of related experimental activity. TheExpand

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
QCD Equation of State and Hadron Resonance Gas
We compare the trace anomaly, strangeness and baryon number fluctuations calculated in lattice QCD with expectations based on hadron resonance gas model. We find that there is a significantExpand
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
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
Chiral crossover in QCD at zero and non-zero chemical potentials
Abstract We present results for pseudo-critical temperatures of QCD chiral crossovers at zero and non-zero values of baryon (B), strangeness (S), electric charge (Q), and isospin (I) chemicalExpand
The transition temperature in QCD
We present a detailed calculation of the transition temperature in QCD with two light and one heavier (strange) quark mass on lattices with temporal extent N_t =4 and 6. Calculations with improvedExpand
