A longstanding issue in the study of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) is its behavior at nonzero baryon density, which has implications for many areas of physics. The path integral has a complex integrand when the quark chemical potential is nonzero and therefore has a sign problem, but it also has a generalized PT symmetry. We review some new approaches to PT -symmetric field theories, including both analytical techniques and methods for lattice simulation. We show that PT -symmetric field… Expand

Finite-density QCD, $\mathcal{PT}$ symmetry, and exotic phases
We study the phase structure of effective models of finite-density QCD using analytic and lattice simulation techniques developed for the study of non-Hermitian and PT -symmetric QFTs. FinitedensityExpand
