A phenomenological expression for the thermodynamic potential of gluons and quarks is constructed which incorporates the features of deconfinement and chiral symmetry restoration known from lattice simulations. The thermodynamic potential is a function of the Polyakov loop and chiral condensate expectation values. The gluonic sector uses a successful model for pure SU(Nc) gauge theories in which the Polyakov loop eigenvalues are the fundamental order parameters for deconfinement. The quark… CONTINUE READING
