This paper explores properties of baryons and finite density baryonic matter in an artificial world in which N{sub c}, the number of colors, is large and the quarks of all species are degenerate and much larger than {Lambda}{sub QCD}. It has long been known that in large N{sub c} quantum chromodynamics (QCD), baryons composed entirely of heavy quarks are accurately described in the mean-field approximation. However, the detailed properties of baryons in the combined large N{sub c} and heavy… CONTINUE READING
