We review, clarify, and extend the notion of color-flavor locking. We present evidence that for three degenerate flavors the qualitative features of the color-flavor locked state, reliably predicted for high density, match the expected features of hadronic matter at low density. This provides, in particular, a controlled, weak-coupling realization of confinement and chiral symmetry breaking in this (slight) idealization of QCD.

Hadron-quark continuity induced by the axial anomaly in dense QCD
We investigate the interplay between the chiral and diquark condensates on the basis of the Ginzburg–Landau potential with QCD symmetry. We demonstrate that the axial anomaly drives a new criticalExpand
High-density QCD: the effects of strangeness
Abstract I discuss the zero temperature phase diagram of QCD, as a function of baryon density and strange quark mass. The noteworthy points are that at sufficiently high density chiral symmetry isExpand
Entropy in the quark–hadron transition
Abstract We study, in the PNJL model, how the entropy of interacting quarks reflects the change in the effective degrees of freedom as the temperature increases through the quark–hadron phaseExpand
The color-flavor locking phase at T≠0
Abstract We study the color-flavor locked phase of QCD with three massless quarks at high chemical potential and small non zero temperatures. We make use of the recently introduced effective actionExpand
High-density quark matter under stress
Abstract We study the effect of SU(3)-flavor breaking on high-density quark matter. We discuss, in particular, a nonzero electron chemical potential and a finite strange-quark mass. We argue thatExpand
Color superconductivity: Continuity of quark and hadron matter, the role of the strange quark mass, and perturbative results
Abstract We summarize some recent results on the structure of QCD at very high baryon density.
Generalized pions in dense QCD
Abstract QCD superconductors in the color-flavor-locked (CFL) phase sustain light Goldstone modes (that will be referred to as generalized pions) that can be described as pairs of particle and/orExpand
Masses of the Goldstone modes in the CFL phase of QCD at finite density
Abstract We construct the U L (3)× U R (3) effective lagrangian which encodes the dynamics of the low energy pseudoscalar excitations in the Color-Flavor-Locking superconducting phase of QCD atExpand
Meson Condensation
We give a pedagogical review of the properties of the various meson condensation phases triggered by a large isospin or strangeness imbalance. We argue that these phases are extremely interesting andExpand
Qualitons at high density
Abstract In the color-flavor-locked (CFL) phase of the QCD superconductor we show that baryons behave as qualitons (called “superqualitons”) with quantum numbers B=(1 mod 2)/3 , S =1/2 and Y = B . AnExpand
