A first-order QCD phase transition that occurred reversibly in the early universe would lead to a surprisingly rich cosmological scenario. Although observable consequences mould not necessarily survive, it is at least conceivable that the phase transition mould concentrate most of the quark excess ln dcnsc, lnvlslblc qualk nuggcts, prov1d1ng an cxplanat1on for thc dark matter ln terms of QCD effects only. This possibility is viable only if quark matter has energy per baryon 1ess than 938 MeV…

Baryon Number Transfer Could Delay Quark–Hadron Transition in Cosmology
In the early Universe, strongly interacting matter was a quark–gluon plasma. Both lattice computations and heavy ion collision experiments, however, tell us that, in the absence of chemical
Remark on the QCD-electroweak phase transition in a supercooled Universe
In extensions of the Standard Model with no dimensionful parameters the electroweak phase transition can be delayed to temperatures of order 100 MeV. Then the chiral phase transition of QCD can
A precision test of the nature of Dark Matter and a probe of the QCD phase transition
If dark matter (DM) contains equal numbers of u,d,s quarks, the ratio of DM and ordinary matter densities is shown to follow from the Boltzmann distribution in the Quark Gluon Plasma. For sexaquark
Trajectory of the cosmic plasma through the quark matter phase diagram
Experimental studies of the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) focus on two, in practice distinct, regimes: one in which the baryonic chemical potential $\mu_B$ is essentially zero, the other in which it is of
Proper time regularization and the QCD chiral phase transition
TLDR
It is found that in the chiral limit the whole transition line in the phase diagram is of second order, whereas for finite quark masses a crossover is observed, indicating that the regularization scheme can have a dramatic impact on the study of the QCD phase transition within the NJL model.
Critical point in the QCD phase diagram for extremely strong background magnetic fields
Lattice simulations have demonstrated that a background (electro)magnetic field reduces the chiral/deconfinement transition temperature of quantum chromodynamics for eB < 1 GeV2. On the level of
Gravitational waves from first-order phase transitions in Majoron models of neutrino mass
Abstract We show how the generation of right-handed neutrino masses in Majoron models may be associated with a first-order phase transition and accompanied by the production of a stochastic
Gravitational waves from neutrino mass genesis
The discovery of gravitational waves opens new opportunities to test BSM physics. In particular, the production of a stochastic background of primordial gravitational waves could provide a signature
Magnetic field inhibits the conversion of neutron stars to quark stars
Neutron stars provide a natural laboratory to test some unique implications of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD)- the underlying theory of strong interactions- at extreme conditions of very high baryon
