In this review, we summarize recent progresses on the possible phases of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) in the presence of a strong magnetic field, mainly from the views of chiral effective

Confinement of Fermions in Tachyon Matter at Finite Temperature

We study a phenomenological model that mimics the characteristics of QCD theory at finite temperature. The model involves fermions coupled with a modified Abelian gauge field in a tachyon matter. It

Localized rainbows in the QCD phase diagram

We study the phase diagram of strongly interacting matter with light quarks using a recently proposed, small parameter approach to infrared QCD in the Landau gauge. This is based on an expansion with

Transport and hydrodynamics in the chiral limit

We analyze the evolution of hydrodynamic fluctuations for QCD matter below $T_c$ in the chiral limit, where the pions (the Goldstone modes) must be treated as additional non-abelian superfluid

M ay 2 01 0 Condensates in Quantum Chromodynamics and the Cosmological Constant

Casher and Susskind have noted that in the light-front description, spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking in quantum chromodynamics (QCD) is a property of hadronic wavefunctions and not of the vacuum.

Condensates in quantum chromodynamics and the cosmological constant

Casher and Susskind [Casher A, Susskind L (1974) Phys Rev 9:436–460] have noted that in the light-front description, spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking is a property of hadronic wavefunctions and

CMS physics technical design report: Addendum on high density QCD with heavy ions

This report presents the capabilities of the CMS experiment to explore the rich heavy-ion physics programme offered by the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The collisions of lead nuclei at energies



Disorienting the Chiral Condensate at the QCD Phase Transition

I sketch how long wavelength modes of the pion field can be amplified during the QCD phase transition. If nature had been kinder, and had made the pion mass significantly less than the critical

Disoriented Chiral Condensate Formation in Heavy Ion Collisions

One of the main aims of present and upcoming high energy heavy ion collision experiments is to study new phases of matter at extreme temperature and density. It is expected that a nontrivial

Larger domains from resonant decay of disoriented chiral condensates

The decay of disoriented chiral condensates into soft pions is considered within the context of a linear sigma model. Unlike earlier analytic studies, which focused on the production of pions as the

Signals of a disoriented chiral condensate.

It is pointed out the relevance of the dilepton decay of lightvector mesons as a signal for formation of the disoriented condensate and the pre-dict that the decay ρ 0 → l + l − will be suppressed and/or the ρ resonance peakwidens, while the decayρ will not be affected by the condensates.

Can disoriented chiral condensates form? A dynamical perspective.

This work uses a density matrix based formalism that takes both thermal and quantum fluctuations into account nonperturbatively to argue that if the O(4) linear [sigma] model is the correct way to model the situation in QCD, then it is very unlikely, at least in the Hartree approximation, that a large DCC region will form.

Disoriented chiral condensate: Theory and phenomenology

These notes are an abbreviated version of lectures given at the 1997 Zakopane School. They contain two topics. The first is a description in elementary terms of the basic ideas underlying the

Chiral Symmetry Restoration and Dileptons in Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collisions

The current theoretical status in the analysis and interpretation of low-mass dilepton measurements in (ultra-) relativistic heavy-ion experiments is reviewed. Special emphasis is put on potential
