Finite temperature phase diagram of QCD with improved Wilson fermions

  title={Finite temperature phase diagram of QCD with improved Wilson fermions},
  author={Frithjof Karsch and E. Laermann and Manfred Oevers and P. Schmidt},
Abstract We present results of an ongoing study of two flavour QCD with Wilson fermions at finite temperature. We have used tree level Symanzik improvement in both the gauge and fermion part of the action. The phase diagram was previously determined on an 83 × 4 lattice and the existence of Aoki's phase demonstrated. On our current lattice of 122 × 24 × 4 we have extended the set of observables and studied chiral and thermal properties at light quark masses.

Omega, J/psi, and psi(') production in nuclear collisions and quark-gluon-plasma hadronization.
The transverse mass spectra of Omega, J/psi, and psi' in Pb+Pb collisions at 158A GeV are studied within a hydrodynamical model of the quark-gluon-plasma expansion and hadronization. The modelExpand
From fluid dynamics to microscopic transport approach
Here we are exploring the widespread features or the characteristics of the microscopic transport modeling and also the speculations made for the approach to fit it to the dynamics of high energyExpand


Finite-Temperature Phase Structure of Lattice QCD with the Wilson Quark Action for Two and Four Flavors
Abstract We present further analyses of the finite-temperature phase structure of lattice QCD with the Wilson quark action based on spontaneous breakdown of parity-flavor symmetry. Results areExpand
Fate of the critical line and chiral transition in finite-temperature lattice QCD with the Wilson quark action
Finite-temperature phase structure of lattice QCD with the Wilson quark action is analyzed. We show that the critical line at finite temperatures, defined to be the line of vanishing pion screeningExpand
Finite-temperature phase structure of lattice QCD with Wilson quark action.
Analytical and numerical evidence is presented that thecritical line forms a cusp at a finite gauge coupling, and the line of chiral transition runs past the tip of the cusp without touching the critical line. Expand
Chiral Symmetry on the Lattice with Wilson Fermions
Abstract The chiral properties of the continuum limit of lattice QCD with Wilson fermions are studied. We show that a partially conserved axial current can be defined, satisfying the usual currentExpand
Structure of critical lines in quenched lattice QCD with the Wilson quark action
The structure of critical lines of a vanishing pion mass for the Wilson quark action is examined in quenched lattice QCD. Numerical evidence is presented that the critical lines spread into fiveExpand
U(1) problem and lattice QCD
Abstract We propose a new solution to the U(1) problem on a lattice without directly referring to the spontaneous chiral-symmetry breaking; the parity and flavor symmetry are spontaneously brokenExpand
