We apply the three-flavor (Polyakov-)Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model to generate baryons as quark-diquark bound states using many-body techniques at finite temperature. All the baryonic states belonging to the octet and decuplet flavor representations are generated in the isospin-symmetric case. For each state we extract the melting temperature at which the baryon may decay into a quark-diquark pair. We seek for an evidence of the strangeness dependence of the baryon melting temperature as suggested… 
Equation of state of a quark-meson mixture in the improved Polyakov-Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model at finite chemical potential
We study the equation of state of QCD using an improved version of the three-flavor Polyakov-Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model beyond the mean-field approximation. It incorporates the effects of unquenched
Calculation of dissociation temperature of nucleon using Gaussian expansion method
The first study of the dissociation temperature of nucleon in hot QCD medium in the framework of constituent quark model is presented. The temperature-dependent potential energy of the three quark
On the phase diagram of the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio Lagrangian
The (Polyakov) Nambu–Jona‐Lasinio approach is an effective theory for low energies, which shares with Quantumchromodynamics the global symmetries. This approach is easy to handle and allows for
Hyperons in thermal QCD: A lattice view
The hadron resonance gas (HRG) is a widely used description of matter under extreme conditions, e.g. in the context of heavy-ion phenomenology. Commonly used implementations of the HRG employ vacuum
Decuplet baryons in a hot medium
The thermal properties of the light decuplet baryons are investigated in the framework of the thermal QCD sum rules. In particular, the behavior of the mass and residue of the $$\Delta $$Δ, $$\Sigma
Impact of unphysical meson decays on the parameter fixing in the three-flavour Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model for different regularisation methods
We investigate the influence of the allowed unphysical meson decay into a quark-antiquark pair of the three flavour Nambu–Jona-Lasinio (NJL) model on its parameter fixing. This decay manifests in a
Transport Theory from the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio Lagrangian
Starting from the (Polyakov-) Nambu-Jona-Lasinio Lagrangian, (P)NJL, we formulate a transport theory which allows for describing the expansion of a quark-antiquark plasma and the subsequent
Degeneracy Patterns of Chiral Companions at Finite Temperature
This work reviews how different realizations of chiral partner degeneracy arise in different effective theories/models of QCD and discusses the intriguing case in which chiral symmetry restoration involves more than two chiral partners, recently addressed in the literature.
The Elastic q\bar{q} Cross Section in the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio Model
We discuss the quark masses and the elastic $q\bar q$ cross sections at finite chemical potential in the Nambu--Jona-Lasinio model. We comment the generic features of the cross sections as functions
Chiral symmetry restoration with three chiral partners
I discuss the masses of chiral partners in the context of chiral symmetry restoration at finite temperature. Using the Nambu–Jona-Lasinio model I first remind the usual situation where two mesons of


Phases of QCD: lattice thermodynamics and a field theoretical model
We investigate three-color QCD thermodynamics at finite quark chemical potential. Lattice QCD results are compared with a generalized Nambu Jona-Lasinio model in which quarks couple simultaneously to
Mesonic correlation functions at finite temperature and density in the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model with a Polyakov loop
We investigate the properties of scalar and pseudoscalar mesons at finite temperature and quark chemical potential in the framework of the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio (NJL) model coupled to the Polyakov loop
Is there a flavor hierarchy in the deconfinement transition of QCD?
Possible indications for flavor separation during the QCD crossover transition based on continuum extrapolated lattice QCD calculations of higher order susceptibilities are presented and a possible experimental verification of this prediction is proposed, based on the measurement ofHigher order moments of identified particle multiplicities.
Chiral and deconfinement aspects of the QCD transition
We present results on the chiral and deconfinement properties of the QCD transition at finite temperature. Calculations are performed with 2 + 1 flavors of quarks using the p4, asqtad, and HISQ/tree
Phase structure of the Polyakov-quark-meson model
The relation between the deconfinement and chiral phase transition is explored in the framework of a Polyakov-loop-extended two-flavor quark-meson (PQM) model. In this model the Polyakov loop
Standard particles in the SU(3) Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model and the Polyakov-NJL model
Using the Nambu and Jona-Lasinio model and a version of the model using a Polyakov loop, we expose the composite particles we managed to build with the u, d, s quarks. These are used for the first
