Kurtosis and compressibility near the chiral phase transition

Abstract

Understanding the critical properties of the QCD medium and its phase diagram is a central problem in strong interaction physics [1]. Studies of QCD on the lattice at finite temperature and density show that the ratio of the quartic to quadratic fluctuations of the net quark number R4,2 (kurtosis) is a valuable probe of deconfinement and chiral dynamics [2… (More)
