# Lattice QCD at imaginary chemical potential in the chiral limit.

@article{Clarke2021LatticeQA, title={Lattice QCD at imaginary chemical potential in the chiral limit.}, author={David Anthony Clarke and Jishnu Goswami and Frithjof Karsch and Anirban Lahiri and Marius Neumann and Christian Schmidt}, journal={Proceedings of The 38th International Symposium on Lattice Field Theory β PoS(LATTICE2021)}, year={2021} }

We report on an ongoing study on the interplay between Roberge-Weiss (RW) and chiral transitions in simulations of (2+1)-ο¬avor QCD with an imaginary chemical potential. We established that the RW endpoint belongs to the 3- π , Z 2 universality class when calculations are done with the Highly Improved Staggered Quark (HISQ) action in the RW plane with physical quark masses. We also have explored a range of quark masses corresponding to pion mass values, π π β₯ 40 MeV and found that theβ¦Β
