Phase transition from hadronic matter to quark-gluon matter is discussed for various regimes of temperature and baryon number density. For small and medium densities, the phase transition is accurately described in the framework of the Field Correlation Method, whereas at high density predictions are less certain and leave room for the phenomenological models. We study formation of multiquark states (MQS) at zero temperature and high density. Relevant MQS components of the nuclear matter can be… 
The d⁎(2380) in Neutron Stars — A New Degree of Freedom?
Abstract Elucidating the appropriate microscopic degrees of freedom within neutron stars remains an open question which impacts nuclear physics, particle physics and astrophysics. The recent
Manifestation of quark clusters in the emission of cumulative protons in the experiment on the fragmentation of carbon ions
The proton yields at an angle of 3.5° have been measured in the FRAGM experiment on the fragmentation of carbon ions with the energies T0 = 0.6, 0.95, and 2.0 GeV/nucleon on a beryllium target at the
Magnetic susceptibility at zero and nonzero chemical potential in QCD and QED
Magnetic susceptibility of the quark and electron gas is calculated in a closed form for any chemical potential μ summing the whole Matsubara series. For the quark gas and small μ≪T a strong rise
Nuclear fragmentation study at ITEP heavy ion facility
In an experiment performed at ITEP TWA heavy ion accelerator, the yields of hydrogen (p,d,t) and helium (from 3He to 8He) isotopes at 3.5? from fragmentation of 12C at T0 = 0.2 ? 3.2 GeV/nucleon on a
Dibaryons - a new state of matter?
New results in the field of dibaryons are discussed concentrating on the d ∗ (2380) resonance with I(J P ) = 0(3 + ), which has been observed first in the double- pionic fusion to deuterium and
Possibility of narrow resonances in nucleon-nucleon channels
Compound states manifest themselves as bound states, resonances, or primitives, and their character is determined by their interaction with the continuum. If the interaction experiences a
Cumulative protons in $^{12}$C fragmentation at intermediate energy
In the FRAGM experiment at heavy ion accelerator complex TWAC-ITEP, the proton yields at an angle 3.5 ◦ have been measured in fragmentation of carbon ions at T0 = 0.3, 0.6, 0.95 and 2.0 GeV/nucleon
Dibaryons at COSY
Experiments at the Juelich Cooler Synchrotron (COSY) have now found compelling evidence for a new state in the two-baryon system with mass 2380 MeV and width 70 MeV. The structure, containing six
Model equation of state to investigate the structure and evolution of superdense stars with a phase transition
A model equation of state that describes the phase transition to quark matter is proposed. This equation of state is used to construct hydrostatically equilibrium stellar models for various values of
Variational principle for stars with a phase transition
The variational principle for stars with a phase transition has been investigated. The term outside the integral in the expression for the second variation of the total energy of a star is shown to


Dibaryon Condensate in Nuclear Matter: Exact Analysis in One-Dimensional Models
Abstract Phase transitions of nuclear matter to the quark–gluon plasma with subsequent restoration of chiral symmetry have been widely discussed in the literature. We investigate the possibility for
In-medium vector meson properties and low-mass dilepton production from hot hadronic matter
The in-medium properties of the vector mesons are known to be modified significantly in hot and dense hadronic matter due to vacuum polarisation effects from the baryon sector in the Walecka model.
Vacuum phase transition at nonzero baryon density
Abstract It is argued that the dominant contribution to the interaction of quark–gluon plasma at moderate T ⩾ T c is given by the nonperturbative vacuum field correlators. Basing on that

Variational theory of hot nucleon matter
We develop a variational theory of hot nuclear matter in neutron stars and supernovae. It can also be used to study charged, hot nuclear matter which may be produced in heavy-ion collisions. This
Deconfinement and quark-gluon plasma
The theory of confinement and deconfinement is discussed as based on the properties of the QCD vacuum. The latter are described by field correlators of color-electric and color-magnetic fields in the

We have performed a P-matrix analysis of the existing nucleon-nucleon phase-shift analyses. The P matrix accounts for the short-range interactions between the six quarks; its poles correspond to

A model for the N-N interaction is proposed which has a long range part to account for the low energy properties and a short range component to incorporate the quark degrees of freedom. Based on the
