We review in detail recent advances in our understanding of the phase structure and the phase transitions of hadronic matter in strong magnetic fields B and zero quark chemical potentials µf. Many aspects of QCD are described using low-energy effective theories and models such as the MIT bag model, the hadron resonance gas model, chiral perturbation theory, the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio (NJL) model, the quark-meson (QM) model and Polyakov-loop extended versions of the NJL and QM models. We critically… Expand
Chiral magnetic properties of QCD phase-diagram
The QCD phase–diagram is studied, at finite magnetic field. Our calculations are based on the QCD effective model, the SU(3) Polyakov linear–sigma model (PLSM), in which the chiral symmetry isExpand
