QCD Phase Structure Under Rotation

  title={QCD Phase Structure Under Rotation},
  author={Hao-Lei Chen and Xu-Guang Huang and Jinfeng Liao},
We give an introduction to the phase structure of QCD matter under rotation based on effective four-fermion models. The effects of the magnetic field on the rotating QCD matter are also explored. Recent developments along these directions are overviewed, with special emphasis on the chiral phase transition. The rotational effects on pion condensation and color superconductivity are also discussed. 


Electromagnetic triangle anomaly and neutral pion condensation in QCD vacuum
Abstract We study the QCD vacuum structure under the influence of an electromagnetic field with a nonzero second Lorentz invariant I 2 = E ⋅ B . We show that the presence of I 2 can induce neutralExpand
Chiral soliton lattice and charged pion condensation in strong magnetic fields
A bstractThe Chiral Soliton Lattice (CSL) is a state with a periodic array of topological solitons that spontaneously breaks parity and translational symmetries. Such a state is known to appear inExpand

Nambu–Jona-Lasinio model in a parallel electromagnetic field
Abstract We explore the features of the U A ( 1 ) and chiral symmetry breaking of the Nambu–Jona-Lasinio model without the Kobayashi–Maskawa–'t Hooft determinant term in the presence of a parallelExpand
Global $\Lambda$ hyperon polarization in nuclear collisions: evidence for the most vortical fluid
The extreme temperatures and energy densities generated by ultra-relativistic collisions between heavy nuclei produce a state of matter with surprising fluid properties. Non-central collisions haveExpand

    Topological term, QCD anomaly, and the η′ chiral soliton lattice in rotating baryonic matter
    We study the ground states of low-density hadronic matter and high-density color-flavor locked color superconducting phase in three-flavor QCD at finite baryon chemical potential under rotation. WeExpand
