The nature of QCD phase transition is studied with massless up and down quarks and a light strange quark, using the Wilson formalism for quarks on a lattice with the temporal direction extensionNt=4. We find that the phase transition is of first order for the physical strange quark mass.

The QCD Vacuum as an Instanton Liquid
We review recent progress in understanding the importance of instanton effects in QCD. Instantons provide a mechanism for quark and gluon condensation, explain the U(1)A anomaly and the appearance of
Peaks above the Harrison-Zel’dovich Spectrum Due to the QCD Transition
The transition from the quark-gluon plasma to a hadrons gas in the early universe affects the evolution of primordial cosmological perturbations. If the phase transition is first order, the sound
Lattice investigations of the QCD phase diagram
To understand the physics in the early universe as well as in heavy ion collisions a throughout understanding of the theory of strong interaction, quantum chromodynamics (QCD), is important. Lattice

Gravitational Waves from the Cosmological Quark-Hadron Phase Transition Revisited
The recent claim by the NANOGrav collaboration of a possible detection of an isotropic gravitational wave background stimulated a series of investigations searching for the origin of such a signal.

Quark confinement and number of flavors in strong coupling lattice QCD.
It is shown that even in the strong coupling limit, when the number of flavors exceeds 7, quarks are not confined and chiral symmetry is not spontaneously broken for light quarks.
The SU(3) phase transitions in the presence of light dynamical quarks

Abstract The chiral properties of the continuum limit of lattice QCD with Wilson fermions are studied. We show that a partially conserved axial current can be defined, satisfying the usual current
Nature of the finite temperature transition in QCD with strange quark
The finite temperature transition in QCD is studied using Wilson quarks for the cases of NF = 2, 3 and 2+1. For NF = 2 the transition is smooth in the chiral limit on both Nt = 4 and 6 lattices. For
