We present results from simulations of two color QCD with two Wilson quark flavors in the presence of a quark chemical potential μ at two different lattice spacings. The equation of state, conformal anomaly, superfluid order parameter, and Polyakov line are all discussed. Our results suggest that the transitions from hadronic to quark matter and from confined to deconfined matter occur at distinct values of μ, consistent with the existence of a quarkyonic phase in this model.

Dense two-color QCD towards continuum and chiral limits

We study two-color QCD with two flavors of Wilson fermion as a function of quark chemical potential mu and temperature T, for two different lattice spacings and two different quark masses. We find

We present the results of a low-temperature scan of the phase diagram of dense two-color QCD with Nf = 2 quarks. The study is conducted using lattice simulation with rooted staggered quarks. At small
