We argue that although at asymptotically high temperatures the QGP in bulk behaves as a gas of weakly interacting quasiparticles (modulo long-range magnetism), at temperatures up to few times the critical temperature $T_c$ it displays different properties. If the running of the QCD coupling constant continues in the Coulomb phase till the screening length scale, it reaches the strong coupling treshold $\alpha_s(m_D)\sim 1$. As a result, the Coulomb phase supports weakly bound Coulombic s-wave… CONTINUE READING
