▪ Abstract We review lattice QCD investigations at high temperature. After a short introduction to thermal QCD on the lattice, we report on the present understanding of the phase diagram and the…

Lattice QCD at finite temperature and density

Abstract.
QCD at finite temperature and density is becoming increasingly important for various experimental
programmes, ranging from heavy ion physics to astro-particle physics.
The non-perturbative…

Pressure of QCD at finite temperatures and chemical potentials

- Physics

We compute the perturbative expansion of the pressure of hot QCD to order g(6)ln g in the presence of finite quark chemical potentials. In this process we evaluate all two- and three-loop vacuum…

Weinberg power counting and the quark determinant at small chemical potential

- Physics
- 2010

We construct an effective action for QCD by expanding the quark determinant in powers of the chemical potential at finite temperature in the case of massless quarks. To cut the infinite series, we…

Real-time static potential in hot QCD

- Physics
- 2007

We derive a static potential for a heavy quark- antiquark pair propagating in Minkowski time at finite temperature, by defining a suitable gauge-invariant Green's function and computing it to first…

Two-loop QCD gauge coupling at high temperatures

- Physics
- 2005

We determine the 2-loop effective gauge coupling of QCD at high temperatures, defined as a matching coefficient appearing in the dimensionally reduced effective field theory. The result allows to…

The QCD phase diagram at zero and small baryon density

- Physics
- 2005

I review recent developments in determining the QCD phase diagram by means of lattice simulations. Since the invention of methods to side-step the sig n problem a few years ago, a number of…

High density QCD with static quarks.

- PhysicsPhysical review letters

In this approximation, the deconfinement transition seen at zero density becomes a smooth crossover at very small density (possibly for any nonzero density), and that at low enough temperature chiral symmetry remains broken at all densities.

We have studied, for the first time, screening masses obtained from glueball-like correlators in quantum chromodynamics with four light dynamical flavors of quarks in the temperature range 1.…

QCD and instantons at finite temperature

- Physics

The current understanding of the behavior of quantum chromodynamics at finite temperature is presented. Perturbative methods are used to explore the high-temperature dynamics. At sufficiently high…

Large-scale structure of the deconfined phase.

It is shown that a global SU(2) symmetry breaks if the temperature is high enough and it is argued that this new transition most likely coincides with deconfinement.

Imaginary chemical potential and finite fermion density on the lattice

- Physics

Standard lattice fermion algorithms run into the well-known sign problem at real chemical potential. In this paper we investigate the possibility of using imaginary chemical potential, and argue that…

Random matrix model of QCD at finite density and the nature of the quenched limit.

- PhysicsPhysical review letters
- 1996

A random matrix model is used to study chiral symmetry breaking in QCD at finite chemical potential and it is found that quenched QCD is not a simple $n\ensuremath{\rightarrow}0$ limit of QCD with n quarks.

- PhysicsPhysical review letters
- 1996

The free energy for QCD at high temperature {ital T} is calculated to order {ital g}{sup 5} using effective-field-theory methods to separate the contributions from the momentum scales 2{pi}{ital T}, and the perturbation series is well behaved if the running coupling constant is sufficiently small.

Spatial string tension in the deconfined phase of (3+1)-dimensional SU(2) gauge theory.

- PhysicsPhysical review letters
- 1993

It is shown, for the first time, that the spatial string tension is scaling on the lattice and thus is nonvanishing in the continuum limit, and is temperature independent below [ital T] and rises rapidly above.

Meron-Cluster Solution of Fermion Sign Problems

- Physics
- 1999

We present a general strategy to solve the notorious fermion sign problem using cluster algorithms. The method applies to various systems in the Hubbard model family as well as to relativistic…
