We study QCD with 2+1 flavors at nonzero temperature and nonzero chemical potential. We present preliminary results obtained from lattice calculations performed with an improved staggered fermions action (p4-action) on lattice with temporal extent N_t = 4 on a line of constant physics with the strange quark mass adjusted to its physical value and a pion mass of about 220 MeV. We compute at imaginary chemical potential and compare with Taylor expansion results. We focus our study on a range of…

Curvature of the QCD critical line with 2+1 HISQ fermions

We present results on the curvature of the critical line of QCD with 2+1 HISQ fermions at nonzero temperature and quark density obtained by analytic continuation from imaginary chemical potentials.

Lambda Phenomena: the Lambda points of liquid Helium and chiral QCD

The superfluid transition of liquid Helium shares an interesting phenomenon with the chiral limit of QCD: the specific heat is finite at the critical point, but has a cusp. From this follows an

Baryon Number, Strangeness and Electric Charge Fluctuations in QCD at High Temperature

We analyze baryon number, strangeness, and electric charge fluctuations as well as their correlations in QCD at high temperature. We present results obtained from lattice calculations performed with

The strongly interacting Quark Gluon Plasma, and the critical behaviour of QCD at imaginary chemical potential

We explore the highly non-perturbative hot region of the QCD phase diagram close to Tc by use of an imaginary chemical potential mu which avoids the sign problem. The number density and the quark

We present results on the equation of state in QCD with two light quark flavors and a heavier strange quark. Calculations with improved staggered fermions have been performed on lattices with
