Chiral symmetry breaking in hot matter
This series of three lectures covers (a) a basic introduction to symmetry breaking in general and chiral symmetry breaking in QCD, (b) an overview of the present status of lattice data and the
Fluctuation-induced modifications of the phase structure in ( 2 + 1 )-flavor QCD
The low-energy sector of QCD with $N_f = 2\!+\!1$ dynamical quark flavors at non-vanishing chemical potential and temperature is studied with a non-perturbative functional renormalization group
Thermodynamical properties of strongly interacting matter in a model with explicit chiral symmetry breaking interactions
We analyse the effects of the light and strange current quark masses on the phase diagram of QCD at finite temperature and vanishing baryonic chemical potential, computing the speed of sound, the
Meson screening masses in ( 2+1 )-flavor QCD
We present lattice QCD results for mesonic screening masses in the temperature range 140 MeV less than or similar to T less than or similar to 2500 MeV. Our calculations were carried out using (2 +
theta dependence of SU(N) gauge theories in the presence of a topological term
Abstract We review results concerning the θ dependence of 4D S U ( N ) gauge theories and QCD, where θ is the coefficient of the CP-violating topological term in the Lagrangian. In particular, we
Finite temperature study of the axial U(1) symmetry on the lattice with overlap fermion formulation
We examine the axial U(1) symmetry near and above the finite temperature phase transition in two-flavor QCD using lattice QCD simulations. Although the axial U(1) symmetry is always violated by
Eigenvalue spectra of QCD and the fate of UA(1) breaking towards the chiral limit
The finite temperature phase diagram of QCD with two massless quark flavors is not yet understood because of the subtle effects of anomalous UA(1) symmetry. In this work we address this issue by
On the nature of the finite-temperature transition in QCD
We investigate the nature of the finite-temperature transition in QCD with Nf massless flavors. Universality arguments show that a continuous phase transition may exist only if there is a stable
Evidence of effective axial U(1) symmetry restoration at high temperature QCD
We study the axial U(1) symmetry at a finite temperature in two-flavor lattice QCD. Employing the Mobius domain-wall fermions, we generate gauge configurations slightly above the critical temperature
