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
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
Five-loop epsilon expansion for U(n) × U(m) models: finite-temperature phase transition in light QCD
We consider the U(n) × U(m) symmetric Φ4 lagrangian to describe the finite-temperature phase transition in QCD in the limit of vanishing quark masses with n = m = N f flavors and unbroken anomaly at


Symmetry Breaking Through Bell-Jackiw Anomalies
In models of fermions coupled to gauge fields certain current-conservation laws are violated by Bell-Jackiw anomalies. In perturbation theory the total charge corresponding to such currents seems to
