A selfconsistent thermodynamic $T$-matrix approach is deployed to study the microscopic properties of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP), encompassing both light- and heavy-parton degrees of freedom in a unified framework. The starting point is a relativistic effective Hamiltonian with a universal color force. The input in-medium potential is quantitatively constrained by computing the heavy-quark (HQ) free energy from the static $T$-matrix and fitting it to pertinent lattice-QCD (lQCD) data. The… 
Non-perturbative Approach to Equation of State and Collective Modes of the QGP
We discuss a non-perturbative $T$-matrix approach to investigate the microscopic structure of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP). Utilizing an effective Hamiltonian which includes both light- and
Probing the in-medium QCD force by open heavy-flavor observables
The determination of the color force in a quark-gluon plasma (QGP) is a key objective in the investigation of strong-interaction matter. Open and hidden heavy-flavor observables in heavy-ion
Spectral and transport properties of quark–gluon plasma in a nonperturbative approach
Nonperturbative methods play an important role in quantum many-body systems, especially in situations with an interplay of continuum and bound states and/or large coupling strengths between the
Nonperturbative effects on radiative energy loss of heavy quarks
The radiative energy loss of fast partons traveling through the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) is commonly studied within perturbative QCD (pQCD). Nonperturbative (NP) effects, which are expected to become
Improved Gauss law model and in-medium heavy quarkonium at finite density and velocity
We explore the in-medium properties of heavy-quarkonium states at finite baryochemical potential and finite transverse momentum based on a modern complex-valued potential model. Our starting point is
One-dimensional complex potentials for quarkonia in a quark-gluon plasma
Master equations of the Lindblad type have recently been derived to describe the dynamics of quarkonium states in the quark-gluon plasma. Because their full resolution in three dimensions is very
Exploring the partonic phase at finite chemical potential within an extended off-shell transport approach
We extend the Parton-Hadron-String Dynamics (PHSD) transport approach in the partonic sector by explicitly calculating the total and differential partonic scattering cross sections as a function of


T-Matrix Approach to Strongly Coupled QGP
Based on a thermodynamic $T$-matrix approach we extract the potential $V$ between two static charges in the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) from fits to the pertinent lattice-QCD free energy. With suitable
T-matrix approach to quarkonium correlation functions in the quark-gluon plasma
We study the evolution of heavy quarkonium states with temperature in a quark-gluon plasma (QGP) by evaluating the in-medium Q-Q T-matrix within a reduced Bethe-Salpeter equation in both S- and
Thermodynamics of the Quark-Gluon Plasma within a T-matrix approach
The strongly-coupled phase of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) is studied here by resorting to a $T$-matrix formulation in which the medium is seen as a non-ideal gas of quasiparticles (quarks,
Quarkonia and heavy-quark relaxation times in the quark-gluon plasma
A thermodynamic T-matrix approach for elastic two-body interactions is employed to calculate spectral functions of open and hidden heavy-quark systems in the quark-gluon plasma. This enables the
Hadronic modes and quark properties in the quark-gluon plasma
Based on interaction potentials between a heavy quark and antiquark as extracted from recent QCD lattice calculations, we set up a Brueckner-type many-body scheme to study the properties of light
Selfconsistent evaluation of charm and charmonium in the quark-gluon plasma
A selfconsistent calculation of heavy-quark (HQ) and quarkonium properties in the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) is conducted to quantify flavor transport and color screening in the medium. The main tool
Static quark-antiquark potential in the quark-gluon plasma from lattice QCD.
It is found that the real part of the complex valued static quark-antiquark potential lies close to the color singlet free energies in Coulomb gauge and shows Debye screening above the (pseudo)critical temperature T_{c}.
Toward a theory of binary bound states in the quark-gluon plasma
Although at asymptotically high temperatures the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) is a gas of weakly interacting quasiparticles (modulo long-range magnetism), and it has quite different properties at
