We discuss the quark masses and the elastic q q ¯ cross sections at finite chemical potential in the Nambu–Jona-Lasinio model. We comment the generic features of the cross sections as functions of the chemical potential, temperature and collision energy. Finally, we discuss their relevance in the construction of a relativistic transport model for heavy-ion collisions based on this effective Lagrangian. 



Observables in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions from two different transport approaches for the same initial conditions

For nucleus-nucleus collisions at energies currently available at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), we calculate observables in two different transport approaches, i.e., the n-body

The Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model of quantum chromodynamics

The Nambu--Jona-Lasinio model is reviewed in its flavor SU(2) and SU(3) versions applied to quarks. The dynamical generation of quark masses is demonstrated as a feature of chiral symmetry breaking.

Flavor dependence of baryon melting temperature in effective models of QCD

We apply the three-flavor (Polyakov-)Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model to generate baryons as quark-diquark bound states using many-body techniques at finite temperature. All the baryonic states belonging to

Molecular dynamics description of an expanding $q$/$\bar{q}$ plasma with the Nambu–Jona-Lasinio model and applications to heavy ion collisions at energies available at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider and the CERN Large Hadron Collider

We present a relativistic molecular dynamics approach based on the Nambu--Jona-Lasinio Lagrangian. We derive the relativistic time evolution equations for an expanding plasma, discuss the
