Collision energy dependence of the critical end point from baryon number fluctuations in the Linear Sigma Model with quarks

We show that the Linear Sigma Model with quarks produces an effective description of the QCD phase diagram and of the system’s equilibrium distribution properties that deviate from those of the Hadron



QCD equation of state to O(mu(6)(B)) from lattice QCD

We calculated the QCD equation of state using Taylor expansions that include contributions from up to sixth order in the baryon strangeness and electric charge chemical potentials. Calculations have

We present results for the equation of state in ( 2 + 1 )-flavor QCD using the highly improved staggered quark action and lattices with temporal extent N τ = 6 , 8, 10, and 12. We show that these

QCD thermal phase transition in the presence of a small chemical potential

We propose a new method to investigate the thermal properties of QCD with a small quark chemical potential mu. Derivatives of quark and gluonic observables with respect to mu are computed at mu=0 for

Freeze-out conditions in heavy ion collisions from QCD thermodynamics.

We present a determination of freeze-out conditions in heavy ion collisions based on ratios of cumulants of net electric charge fluctuations. These ratios can reliably be calculated in lattice QCD

Thermodynamics of two flavor QCD to sixth order in quark chemical potential

We present results of a simulation of two flavor QCD on a 16{sup 3}x4 lattice using p4-improved staggered fermions with bare quark mass m/T=0.4. Derivatives of the thermodynamic grand canonical

Isentropic equation of state of 2-flavor QCD

Using Taylor expansions of the pressure obtained previously in studies of 2-flavor QCD at nonzero chemical potential we calculate expansion coefficients for the energy and entropy densities up to

Pressure and nonlinear susceptibilities in QCD at finite chemical potentials

When the free energy density of QCD is expanded in a Taylor series in the chemical potential $\ensuremath{\mu},$ the coefficients are the nonlinear quark number susceptibilities. We show that these

Chiral and deconfinement aspects of the QCD transition

We present results on the chiral and deconfinement properties of the QCD transition at finite temperature. Calculations are performed with 2 + 1 flavors of quarks using the p4, asqtad, and HISQ/tree

Comparison of chemical freeze-out criteria in heavy-ion collisions

One of the most remarkable results to emerge from heavy-ion collisions over the past two decades is the striking regularity shown by particle yields at all energies. This has led to several very
