We extend our previous study [Phys. Lett. B 643 (2006) 46] of the cross-over temperatures (Tc) of QCD. We improve our zero temperature analysis by using physical quark masses and finer lattices. In addition to the kaon decay constant used for scale setting we determine four quantities (masses of the ? baryon, K*(892) and (1020) mesons and the pion decay constant) which are found to agree with experiment. This implies that ? independently of which of these quantities is used to set the overall… Expand
