We interpret the phase structure of hadronic matter in terms of the basic dynamical and geometrical features of hadrons. Increasing the density of constituents of finite spatial extension, by increasing the temperature T or the baryochemical potential μ, eventually “fills the box” and eliminates the physical vacuum. We determine the corresponding transition as a function of T and μ through percolation theory. At low baryon density, this means a fusion of overlapping mesonic bags to one large… Expand
