Renormalization group approach towards the QCD phase diagram

The idea of the functional renormalization group and one-loop improved renormalization group flows are reviewed. The associated flow equations and nonperturbative approximations schemes for its

Universality, the QCD critical and tricritical point, and the quark number susceptibility

The quark number susceptibility near the QCD critical end-point (CEP), the tricritical point (TCP) and the O(4) critical line at finite temperature and quark chemical potential is investigated. Based

The 3-D O(4) universality class and the phase transition in two-flavor QCD

We determine the critical equation of state of the three-dimensional O(4) universality class. We first consider the small-field expansion of the effective potential (Helmholtz free energy). Then, we

The scaling equation of state of the 3-D O(4) universality class

We determine the scaling equation of state of the three-dimensional O(4) universality class, which is relevant for the finite-temperature transition of quantum chromodynamics with two light flavors.

Lattice determination of the critical point of QCD at finite T and μ

Based on universal arguments it is believed that there is a critical point (E) in QCD on the temperature (T) versus chemical potential (μ) plane, which is of extreme importance for heavy-ion

Two flavor chiral phase transition from nonperturbative flow equations

We employ nonperturbative flow equations to compute the equation of state for two flavor QCD within an effective quark meson model. This yields the temperature and quark mass dependence of quantities
