  • In the framework of a holographic QCD approach we study the influence of matter on the deconfinement temperature T{sub c}. We first consider the quark flavor number (N{sub f}) dependence of T{sub c}. We observe that T{sub c} decreases with N{sub f}, which is consistent with a lattice QCD result. We also delve into how the quark number density {rho}{sub q} affects the value of T{sub c}. We find that T{sub c} drops with increasing {rho}{sub q}. In both cases, we confirm that the contributions from quarks are suppressed by 1/N{sub c}, as it should be, compared to the onesmore » from a gravitational action (pure Yang-Mills theory)« less
  • We investigate the high-temperature phase of a dilaton flow deformation of the anti-de Sitter/conformal field theory correspondence. We argue that these geometries should be interpreted as the N=4 gauge theory perturbed by a SO(6) invariant scalar mass and that the high-temperature phase is just the well-known anti-de Sitter-Schwarzschild solution. We compute, within supergravity, the resulting Hawking-Page phase transition, which in this model can be interpreted as a deconfining transition in which the vacuum expectation value for the operator TrF{sup 2} dissolves. In the presence of quarks the model also displays a simultaneous chiral symmetry restoring transition with the Goldstone modemore » and other quark bound states dissolving into the thermal bath.« less
  • We study the phase transition from quark–gluon plasma to hadrons in the early universe in the context of non-equilibrium thermodynamics. According to the standard model of cosmology, a phase transition associated with chiral symmetry breaking after the electro-weak transition has occurred when the universe was about 1–10 μs old. We focus attention on such a phase transition in the presence of a viscous relativistic cosmological background fluid in the framework of non-detailed balance Hořava–Lifshitz cosmology within an effective model of QCD. We consider a flat Friedmann–Robertson–Walker universe filled with a non-causal and a causal bulk viscous cosmological fluid respectively and investigatemore » the effects of the running coupling constants of Hořava–Lifshitz gravity, λ, on the evolution of the physical quantities relevant to a description of the early universe, namely, the temperature T, scale factor a, deceleration parameter q and dimensionless ratio of the bulk viscosity coefficient to entropy density (ξ)/s . We assume that the bulk viscosity cosmological background fluid obeys the evolution equation of the steady truncated (Eckart) and full version of the Israel–Stewart fluid, respectively. -- Highlights: •In this paper we have studied quark–hadron phase transition in the early universe in the context of the Hořava–Lifshitz model. •We use a flat FRW universe with the bulk viscosity cosmological background fluid obeying the evolution equation of the steady truncated (Eckart) and full version of the Israel–Stewart fluid, respectively.« less
  • In this paper we derive holographic wave equations for hadrons with arbitrary spin starting from an effective action in a higher-dimensional space asymptotic to anti–de Sitter (AdS) space. Our procedure takes advantage of the local tangent frame, and it applies to all spins, including half-integer spins. An essential element is the mapping of the higher-dimensional equations of motion to the light-front Hamiltonian, thus allowing a clear distinction between the kinematical and dynamical aspects of the holographic approach to hadron physics. Accordingly, the nontrivial geometry of pure AdS space encodes the kinematics, and the additional deformations of AdS space encode themore » dynamics, including confinement. It thus becomes possible to identify the features of holographic QCD, which are independent of the specific mechanisms of conformal symmetry breaking. In particular, we account for some aspects of the striking similarities and differences observed in the systematics of the meson and baryon spectra.« less
