Phase diagram at finite temperature and quark density in the strong coupling limit of lattice QCD for color SU(3)
Abstract
We study the phase diagram of quark matter at finite temperature (T) and chemical potential ({mu}) in the strong coupling limit of lattice QCD for color SU(3). We derive an analytical expression of the effective free energy as a function of T and {mu}, including baryon effects. The finite temperature effects are evaluated by integrating over the temporal link variable exactly in the Polyakov gauge with an antiperiodic boundary condition for fermions. The obtained phase diagram shows the first and the second order phase transition at low and high temperatures, respectively, and those are separated by the tricritical point in the chiral limit. Baryon has effects to reduce the effective free energy and to extend the hadron phase to a larger {mu} direction at low temperatures.

We study chiralsymmetry breaking in lattice QCD at finite temperature (T) and at nonzero chemical potential (..mu..). Working at strong coupling in the Hamiltonian formalism with staggered fermions we analyzed the order of the chiral phase transition in the ..mu..T plane for one and two flavors. We found that ..mu../sub c/ (T = 0) is independent of the number of flavors, while T/sub c/ (..mu.. = 0) decreases when the number of flavors increases. We investigated the dependence of ..mu../sub c/ (T = 0) on irrelevant terms added to the Hamiltonian.

Phase diagram evolution at finite coupling in strong coupling lattice QCD
We investigate the chiral phase transition in the strong coupling lattice QCD at finite temperature and density with finite coupling effects. We adopt one species of staggered fermion, and develop an analytic formulation based on strong coupling and cluster expansions. We derive the effective potential as a function of two order parameters, the chiral condensate {sigma} and the quark number density {rho}{sub q}, in a selfconsistent treatment of the nexttoleading order (NLO) effective action terms. NLO contributions lead to modifications of quark mass, chemical potential, and the quark wave function renormalization factor. While the ratio {mu}{sub c}(T=0)/T{sub c}({mu}=0) is toomore » 
Phase diagram of quarkantiquark and diquark condensates at finite temperature and density in the 3dimensional GrossNeveu model
We construct the phase diagrams of the quarkantiquark and diquark condensates at finite temperature and density in the 3dimensional (3D) 2flavor GrossNeveu model. We found that, in contrast to the case of the 4D NambuJonaLasinio model, there is no region where the quarkantiquark and diquark condensates coexist. The phase diagrams obtained for some parameter region show similar structure with the 4D QCD phase diagram. 
Equation of state and heavyquark free energy at finite temperature and density in two flavor lattice QCD with Wilson quark action
We study the equation of state at finite temperature and density in twoflavor QCD with the renormalization group improved gluon action and the cloverimproved Wilson quark action on a 16{sup 3}x4 lattice. Along the lines of constant physics at m{sub PS}/m{sub V}=0.65 and 0.80, we compute the second and forth derivatives of the grand canonical partition function with respect to the quark chemical potential {mu}{sub q}=({mu}{sub u}+{mu}{sub d})/2 and the isospin chemical potential {mu}{sub I}=({mu}{sub u}{mu}{sub d})/2 at vanishing chemical potentials, and study the behaviors of thermodynamic quantities at finite {mu}{sub q} using these derivatives for the case {mu}{sub I}=0.more » 
Phase diagram of QCD at finite temperature and chemical potential from lattice simulations with dynamical Wilson quarks
We present the first results for lattice QCD at finite temperature T and chemical potential {mu} with four flavors of Wilson quarks. The calculations are performed using the imaginary chemical potential method at {kappa}=0,0.001,0.15,0.165,0.17 and 0.25, where {kappa} is the hopping parameter, related to the bare quark mass m and lattice spacing a by {kappa}=1/(2ma+8). Such a method allows us to do large scale Monte Carlo simulations at imaginary chemical potential {mu}=i{mu}{sub I}. By analytic continuation of the data with {mu}{sub I}<{pi}T/3 to real values of the chemical potential, we expect at each {kappa} setmembership sign [0,{kappa}{sub chiral}], a phasemore »
