Gluonic phases, vector condensates, and exotic hadrons in dense QCD
Abstract
We study the dynamics in phases with vector condensates of gluons (gluonic phases) in dense twoflavor quark matter. These phases yield an example of dynamics in which the Higgs mechanism is provided by condensates of gauge (or gauge plus scalar) fields. Because vacuum expectation values of spatial components of vector fields break the rotational symmetry, it is natural to have a spontaneous breakdown both of external and internal symmetries in this case. In particular, by using the GinzburgLandau approach, we establish the existence of a gluonic phase with both the rotational symmetry and the electromagnetic U(1) being spontaneously broken. In other words, this phase describes an anisotropic medium in which the color and electric superconductivities coexist. It is shown that this phase corresponds to a minimum of the GinzburgLandau potential and, unlike the twoflavor superconducting (2SC) phase, it does not suffer from the chromomagnetic instability. The dual (confinement) description of its dynamics is developed and it is shown that there are light exotic vector hadrons in the spectrum, some of which condense. Because most of the initial symmetries in this system are spontaneously broken, its dynamics is very rich.

We study the phase structure and condensates of twoflavor QCD at finite isospin chemical potential in the framework of a confining, DysonSchwinger equation model. We find that the pion superfluidity phase is favored at high enough isospin chemical potential. A new gaugeinvariant mixed quarkgluon condensate induced by isospin chemical potential is proposed based on operator product expansion. We investigate the sign and magnitude of this new condensate and show that it is an important condensate in QCD sum rules at finite isospin density.

Coefficient functions of gluon and quark condensates in QCD sum rules for light vector mesons in the twoloop approximation
We calculate and analyze the corrections of order ..cap alpha../sub s//sup 2/ to the condensate coefficient functions /sub 0/ and /sub 0/ in the operator product expansion of the vacuum correlation function of two flavordiagonal vector currents of quarks in the MS scheme. We find that for the quark condensate the renormalizationinvariant criterion of applicability of perturbation theory to the calculation of the coefficient functions is not satisfied, in particular, in the analysis of the Phi meson. 
Chiral symmetry, the angular content of the vector current in QED and QCD, and the holographic description of hadrons
We perform a general chiral symmetry and unitarity based analysis of a local process of the fermionantifermion creation from the vacuum by a highenergy photon as well as an explicit partial wave analysis of the vector current in QED and QCD. Such a local process proceeds necessarily via a certain superposition of the S and Dwave contributions. These constraints are consistent with the wellknown theoretical and experimental results on e{sup +}e{sup }{yields}{gamma}{yields}{mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup }. Then a free quark loop in the 1{sup } channel, representing the leading term in the operator product expansion, contains both Swave and Dwave contributions. Thismore » 
Critical surface in hot and dense QCD with the vector interaction
We discuss the chiral phase transition of hot and dense quark matter. We illustrate that the firstorder phase transition is generally favored at high baryon density and the repulsive vectorvector interaction weakens the firstorder phase transition. We use the NambuJonaLasinio model with the Polyakov loop coupling for concreteness. We locate the QCD critical surface on the quark mass plane for various values of the vector coupling constant. We find that, with increasing quark chemical potential, the firstorder region in the quark mass plane could shrink for sufficiently large vector coupling. This may be a possible explanation for the recent latticemore » 
Masses of vector bosons in twocolor dense QCD based on the hidden local symmetry
We construct a lowenergy effective Lagrangian for the twocolor QCD including the 'vector' bosons (mesons with J{sup P}=1{sup } and diquark baryons with J{sup P}=1{sup +}) in addition to the pseudoNambuGoldstone bosons with a degenerate mass M{sub {pi}}(mesons with J{sup P}=0{sup } and baryons with J{sup P}=0{sup +}) based on the chiral symmetry breaking pattern of SU(2N{sub f}){yields}Sp(2N{sub f}) in the framework of the hidden local symmetry. We investigate the dependence of the vector boson masses on the baryon number density {mu}{sub B}. We show that the {mu}{sub B}dependence signals the phase transition of U(1){sub B} breaking. We find thatmore »
