# Remarks on the chiral phase transition in chromodynamics

## Abstract

The phase transition restoring chiral symmetry at finite temperatures is considered in a linear sigma model. For three or more massless flavors, the epsilon expansion predicts the phase transition is of first order. At high temperatures, the U/sub A/(1) symmetry will also be effectively restored.
