Title: Order Parameters and Color-Flavor Center Symmetry in QCD

Abstract

Common lore implies that N -color QCD with massive quarks has no useful order parameters that can be nontrivial at zero baryon density. However, such order parameters do exist when there are n f quark flavors with a common mass and d g c d ( n f , N ) > 1 . These theories have a Z d color-flavor center symmetry arising from intertwined color center transformations and cyclic flavor permutations. Furthermore, the symmetry realization depends on the temperature, baryon chemical potential, and value of n f / N , with implications for conformal window studies and dense quark matter.
