A model study of QCD phase transition
Abstract:A new approach to the calculation of the vacuum pressure difference between the Nambu phase and the Wigner phase is proposed, which accommodates both temperature and baryon chemical potential appropriately. Based on this treatment, a continuum model study of a QCD phase structure is conducted within the framework of the Dyson–Schwinger equation and a phase diagram in the T–μ plane is consequently obtained. A comparison between our method and an earlier one on the calculation of vacuum pressure difference is given.
