QCD Phase Diagram

Main Goals:

- Physics of the Early Universe

In general

- Behavior of nuclear matter under extreme T,μ,B,E …

Specific Goals:

- Interplay between various phase transitions
- Confinement-Deconfinement
- Chiral Symmetry Restoration

Two different aspects:

- Static aspects
- Dynamical aspects

QCD Phase Diagram

Static aspects:

Lattice QCD (deficits)

- It is difficult to implement dynamical (physical) quarks
- It is difficult to implement a finite and large μ in MC calculations

Nevertheless:

The speed of sound

KEYWORD: THERMAL EQUILIBRIUM

(Time plays no major role)

QCD Phase Diagram

Dynamical (non-equilibrium) aspects:

Methods

- Real-time thermal field theory
- …
- Relativistic hydrodynamics (Rel. fluid dynamics Landau ‘1950)
- Non-dissipative (non-viscous) hydrodynamics
- Dissipative hydrodynamics

Transport properties

T-dependence of shear and bulk viscosities

T-dependence of the speed of sound

e.g. Study the new strongly correlated QGP phase created at RHIC

RHIC: Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider

The sQGP phase behaves as a nearly perfect fluid

- Jet quenching
- Elliptic flow
- Au-Au collisions with the energy of 100 GeV per nucleon
- The motion of particles is relativistic
- The nuclei are Lorentz contracted by a factor of
- Enormous entropy production (~7000 particles are produced)
- Very short equilibration time ~6 fm/c

RHIC: Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider

- Magnetic field production in off-central HI collisions
- Due to very large relative angular momentum
- Due to electrically charged ions in the initial state, and due to the electric charge asymmetry in the distributions of the produced hadrons

(Kharzeev et al. 2007)

- The produced magnetic field is perp. to the reaction plane

Event to event P and CP violation (Kharzeev et al. 2008)

Our goal here:

Study the effect of a constant and strong magnetic field on the speed of sound in a magnetized hot QGP

N.S., 0905.2097 [hep-ph]

Our Method

- Consider an effective field theory model of QCD (NJL model) in the presence of a constant (fixed) and strong magnetic field
- Integrate out the fermions An effective theory in a background strong magnetic field and consisting of massive mesons
- The mesons are massive due to dynamical chiral symmetry breaking in the presence of strong magnetic field [Magnetic Catalysis]
- The resulting system can be regarded as a magnetized fluid consisting of massive mesons and exhibiting chiral phase transition at some Tc

It mimics a magnetized hot QGP near the chiral critical point

Our Method

- Extend the thermodynamical and hydrodynamical relations ChiralMagnetohydrodynamical (CMHD) formulation
- Performing a 1st order stability analysis Dispersion relation of plane waves propagating in this magnetized hot medium
- Linearizing the dispersion relation Speed of sound v_s

What we expect here:

- An anisotropy in the velocity distribution in this medium due to the presence of a fixed external magnetic field
- Similar T dependence of v_s as was observed in Lattice QCD

v_12 has a maximum at T~0.4-0.45 Tc

v_12 remains constant for T>Tc

v_13 has, independent on θ, a minimum at T~0.4-0.45 Tc

v_13 remains also constant for T>Tc
