Quark Matter in QC2D
Hands, Simon and Kim, Seyong and Skullerud, Jon-Ivar (2007) Quark Matter in QC2D. European Physical Journal a: Hadrons and Nuclei , 31 (4). pp. 787-789. ISSN 1434-6001
Results are presented from a numerical study of lattice QCD with gauge group SU(2) and two flavors of Wilson fermion at non-zero quark chemical potential μ ≫ T. Studies of the equation of state, the superfluid condensate, and the Polyakov line all suggest that in addition to the low density phase of Bose-condensed diquark baryons, there is a deconfined phase at higher quark density in which quarks form a degenerate system, whose Fermi surface is only mildly disrupted by Cooper pair condensation.
