Evolution of collisions and QGP

Extreme density and temperature allow the transition for the ordinary matter to the deconfined phase, in which quarks and gluons are free from their parent hadrons and they can interact with each other. Such conditions can be reached by ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions. Different phases of evolution of the matter are predicted according to theoretical … Continue reading Evolution of collisions and QGP

The QCD phase diagram

A phase diagram aims to describe the behaviour of matter at different conditions depending for example from variables such as pressure and temperature. In the QCD phase diagram the interactions between particles are ruled by the quantum chromodynamics. The QCD phase transition scheme, in fact, is yet under studies and one of the targets of … Continue reading The QCD phase diagram
