The phase diagram of QCD at finite isospin density

Presenter: Urs Wenger — ETH Zuerich

Philippe de Forcrand, Misha Stephanov and Urs Wenger

Using a canonical formalism, we determine the equation of state and the phase diagram of eight-flavour QCD, as a function of temperature and isospin density. Two mechanisms are at work: Bose condensation of pions at high density, and deconfinement at high temperature. We study their interplay and discuss implications for the baryonic density case.
