"Convergence of hydrodynamic series and dual gravity" video
Abstract:
In quantum field theory at finite temperature and density, hydrodynamic
modes (e.g. sound waves) are characterised by gapless dispersion
relations usually considered as infinite series in powers (or fractional
powers) of the spatial momentum squared. These series naturally arise
within the classical hydrodynamic gradient expansion understood as an
effective theory. Motivated by the search for limits of a reliable
hydrodynamic description, we discuss the problem of determining the
radii of convergence of such series and its dependence on the coupling.
Using dual gravity methods, at least for some theories it is possible to
compute the radius of convergence at infinite and large but finite
coupling. The obstruction to convergence is caused by the level-crossing
phenomenon in the quasinormal spectra of dual black holes. Our
calculation shows that the radius of convergence in these theories is a
piecewise continuous function of the coupling with an overall tendency
to decrease with the coupling decreasing.

"Сходимость гидродинамических рядов и дуальная гравитация"
Гидродинамические моды (например, звук) в квантовой теории поля при
конечной температуре и плотности
характеризуются бесщелевыми дисперсионными соотношениями,
представляющими собой бесконечные ряды
по степеням волнового числа в рамках классического гидродинамического
градиентного разложения. Мы рассмотрим вопрос о радиусе
сходимости этих рядов и об аналитическом продолжении дисперсионных
соотношений. Используя методы дуальной гравитации, для некоторых
теорий удается вычислить радиусы сходимости в режиме бесконечной и
конечной
сильной связи и показать, что они определяются пересечением уровней
квазинормального спектра дуальных черных бран. Вычисления показывают,
что радиус
сходимости в этих примерах является кусочно-непрерывной функцией
константы связи,
имеющей глобальную тенденцию к убыванию с ослаблением связи.

"Triple nuclear collisions and new perspectives to explore the matter properties under new extreme conditions" video
Abstract:
We suggest to explore an entirely new method to experimentally and
theoretically study the phase diagram of strongly interacting matter
based on the triple nuclear collisions (TNC). The key element of such
experiments is to use the superthin solid target operated in the core of
two colliding beams [1]. Our approach is based on the successful
data-taking in the LHCb experiment in which the colliding and fixed
gaseous target modes are running simultaneously [2]. The estimates show
that under the high luminosity LHC conditions the TNC rate might reach
an observable level of 1 event over 1000 s.
We simulated the TNC using the UrQMD 3.4 model [3, 4] at the beam
center-of-mass collision energies √s = 200 GeV and √s = 2.76 TeV. We
found that in the most central and simultaneous TNC the initial baryonic
charge density is about 3 times higher than the one achieved in the
usual binary nuclear collisions at the same energies [5]. As a
consequence, a production of protons and Λ-hyperons is increased by 2
and 1.5, respectively, while a sizable suppression of their
antiparticles is observed.
At the beam center-of-mass collision energies of 10-40 GeV, the
production of protons as well as of Λ-hyperons is enhanced approximately
by a factor of 2.2 compared to the binary collisions, while the positive
kaons are enhanced by 1.5. Hence we conclude that in the TNC method it
is possible to create substantially denser strange matter than in the
binary collisions. We argue that this method at lower energies can be of
principal importance for searching the (tri)critical endpoint of the QCD
phase diagram [5].

"About anomalous superfluidity, superconductivity and ferromagnetism in nuclear systems" video
Abstract:
First, I’ll remind superfluid and superconducting properties of the condensate of the complex scalar field. A possibility of s-wave pion condensate and 1S0 nn and pp pairings in baryon matter will be discussed. Response on external static magnetic field (Abrikosov filamentary lattice) and rotation, will be considered. Then I discuss peculiarities of superfluid and superconducting boson sub-systems obeying roton-like spectrum. As example, p-wave pion condensation in baryon matter and specificity of the behavior of the charged pion condensate in external static magnetic field will be discussed. Some similarities in description of cold two-component dipolar gases and pion condensate will be mentioned. Then focus will be made on the study of phases of the complex neutral and charged vector boson coupled with magnetic field by the Zeeman coupling. I will discuss presence of nonmagnetic and ferromagnetic superfluid phases. It will be shown that in a strong magnetic field spin-triplet pairing and ferromagnetic superfluidity continue to exist above the ``old'' phase-transition critical temperature. Spin-triplet pairing of neutral and charged fermions at negligible spin-orbital interaction will be similarly considered. Then various sub-phases of 3P2 nn, pp and 3S1 np pairings in baryon matter will be described. A possibility of various color superconducting phases will be mentioned. Some estimates will be done in the BCS limit and beyond.

"Advanced Hadron Resonance Gas Model, Chemical Freeze-out of Light Nuclei in High Energy Nuclear Collisions and Resolution of the Hyper-triton Chemical Freeze-out Puzzle" video
Abstract:
The measurements of the light (anti-, hyper-)nuclei at LHC and highest RHIC energies led to a serious discussion of the possible mechanisms of their production, thermalization and chemical/kinetic freeze-outs. A new strategy [1] to analyze the chemical freeze-out of such nuclei produced in high energy collisions of heavy atomic nuclei within an advanced formulation of the hadron resonance gas model will be presented. This strategy is based on two different, but complementary approaches to model the hard- core repulsion between the light (anti-, hyper-)nuclei and hadrons. The first approach uses an approximate treatment of the equivalent hard-core radius of a roomy nuclear cluster and pions, while the second approach is rigorously derived recently in [1] using a self-consistent treatment of classical excluded volumes of light (anti-, hyper-)nuclei and hadrons. By construction, in a hadronic medium dominated by pions, both approaches should give the same results. Applying this strategy to the analysis of hadronic and light (anti-, hyper-)nuclei multiplicities measured by ALICE at √s = 2.76 TeV and by STAR at √s = 200 GeV it was possible to avoid the existing ambiguity in the description of light (anti-,hyper-)nuclei data and to determine the chemical freeze-out parameters of such nuclei with very high accuracy and confidence.
Using this strategy it was also possible to resolve a long standing problem to describe the light (anti-,hyper-)nuclei multiplicities including the hyper-triton measured by the STAR Collaboration, known as the hyper-triton chemical freeze-out puzzle [2]. Its solution was found by employing the hard-core radius of the (anti-)Λ hyperons which was found in our earlier works. One of the most striking results of our analysis made in [2] is that for the most probable scenario of chemical freeze-out at the STAR energy of collisions the obtained parameters allow us to simultaneously reproduce the values of the experimental ratios S3 and S3 which were not included in the fit. Also we were able to elucidate some peculiar properties of the QGP bags at STAR and ALICE energies of collisions.

"Monopole and instanton effects in QCD" video
Abstract:
This research project aims to reveal the effects of magnetic monopoles and instantons in QCD on observables. Monopoles cause quark confinement through condensations in the QCD vacuum, and instantons induce chiral symmetry breaking. The monopoles and instantons closely relate to each other and interact among quarks and gluons in the QCD vacuum. It is not easy to show the relations and interactions among them by phenomenological computations because of the strong interaction in the low-energy of QCD. Therefore, we perform the numerical simulations of lattice gauge theory.
We first add a pair of monopole and anti-monopole, varying the magnetic charges of the monopole and anti-monopole, to the QCD vacua.
We then numerically calculate the observables using the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the overlap Dirac operator that preserves the exact chiral symmetry in lattice gauge theory. The renormalization constants for the chiral condensate, quark masses, and decay constants are considered. We compare the numerical results with the predictions in the random matrix theory, instanton liquid model, instanton vacuum, etc., and evaluate the effects on the observables.
We have found that the additional monopoles and anti-monopoles make instantons and anti-instantons without changing the vacuum structure [1]. We discover the effects of the created instantons and anti-instantons on the observables with increasing the number density of instantons and anti-instantons as follows [2]: the chiral condensate (negative values) decreases, light quark masses become heavy, and decay constants and masses of the light mesons increase. The decay width and lifetime of the charged pion are estimated using these outcomes. The decay width of the charged pion becomes wider than the experiment, and the lifetime of the charged pion becomes shorter than the experiment. Finally, we obtain quantitative relations among these observables and the number density of instantons and anti-instantons.
In this seminar, I will talk about new research results [2].

"Particle polarization in heavy-ion collisions at moderately relativistic energies" pdf video
Abstract:
Predictions for the global Λ polarization in Au+Au collisions in current and upcoming experiments at moderately relativistic energies, 2.4≤√s_NN≤12 GeV, are made. The simulations were performed within the model of the three-fluid dynamics with three different equations of state. It is predicted that the global polarization increases with the collision energy decrease. At√s_NN≈3 GeV this increase slows down or even a maximum is reached, depending on the centrality. Expansion of the rapidity window, in which the polarization is measured, results in the global polarization increase. This indirectly indicates that the global polarization is larger outside the midrapidity region than that in the midrapidity. Possibility of measuring the polarization of hyperons at moderately relativistic collision energies, which are and will be available at various laboratories, are analyzed. Whereas the collision dynamics becomes less equilibrium with the collision energy decrease, all presently available approaches to the particle polarization are based on the assumption of thermal equilibrium. Therefore, the problem of thermalization in nuclear collisionsis analyzed. It is found that the equilibrium is achieved at the freeze-out stage, only this equilibration takes longer at moderately relativistic energies.

"On rotating quark-gluon plasma within the holographic approach"
Abstract:
We consider a 5d Kerr-AdS black hole to describe a rotating quark-gluon
plasma using the holography duality.
We study thermodynamics of the 5d Kerr-AdS black holes. We find that
rotation has an influence on the first order phase transition, namely,
it decreases the critical temperature.
We also discuss heavy quark dynamics in the quark-gluon plasma. For our
analysis we follow up the holographic approach, where the motion of a
heavy quark in QGP is dual to an open string with an endpoint at the
boundary of the background under consideration. In our case the string
is stretched down from the Kerr- AdS space boundary to the black hole
horizon.
The dynamics of the string is described by the Nambu-Goto action. To
solve the corresponding equations we expand an ansatz for solutions in
series by a rotating parameter, then we solve the linearized version of
these equations of motion and calculate the components of conjugate
momenta. According to the holographic dictionary the force that acts on
a heavy quark moving in QGP is related to the components of the
conjugate string momenta. We also find the thermal mass of the quark at
rest, that is associated to the total energy of the straight static
string. We perform calculations both in Boyer-Lindquist
(rotating-at-infinity frame) and AdS (static-at-infinity frame)
coordinate systems and find a good agreement with the results obtained
from the holographic model of the lower dimension.

Abstract:
We examine the formation of vortical "smoke rings" as a result
of thermalization of energy lost by a jet. We simulate the formation and
evolution of these rings using hydrodynamics and define an observable
that allows to probe this phenomenon experimentally. We argue that
observation of vorticity associated with jets would be an experimental
confirmation of the thermalization of the energy lost by quenched jets,
and also a probe of shear viscosity.

"Influence of rotation on the confinement/deconfinement transition in gluodynamics" video
Abstract:
The influence of relativistic rotation on the confinement/deconfinement transition in gluodynamics has been studied within lattice simulation. The simulation has been performed in the reference frame which rotates with the system under investigation, where rotation is reduced to external gravitational field. To study the confinement/deconfinement transition the Polyakov loop and its susceptibility are calculated for various lattice parameters and the values of angular velocities which are characteristic for heavy-ion collision experiments. Different types of boundary conditions (open, periodic, Dirichlet) are imposed in directions, orthogonal to rotation axis. The obtained results show that the critical temperature of the confinement/deconfinement transition in gluodynamics increases with increasing angular velocity. This conclusion does not depend on the boundary conditions used in our study. The results of this investigation and other works devoted to rotating QCD are discussed.
В рамках решеточного моделирования исследовано влияние вращения на фазовый переход конфайнмент/деконфайнмент в глюодинамике. Моделирование проводилось во вращающейся системе отсчёта, где вращение задается с помощью внешнего гравитационного поля. Для изучения перехода конфайнмент/деконфайнмент были вычислены значения петли Полякова и ее восприимчивости для различных параметров решётки и угловых скоростей, характерных для экспериментов по столкновению тяжёлых ионов. При расчётах были использованы различные граничные условия (открытые, периодические, Дирихле) в направлениях, перпендикулярных к оси вращения. Полученные результаты показывают, что критическая температура перехода конфайнмент/деконфайнмент квадратично растёт с увеличением угловой скорости, причём данный вывод не зависит от используемых граничных условий. Обсуждаются результаты проведённого исследования, а также результаты других теоретических работ, посвященных изучению вращающейся КХД.

"Scaled variables and the quark-hadron duality" video pdf pptx
Abstract:
The thermodynamic quantities of the ideal gas of hadrons and the (2+1)-flavor lattice QCD scaled by the effective degeneracy factors of the corresponding models are compared. We have found that in terms of the scaled variables the quark-hadron duality of the lattice QCD and the hadron resonance gas (HRG) model disappears. However, we have revealed that the scaled variables lead to the quark-hadron duality of the lattice QCD and the quantum ideal gas of kaons and antikaons, namely, the ideal gas of those hadrons that contain all the three quarks u,d,s and their antiquarks. Satisfactory agreement between the scaled results of the kaon ideal gas and the lattice QCD data is achieved at large values of the volume in the entire temperature range. In the ideal gas of kaons there is no any phase transition. Nevertheless, in our calculations the scaled thermodynamic quantities of the ideal gas and the lattice QCD follow the same qualitative behavior and are consistent with each other especially at high temperatures in the perturbative region and the Stefan–Boltzmann limit.
Проведено сравнение термодинамических величин идеального газа адронов и решеточной КХД с (2+1)-ароматом, масштабированных с помощью эффективных факторов вырождения соответствующих моделей. Мы обнаружили, что, с точки зрения масштабированных переменных, кварк-адронная дуальность решеточной КХД и модели адронного резонансного газа (HRG) исчезает. Однако мы обнаружили, что масштабированные переменные приводят к кварк-адронной дуальности решеточной КХД и квантового идеального газа каонов и антикаонов, а именно, идеального газа тех адронов, которые содержат все три кварка u, d, s и их антикварки. Удовлетворительное согласование масштабированных результатов идеального газа каонов и данных решеточной КХД достигается при больших значениях объема во всем диапазоне температур. В идеальном газе каонов фазовый переход отсутствует. Тем не менее, в наших расчетах масштабированные термодинамические величины идеального газа каонов и решеточной КХД следуют одинаковому качественному поведению и согласуются друг с другом, особенно при высоких температурах в пертурбативной области и в пределе Стефана – Больцмана.

"Tsallis Quantum Distributions and Propagation of Non-linear Waves in QGP" video
Abstract:
Unapproximated Tsallis quantum single-particle distributions can be
derived using the techniques of the Tsallis statistical mechanics in
terms of a series summation. Unlike the classical case, the zeroth-order
terms of the sums representing the quantum single-particle distributions
do not have a similarity with the phenomenological distributions used in
the literature. However, taking the factorization approximation enhances
this similarity. We employ these factorized zeroth-order Tsallis quantum
distributions to calculate the thermodynamic variables and the equation
of state and study the propagation of energy density perturbation in a
hot, ideal, and non-extensive quark-gluon medium.

"Core meets corona: Lambda and anti-Lambda polarization in
peripheral high-energy heavy-ion collisions"
Abstract:
The STAR Beam Energy Scan program has found a remarkable
behavior for the global polarization of Lambdas and anti-Lambdas
produced in peripheral high-energy Au + Au collisions: the latter is larger than
the former for lower collision energies and the difference decreases
with increasing collision energy. In this talk I show that a two-component
source to model the collision region, consisting of a high density core
and a lower density corona, can quantitatively describe the behavior of
these polarizations as functions of the collision energy. The calculation makes use of the relaxation times that s-quarks and -antiquarks produced in the core take to align with the thermal vorticity during the life-time of the quark-gluon plasma phase that I also show how can be computed from a thermal field theoretical approach. I show that, in spite of the fact that s-antiquarks (that hadronize into anti-Lambdas) take longer to align their spins compared to s-quarks (that hadronize into Lambdas), when combining this information with the larger abundance of Lambdas compared to anti-Lambdas in the corona, the polarization excitation function can be
well described.

вихревой эффект" (по материалам кандидатской диссертации)
Abstract:
В последнее время активно обсуждается связь между релятивистской
гидродинамикой и квантовой теорией поля. Так, показано, что прямым
следствием киральной квантовой аномалии является возникновение
кирального тока во вращающейся среде вдоль направления угловой скорости
- явление известное как Киральный вихревой эффект. Нами были вычислены
высшие поправки к данному эффекту по угловой скорости и ускорению на
основе фундаментального оператора плотности Зубарева. Для этого впервые
описан алгоритм вычисления высших порядков теории возмущений по тепловой
завихрённости в рамках квантовой теории поля при конечных температурах.
С помощью другого квантово-статистического метода ковариантной функции
Вигнера был найден алгоритм нахождения непертурбативных средних
физических величин. Данный алгоритм позволил получить точную в рамках
этого метода формулу для кирального тока, позволяющую сделать вывод о
роли угловой скорости и ускорения в гидродинамике. А именно, угловая
скорость играет роль действительного химического потенциала. Следствием
данной концепции является показанный нами новый эффект подавления
аксиального тока при угловой скорости меньшей массы. Ускорение при этом
появляется как мнимый химический потенциал. Следствием этой концепции
является появление нестабильности в токе при температуре Унру.

Abstract:
We examine hydrodynamics from the perspective of an effective field
theory. The microscopic scale in this case is the thermalization scale,
and the macroscopic scale is the gradient, with thermal fluctuations
playing the role of ℏ. We argue that this method can be applied both, to
consistently include thermal fluctuations in the theory, and to extend
hydrodynamics to systems whose microscopic structure is non-trivial. For
the latter, we discuss the case of spin polarization and gauge theories.

"Induced charges and fields in QGP and dense fermion media inmagnetic fields at finite temperature" pdf
Abstract:
In QCD, the deconfinement phase transition is accompanied by the creation of the A0=const gluon condensate and strong temperature dependent chromomagnetic H^3,H^8 and usual magnetic H^em fields. A gauge invariance of the A0 condensation is proven within the Nielsen identity method. It is shown that the effectiveaction accounting for the one-loop, two-loop and plasmon diagrams satisfies the Nielsen identity. At this background, the color charges Q3_ind and Q8_ind are generated. They are temperature dependent and produce related color electric fields E3_color and E8_color.
Similar phenomenon - generation of induced electric charge Qel_ind and electric field E_ind - happens in a dense fermionic media with non-zero chemical potential. We investigate that at finite temperature and externalmagnetic field.
All these may serve as the signals of the phase transitions - creation of either quark-gluon plasma or fermionic media.

"Investigating relativistic proton-nucleus collisions and the influence of
electromagnetic fields on final hadronic observables" pdf
Abstract:
The recent experimental observations of azimuthally anisotropic flow in
small systems at RHIC and LHC energies has stimulated new interest in
these collisions, traditionally regarded only as control measurements for
heavy-ion collisions and now becoming a new area of study for the
formation and evolution of quark-gluon plasma. In the early stage of
proton-nucleus collisions extremely intense electromagnetic fields are
produced; respect to heavy-ion collisions, in these asymmetric systems the
electric field generated along the impact parameter axis is very high and
comparable to the magnetic field perpendicular to the reaction plane.
Furthermore, particle rapidity densities are strongly asymmetric inside
the overlap area due to the different number of nucleons in the colliding
nuclei. One of the main effects of this combined asymmetry of
electromagnetic fields and particle distributions is a splitting in the
directed flow of positively and negatively charged mesons in the
nucleus-going side. By means of microscopic calculations within the
Parton-Hadron-String Dynamics (PHSD) approach we study the main features
and final hadronic observables of p+Au reaction at top RHIC energy,
investigating in particular the influence of the electromagnetic fields on
flow anisotropies.

"Finite size effects for QCD effective potential"
Abstract:
Finite size effects for QCD effective potential of Abelian
(anti-)self-dual gluon field are studied. The
effective potential is calculated within the framework of zeta function
regularization for spherical four-dimensional domain of radius
R in Euclidean four-dimensional space-time.
It is shown that gluon and quark quasi-zero modes play important role in
the dependence of the effective potential both on the background field
strength and the domain size.
The infinite-size strong-field limit of the effective potential, that is
determined by the asymptotic freedom, requires treatment of the quasi-zero modes
beyond one-loop approximation.
It is shown that under certain conditions global
minimum of the effective potential exists at finite nonzero values of both
background field strength and domain size $R$. Existence of such a
minimum would strongly support the mean field description of QCD vacuum
in terms of statistical ensemble of almost everywhere homogeneous
(anti-)self-dual Abelian gluon fields. As has been shown earlier, such a

"Recent signals of two QCD phase transitions in heavy ion collisions in the
NICA-FAIR energy range of collisions" pdf
Abstract:
During last few years two groups based on many irregularities and possible
signals independently suggested that the 1-st order phase transition of
chiral symmetry restoration in hadronic phase may occur in the central
nuclear collisions at the center-of-mass energies 3.8–4.9 GeV, while a
weaker deconfinement phase transition of 2-nd order may be reached at the
center-of-mass collision energies 9-10 GeV. Later on the third group
studying the fluctuations of light nuclei concluded that the
center-of-mass collision energy 8.8 GeV may be the nearest vicinity of the
critical endpoint of QCD matter phase diagram. Hence in this talk I will
present the most striking signals of two QCD phase transitions which are
deduced from the existing experimental data.
Based on a recent analysis of the data description quality factor of 10
existing event generators of nucleus-nucleus collisions in the range of
center of mass collision energies from 2.1 GeV to 17.3 GeV I will present
the arguments which provide an independent evidence that two QCD phase
transitions occur at the center-of-mass energies 3.8–4.9 GeV and 9-11
GeV. The prospects for detecting these phase transitions at NICA-FAIR
energy range will be discussed as well.

"Space-time picture and bulk observables in relativistic heavy ion
collisions" pdf
Abstract:
We analyze the experimental data in nucleus-nucleus collisions at the
RHIC and LHC, such as the particle number ratios,
hadron&photon spectra and their anisotropy coefficients v_n, also
femtoscopy correlations, within the full evolutionary model .
The latter includes formation of the initial state and initial conditions
in relativistic heavy ion collisions,
a gradual (partial) thermalization of the matter created, subsequent
viscous hydrodynamic relativistic
expansion of quark-gluon plasma, hadronization process, particlization of
the hadron matter and, finally,
scattering of secondary particles and spectra formation. Within such an
integrated HydroKinetic Model (iHKM)
we predict some effects and present the physical interpretation of the
results.

"Topology of strong interactions, between the QCD and the EW transition. " pdf
Abstract:
Strong interactions' topology is a rich theoretical subject with
phenomenological implications: at low temperature topology
holds the key to a complete understanding of the hadron spectrum;
around the QCD transition the interplay of topology,
axial and chiral symmetries affects the nature of
the hot medium and possibly its experimental signatures; for
even higher temperatures, topology determines the density of
the QCD axions, which are
candidate dark matter particles. The talk will focus on results
for the topological charge, its susceptibility and its correlator
in the QCD plasma, and on their implications on the aspects
outlined above.

"Scattering of photons on $A_0$-background in a quark-gluon plasma"
Abstract:
In heavy ion collisions a quark-gluon plasma is supposed to be created whose temperature is in the deconfinement region allowing for a quasiparticle description. Within this description condensate fields may exist. We focus on a spontaneously generated $A_0$-background, which is equivalent to an imaginary chemical potential. The corresponding symmetry breaking invalidates the Furry theorem and allows for non-vanishing tadpole and triangle diagrams. First we consider a tadpole diagram (closed quark line). It can be easily re-summed and results in a redefinition of $A_0$. Next, we consider a triangle diagram with two external photon lines and a quark current in the third vertex. We discuss the resulting scattering of photons.

"Nucleus- and particle-nucleus collisions in the
Giessen Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck model (GiBUU)" pdf
Abstract:
Microscopic transport approach can be applied to a broad range of inclusive nuclear
reactions,
where the quantum states of the outgoing nuclear systems are not resolved.
The latter condition facilitates the use of single-particle distribution functions,
i.e. Wigner functions in 6-dimensional phase space. In the semiclassical approximation,
the time evolution of a Wigner function for the system of fermions is described by
the Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck equation which includes the mean field potential
and collision term with Pauli blocking factors. The most powerful method to solve
this equation
is based on the test particle method and the Monte-Carlo simulation of the collision
term.
Based on this method, large number of numerical models have being developed.
GiBUU is one of the most elaborated microscopic hadronic transport models.
The basic features of the GiBUU model will be presented.
The applications of the model to heavy-ion collisions at the beam energies of 1-40 A
GeV,
to antiproton- and photon-nucleus reactions will be discussed.

Abstract:
The finite-temperature equation of state of chemically-equilibrated
mixture of
alpha particles and nucleons is studied in the mean-field approximation.
We use
Skyrme-like parametrization of the mean-field potentials as functions of
partial
particle densities, which contain both attractive and repulsive terms. The
phase
diagram of the alpha-nucleon mixture is studied with a special attention to
possible phase transitions. We have found two first-order phase
transitions of
liquid-gas type, stable and metastable, which differ significantly by the
fractions of alpha particles. It is shown that alpha particles can also
form a
Bose condensate, but this state is metastable.

"Screening mass of gluons in presence of external Abelian chromomagnetic field" pdf
Abstract:
Screening mass is the main macroscopic characteristic of a gauge field at finite
temperature. It shows how fast the gauge field decreases in space.
There are electric and magnetic screening masses. It is known that in SU(N) gauge
theory the former one is proportional to $gT$, while the second
one is proportional to $g^2T$. So, at high temperature the magnetic mass is much
less than electric one, and is harder to investigate.
In the current research the contribution of various color components of
chromomagnetic field into the magnetic mass is investigated by methods of
lattice gluodynamics at finite temperature. The interaction between a
monopole-antimonopole string and external neutral Abelian chromomagnetic field is
considered. The string is introduced in the standard way described by Srednicki and
Susskind. The neutral Abelian field is introduced in the form of a
flux through the twisted boundary conditions. Monte Carlo simulations are performed
on 4D lattices. The derivative of the free energy with respect to
the inverce coupling is the measured quantity.
In SU(2) case in the absence of the external Abelian flux, the result by DeGrand and
Toussaint is reproduced. We have obtained that the flux
addition weakens the screening of the string field. The contribution of the neutral
Abelian flux to the measured quantity has the enhancing factor form.
This behavior independently confirms the long-range nature of the neutral Abelian
field reported in the literature.
In SU(3) case even without the additional Abelian flux the absence of screening of
the monopole-antimonopole string has been obtained.
This result is unexpected and is discussed within the context of the results of
other investigations.

"Physics at the meso-scale: toroidal moments and non-extensive entropies" pdf
Abstract:
1. Statistical processes of mesoscopic systems (e.g. nano-, nuclear, and astronomic systems) cannot be described, in general, by the Boltzmann-Gibbs entropy (mainly) because they are not extensive. In such cases, other types of entropies—the so called non-extensive entropies—seem to be better suited for the task. There are different techniques for calculating the equilibrium probability distributions of non-extensive systems, techniques which may not lead to the same results. The justification of these techniques come, eventually, a-posteriori, by comparing the calculated distributions with the ones measured or inferred from the experiment.
In this presentation we propose a general approach for calculating the equilibrium probability distributions, applicable to both, extensive and non-extensive systems, and to any expression of the entropy. We exemplify the procedure by applying it to Boltzmann-Gibbs, Renyi, Tsallis, and Landsberg-Vedral entropies and discuss the results (D. V. Anghel and A. S. Parvan, J. Phys. A: Math Theor. 51, 446002, 2018).
2. Although the multipole decomposition of charge and current densities is almost as old as classical electrodynamics, a whole class of terms has remained unknown for a long time. The history of toroidal moments began with Zeldovich's pioneering work (Zh. Exp. Teor. Fiz. 33, 1531, 1957; Sov. Phys. JETP 6, 1184, 1958). He was the first to note that a closed toroidal current (which cannot be reduced to a usual charge or magnetic multipole moment) represents a certain new kind of dipole.
The necessity for studying the toroidal momentum operator is justified by its large area of applicability in physics at any scale (subnuclear, nuclear, atomic, molecular and condensed matter physics). There is a whole class of particles--the Majorana fermions and self-conjugate bosons--which are not allowed to possess any electromagnetic structure other than toroidal multipole moments and this comes from CPT invariance alone. Meanwhile, the most important facts we need to know about an operator are its spectrum and its eigenfunctions. Consequently, in this presentation we shall solve this problem. In order to do this, we introduce the toroidal momentum operator and study some of its properties. We propose a new set of coordinates in which the operator becomes a simple derivative along one of the coordinates. This enables us to find the eigenvalues and the eigenfunctions (D. V. Anghel, J. Phys. A: Math. Gen. 30, 3515, 1997).

"Phase diagram and dualities of dense baryonic matter with chiral
imbalance" pdf, pdf
Abstract:
In this talk the phase structure of the dense quark matter has been investigated in the presence
of baryon μ_B , isospin μ_I , chiral μ_5 and chiral isospin μ_I5 chemical potentials in the framework of
Nambu--Jona-Lasinio model with two quark flavors. It has been shown that in the large-N_c limit
( N_c is the number of colors of quarks) there exist duality correspondences at the phase portrait.
The first one is a duality between the chiral symmetry breaking and the charged pion
condensation phenomena. And there are two other dualities that hold only for chiral symmetry
breaking and charged pion condensation phenomena separately. For example, we have shown
that charged pion condensation does not feel the difference between chiral and isospin
imbalances of the medium. The duality between the chiral symmetry breaking and the charged
pion condensation phases has been established for the first time in low-dimensional toy model
for QCD then it has been checked to take place in a more realistic effective model for QCD. One
of the key conclusions of our studies is the fact that chiral imbalance generates charged pion
condensation in dense baryonic/quark matter. It was also shown that our results in particular
cases are consistent with the simulation of lattice QCD, which is possible for isospin and chiral
chemical potentials. Moreover, in a number of works, catalysis of chiral symmetry breaking by
chiral imbalance was predicted, but there were also works that predict the opposite effect. After
lattice calculations that confirmed the effect of catalysis of chiral symmetry breaking, we can, of
course, say that the problem has been solved, but it would be interesting to find out the reasons
for the discrepancy between the results of effective models. We have made a small step in this
direction and showed that, based on the dualities and the well-studied properties of the phase
structure of QCD with only isotopic imbalance, one can conclude that there should be an effect of
catalysis of chiral symmetry breaking. It was also shown that the fact that the chiral imbalance
generates the phenomenon of charged pion condensation in dense baryonic/quark matter also
remains true for the case of charge neutral matter, which is interesting in the context of the
astrophysics of neutron stars. It is known that chiral imbalance can occur in high energy
experiments on the collision of heavy ions, due to temperature and sphaleron transitions. Our
studies show that different types of chiral imbalance can occur in the cores of neutron stars or in
heavy ion experiments where large baryon densities can be reached, due to another
phenomenon - the so-called chiral separation effect (although there were references to this
possibility, we explored it in more details).

"Explosions of massive blue-supergiant stars triggered by the QCD
phase transition " pdf
Abstract:
Motivated from the observations of yet-unexplained explosive phenomena associated with
massive blue-supergiant stars with zero-age main sequence (ZAMS) masses around 50 M_o, new light has been shed on the old idea [1] that the appearance of QCD degrees of freedom may explain such cosmic events [2]. Obeying chiral physics and taking yet-another important observation of the very existence of massive neutron stars of 2 M_o seriously into account, puts
sever constraints on the behavior of the equation of state at supersaturation density (\rho_{sat}). In particular, sufficient stiffness with increasing density is required. Both aspects indicate rather
high densities for the hadron-quark phase transition in excess of 2\rho_{sat} (at zero temperature).
As a consequence, this excludes low- and intermediate mass stars (~ 10 − 15 M_o ) -- they are canonically considered in supernova studies -- from the presence of ’exotic’ high-density phases. On the other hand, during the evolution of very massive core-collapse supernova
progenitors with ZAMS masses of about 50 M_o , significantly higher core temperatures and densities are reached, where the appearance of the hadron-quark phase transition triggers not only the supernova explosion onset but also a millisecond neutrino burst is released. The latter observable signal provides evidence not only for the presence of a 1st-order phase transition at supersaturation density but contains also details about its properties. The future observation of such a feature from the next galactic event will allow us to either confirm such scenario or, if not observed, rule out a (strong) 1st-order phase transition at high densities encountered in astrophysics. In this talk I will review this scenario in the light of presently known constraints from nuclear physics as well as observations. The latter includes the first binary neutron star merger event associated with GW170817 [3]. Furthermore, I will discuss implications for astrophysics, e.g., the remnants from such supernova explosions are massive neutron stars with
quark-matter core of 2 M_o at birth.

"Equation of state at finite temperature
and finite chemical potential using PNJL model
" pdf
Abstract:
We present an equation of state at finite temperature and finite chemical potential
using the PNJL model. The equation of state goes to the next to leading order O(1/N_c) including mesons contributing to the pressure of the medium below T_c. Together
with a new parametrisation of the effective Polyakov loop involving the presence of
quarks in the determination of the critical temperature, we determine pressure
at zero chemical potential matching the result of the lattice and expand to finite
chemical potential. Also derivatives such as the entropy density, energy density, measured
interaction and speed of sound are very similar to lattice results at zero chemical
potential and can be expanded to finite chemical potential. Regarding the finite
chemical potential, the Taylor expansion around zero chemical potential also matches
the results of the lattice. Main applications could be neutron star calculations and
input for transport hadronisation.

Abstract:
We sudy manifestations of strong and electromagnetic axial anomalies in two-photon decays of $\eta$ and $\eta'$ mesons. Applying dispersive approach to axial anomaly in the singlet current, we obtain an anomaly sum rule containing strong and electromagnetic anomaly contributions. The relevant low energy theorem was generalized to the case of mixed states and used to evaluate the subtraction constant of the strong anomaly-related form factor. We made a numerical estimation of the contributions of gluon and electromagnetic anomalies to the two-photon decays of $\eta$ and $\eta'$ mesons and found significant suppression of the gluon anomaly contribution.
We duiscuss the rate of direct production of $\eta$ and $\eta'$ mesons in heavy ion collisions.

"Anomalous axial current from covariant Wigner function and thermodynamic
equilibrium density operator" pdf
Abstract:
We considered a rotating and accelerated moving medium consisting of
weakly interacting fermions in a state of local thermodynamic equilibrium
based on two different approaches. In the first of the approaches, the
properties of such a medium are described using the covariant Wigner
function. We derived a formula for the axial current outside the
perturbation theory, leading to a Chiral vortical effect in the limiting
case. It is shown that in the limit of massless fermions the terms of
higher orders in the thermal vorticity tensor are mutually compensated.
In order to verify the results obtained, a second approach to the
calculation of the axial current was used, based on the quantum density
functional for a medium with rotation and acceleration. Carrying out the
calculation of thermodynamic averages in the framework of quantum field
theory at finite temperatures in the third order of perturbation theory,
we obtained the mean values of the axial and vector currents. A
generalization is made to the case of a nonzero axial chemical potential.
The results obtained with the help of the Wigner function and the density
operator are compared with each other and with the consequences of other
approaches, such as effective field theory with axial anomalies. Based on
the obtained formulas for the axial current, the correspondence of various
approaches to the calculation of polarization of baryons is justified.

"Study of properties of two color QCD at nonzero baryon density by means of
lattice simulation" pdf
Abstract:
Vacuum and finite temperature properties of QCD are well studied due to the
method of
lattice simulations. Unfortunately, in general case lattice simulations cannot
be applied
for QCD at nonzero baryon density due to the sign problem.
In this report we present the results of lattice simulation of the theory
which is free from the sign problem - two color(SU(2)) QCD at nonzero baryon
density.
Both SU(3) and SU(2) theories have many common phenomena and properties and
study
of SU(2) QCD can provide some information about the properties of real QCD.
Calculations were carried out at zero temperature and with two flavors of
dynamic quarks.
In our study we found several phases of dense two color QCD:
the hadronic phase at small chemical potential (\mu_q); the phase
of Bose-Einstein condensation of scalar diquarks at intermediate
values of \mu_q; the phase with condensation of quark Cooper pairs
at large \mu_q.
At ultrahigh densities (\mu_q~1000 MeV) we found confinement/deconfinement
transition which manifests itself
in rising of the Polyakov loop and vanishing of the string tension.
Properties of the deconfinement phase at large densities are similar to weakly
interacting
gas of quarks and gluons, contrary to Quark-Gluon Plasma at large temperatures
and zero baryon density.

"Novel lattice simulations for transport
coefficients in gauge theories" pdf
Abstract:
Transport coefficients, such as the temperature-dependent shear and bulk
viscosities, are essential QCD ingredients in the hydrodynamical
description of relativistic heavy-ion collisions. The extraction of the
transport coefficients from lattice simulations is extremely challenging since
a reliable spectral reconstruction from Euclidean data at low frequencies is
required. In standard simulations at finite temperature this reconstruction
is based on the discrete Matsubara frequencies, and is
exponentially hard: the thermal part of the low frequency information is
hidden in the thermal decay of the Euclidean data at large frequencies.
In order to overcome this limitation, we apply the novel approach for
thermal fields on the lattice [1] to gauge fields [2]. The formalism
operates in a non-compact imaginary time domain that leads to continuous
imaginary time frequencies. The quantum evolution is formulated as an
initial value problem and the thermal initial conditions are supplied by a
standard lattice simulation.
We present results for the energy momentum tensor correlation function in
SU(2) Yang-Mills theory in the confined and deconfined phase. Convergence
properties to the standard results at finite Matsubara frequencies are
discussed. Moreover we show first results for the corresponding spectral
functions obtained via the Bayesian BR method [3]. We assess the viability
of the method applied to gauge fields and its ability to provide a robust
estimate for transport coefficients.

Abstract:
Search for the signals of a new state of matter, quark-gluon plasma (QGP),
is one of the main goals of experiments on heavy-ion collisions at high
energies at modern colliders RHIC and LHC and at coming soon facilities

angle distribution of leptons with respect to the three-momentum of pair
is predicted as a feasibility signature of synchrotron-like mechanism
resulting from the quarks interacting with a collective confining color
field in the heavy ion collisions. The photon and lepton pair production
rate and the spectrum of pair invariant mass are presented for this new
dilepton source that is apparently not taken into consideration in the
available phenomenological estimates.

"Topologically protected states in 2D and 3D: spin-momentum and
valley-momentum locking mechanisms." pdf
Abstract:
Topological insulator is a special state of matter which has a gap in
the bulk, but hosts gapless surface modes protected by non-tirivial
topological invariant.
Spin-momentum and valley-momentum locking mechanisms (the former one
caused by strong spin-orbital coupling) are the underlying physical
reasons for the appearance of the non-trivial topology of the surface
modes. Topological protection suppresses the backscattering for
electronic states on the surface thus leading to promising potential
applications in "dissipationless" electronic and spintronic devices.
We will review the basic concepts in the field and the most prominent
lattice models hosting the topologically protected modes. Namely, we
will describe the Kane-Mele model on hexagonal lattice in two dimensions
and some lattice models on square and diamond lattices in three
dimensions. We will also describe the possibilities for artificial
engineering of topological insulators with both spin- and
valley-momentum locking mechanisms using the deposition of adatoms in
top of graphene sheet.
The stability of topological insulator against the effects of disorder
and electron-electron interaction will be discussed.
Some connections to Lattice QCD will be also reviewed. For instance, the
prominent Wilson fermions in some region of parameters mimic the
presence of spin-orbital coupling and can be used as a model for 3D
topological insulator.

applications in off-shell kinetics of the quark-gluon plasma
and in calculations of transport coefficients. The new BR method
is applied to Euclidean propagator data, obtained in Landau
gauge on lattices with $N_f=2+1+1$ dynamical flavors by the
``twisted mass at finite temperature'' (tmfT) collaboration.
The deployed reconstruction method is designed for
spectral functions that can exhibit positivity violation
(opposed to that of hadronic bound states). The transversal
and longitudinal gluon spectral
functions show a robust structure composed of quasiparticle
peak and a negative trough. Characteristic differences between
the hadronic and the plasma phase and between the two channels
become visible. We obtain the temperature dependence of the
transversal and longitudinal gluon masses.

"Уравнение состояния нейтронной материи в модели Составного кваркового мешка" pdf pptx
Abstract:
Согласно Дайсону (1957 г.) полюса Кастильехо, Далица и Дайсона (КДД)
обусловлены существованием связанных состояний и резонансов.
Обсуждается новый тип КДД полюсов, связанный с существованием
примитивов Джаффе и Лоу, т. е. полюсов P матрицы или, эквивалентно,
соответствующих им нулей D функции на унитарном разрезе. Уравнение
рассеяния Лоу обобщается на амплитуды, допускающие КДД полюса нового
типа. Связь между КДД полюсами и примитивами иллюстрируется на
примере описания в модели Составного кваркового мешка (СКМ) амплитуд
NN рассеяния в S- и Р- волнах с учетом аналитичности и унитарности
[1]. Фазовый анализ, таким образом, указывает на существование 6-и
кварковых примитивов в каналах 3S1, 1S0 и 3P0. Сигнатура примитива –
нулевая фаза рассеяния с отрицательным наклоном. В зависимости от
характера взаимодействия с континуумом компаунд состояния проявляют
себя в виде связанных состояний, резонансов, или примитивов. Если
взаимодействие испытывает возмущение, компаунд состояние может
изменить свои свойства. В моделях s-канального обмена
электромагнитные взаимодействия, вообще говоря, сдвигают примитивы с
унитарного разреза, превращая их в узкие резонансы. Дана оценка этого
эффекта в рр канале 1S0. Электромагнитные взаимодействия
трансформируют примитив с массой 2000 МэВ в дибарионный резонанс
примерно той же массы и шириной 260 кэВ [2]. В модели СКМ, где NN
взаимодействие описывается в терминах s-канального обмена 6-и
кварковыми примитивами, построено уравнение состояния нейтронной
материи при плотности ниже 0.5/фм^3. Зависимость энергетической щели
сверхпроводящей фазы нейтронной материи от плотности количественно
согласуется с предсказаниями моделей однобозонного обмена [3].

"Multiparton Interactions in Quantum Chromodynamics"(in Russian) pdf
"Многопартонные взаимодействия в квантовой хромодиамике"
Abstract:
Будет дан обзор результатов, полученных в недавние годы в решении фундаментальной научной проблемы о проверке теории сильных взаимодействий (КХД) в режиме свервысоких плотностей энергии и температур. В этом режиме значительно возрастает роль жестких многопартонных взаимодействий, которые являются важным и значимым фоном при поиске сигналов новой физики на Большом адронном коллайдере (БАК).
Для моделирования двукратных партонных рассеяний необходимо знать двухпартонные функции распределения как решеня соотвествующих уравнений
(обобщение уравнений ДГЛАП). Из этих уравнений следует, что факторизационная гипотеза, часто применяемая для двухпартонных функций распределения при анализе экспериментальных данных по двойным партонным рассеяниям, явно противоречит уравнениям эволюции КХД и может быть использована только как первое приближение в ограниченном интервале изменения масштаба жесткости процесса. С увеличением этого масштаба вклад возникающих динамических КХД корреляций в двухпартонные функции распределения возрастает по сравнению с факторизационной компонентой и может быть экспериментально обнаружен.
Проведенные Коллаборацией D0 в 2010 году на Тэватроне измерения эффективного сечения двойных партонных рассеяний интерпретируются именно как первое указание на эволюцию двойных партонных распределений, которая имеет такой же статус достоверности в КХД, как и уже подтвержденная
экспериментально эволюция одиночных распределений.

"Study of temperature dependence of QCD viscosity" pdf
Abstract:
We have studied the QCD viscosity in the vicinity of confinement/deconfinement transition in lattice simulations. In particular, we have computed with high accuracy the correlators of energy-momentum tensor in gluodynamics in the temperature range T/Tc=(0.9, 1.5). Using these correlation functions, we evaluated the spectral densty. Using it, we finally calculated the viscosity. The results of the calculation are in agreement with the values of viscosity, obtained in the RHIC experiment.

Abstract:
The process $e+e- -> gamma* -> pi^0 gamma$ was considered using time-like pion transition form
factor, obtained in the approach of the Anomaly Sum Rules(ASR). The
total cross section and angular distribution of the process were
calculated. As the result of the comparison with the data it was
shown that ASR approach provides their good description in the
regions far from the pole. Also there was proposed a method allowing
to give reasonable description of data in the region of pole within
the ASR approach. The strong restrictions for the parameters of the
modified ASR approach were obtained.

"How can lattice QCD describe non-zero baryonic density? Continuation." pdf
Abstract:
The region of large baryonic density is terra incognita in the QCD
phase diagram, at least for ab initio theoretical investigations
usually offered by lattice QCD.
Quenched lattice studies are obviously misleading, and this is known for
20 years when lattice studies with dynamical fermions were turning to the
phase structure of QCD. Dynamical studies are possible, however only with
decreasing reliability, over a region of limited chemical potential. They
give knowledge with controllable precision up to $\mu/T \approx 1$, in
other words, they are practically impossible for cold dense matter and
matter becoming accessible in heavy ion collisions in the energy range
with $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ between 4 and 10 GeV (so far explored only in the BES
extension program at RHIC down to 7.7 GeV). The region of medium
temperatures and $\mu/T >> 1$ and $\mu_B=3 \mu_q \sim 0.8$ GeV (according
to Cleymans et al. 2006) will become the object of much more dedicated
interest in heavy ion collisions planned at facilities like NICA (MPD) and
FAIR (CBM). This can be considered as their brand mark.
In relatively simple terms, I will give an explanation for the unpleasant
situation in lattice theory, which has its roots in the complex phase
problem (a.k.a. "sign problem"), which has prevented a broad activity and
rapid growth of knowledge (as we were to used to get it for zero baryonic
density with $\mu=0$) over the last 10 years.
An intensive search for possibilities to overcome this "technical barrier"
has attracted human and machine resources to these methodical questions
(detracted away from "number crunching"). This initiative is bearing fruit
now and has revealed a number of promising potential escapes. They are all
related either to "dualization" (choosing a conjugated configuration space
for simulations) or "complexification" (choosing a slightly extended
configuration space).
The conference "Lattice 2016" was dominated in a remarkable manner by this
development.

"Constraints on the nuclear equation of state. Hyperon puzzle of neutron stars" pdf
Abstract:
Measurements of neutron stars with masses larger or about 2 solar masses
imply that the nuclear equation of state (EoS) should be sufficiently
stiff. The stiffness of the Eos is however restricted from above by the
constraint from the analysis of particle flow in heavy-ion collisions.
The dilemma sharpens if hyperons are included. Since Lambdas and Xi
baryons experience attractive potentials in nuclear matter at the
saturation density, a naive extrapolation of these potentials would lead
unavoidably to the appearance of hyperons in neutron star interiors.
That would soften the EoS and lead to the contradiction with the
observable star masses (so-called hyperon puzzle). We show that this
problem can be resolved if one takes into account a reduction of the
mass of the phi meson which mediates a repulsion among hyperons. We
propose a relativistic mean-field model with hadron masses and coupling
constants depending on the scalar field. All hadron masses undergo a
universal scaling, whereas the coupling constants are scaled
differently. The appearance of hyperons in dense neutron star interiors
is accounted for. The equation of state satisfies well the constraints
known from analyses of the astrophysical data and particle production in
heavy-ion collisions.

"Evolution of holographic Wilson loops in anisotropic quark-gluon
plasma" pdf
Abstract:
In this talk we discuss the evolution of Wilson loops
in anisotropic quark-gluon plasma using the holographic approach.
We evaluate the Wilson loops in both static and time-dependent cases.
The anisotropic time-dependent plasma is dual to Lifshitz-Vaidya
background, while we use a black brane in the Lifshitz-like spacetime
for a finite temperature plasma in equillibrium.
To probe the system we calculate Wilson loops oriented in different
spatial directions. We find that anisotropic effects in the Lifshitz-like
backgrounds are more visible for the Wilson loops lying in the
transversal direction unlike the Wilson loops partially oriented in
the longitudinal one.

уделено знаменитой сверхновой SN1987A, нейтринный сигнал от которой,
полученный на ряде подземных детекторов, до сих пор является
единственным случаем регистрации нейтрино от сверхновых. Кроме того,
будет рассказано о возможной "экзотике" при взрыве сверхновой:

"Study of QCD Phase Diagram by Heavy Ion Experiments and Lattice QCD
Experiments" pdf
Abstract:
To explore the QCD phase structure, we must study QCD at finite
temperature and density. A first-principle calculation, lattice QCD, is
expected to provide essential information, but it suffers from the
so-called the sign problem. The fundamental tool of lattice QCD is Monte
Carlo simulation of a path integral, but the measure is
complex at finite chemical potential.
In order to avoid this problem, I propose a canonical approach, in which
the grand partition function, $Z(\mu,T)$, is expanded as a
polynomial of the fugacity, $\xi=\exp(\mu/T)$, where $\mu$ and $T$ are
chemical potential and temperature, respectively:
$Z(\mu,T) = \sum_n Z_n(T) \xi^n$, and $Z_n(T)$ are the canonical
partition functions.
Canonical partition functions are related to the net baryon
distribution, which are measured in high energy nuclear reactions,
although the experimentally measured quantity is the net-proton
distribution. Nevertheless, the net-proton multiplicity may be a
proxy of the net baryon distribution.
Other observables, such as the net-charge fluctuation and the
net-strangeness fluctuation, can be measured both in nuclear and
lattice experiments.

Abstract:
I will explain the duality correspondence between
fermion-antifermion and di-fermion interaction channels
as established in two (2+1)-dimensional Gross-Neveu
type models with a fermion number chemical potential
μ and a chiral chemical potential μ_5.
The role and influence of this property on the phase
structure of the models are investigated. In particular,
it is shown that the chemical potential μ_5 promotes
the appearance of dynamical chiral symmetry breaking,
whereas the chemical potential μ contributes to the
emergence of superconductivity.

In the first part of the seminar we present first results of simulating the

is based on a three-fluid hydrodynamics description of the early stage of

We address the directed flow of protons and pions as well as the proton
rapidity distribution for two model equations of state (EoS), with and
without a first order phase transition.
In the second part we present a recently developed hybrid EoS that fulfills
the constraints from compact star phenomenology and describe its advantages
over the

Deconfinement in HIC"
pdf
Abstract:
The impact of the experimental acceptance, i.e. transverse-momentum (p_T)
cut-off and limited rapidity region, on the earlier predicted irregularity
in the excitation function of the baryon stopping is studied. This
irregularity is a consequence of the onset of deconfinement occurring in
the compression stage of a nuclear collision and manifests itself as a
wiggle in the excitation function of the reduced curvature (C_y) of the
net-proton rapidity distribution at midrapidity. It is demonstrated that
the wiggle is a very robust signal of a first-order phase transition that
survives even under conditions of a very limited acceptance. At the same
time the C_y for pure hadronic and crossover transition scenarios become
hardly distinguishable, if the acceptance cuts off too much of the
low-p_T proton
spectrum and/or puts too narrow rapidity window around midrapidity. It is
found that the shape of the net-proton rapidity distribution near
midrapidity depends on the p_T cut-off. This implies that the measurements
should be taken at the same acceptance for all collision energies in order
to reliably conclude on the presence or absence of the irregularity. An
outlook is given to actual perspectives of this study in relation to the
NICA MPD experiment.

also possible to use the result for further discussion of non-dissipative
nature of chiral effects.
- 03.06.2015 Yu. B. Ivanov (NRC "Kurchatov Institute", Moscow) "Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collisions within Alternative Scenarios: Directed
and Elliptic Flow" pdf
Abstract:
Analysis of the directed flow ($v_1$)
and transverse-momentum integrated elliptic flow ($v_2$)
in heavy-ion collisions
is performed in the range of collision energies \sqrt{s_{NN}} = 2.7--39 GeV.
Simulations have been done within a three-fluid model
employing a purely hadronic equation of state (EoS) and two versions of the EoS
with deconfinement transitions:
a first-order phase transition and a smooth crossover transition.
High sensitivity of the proton directed flow to the EoS is found.
The directed flow indicates that the crossover deconfinement transition
takes place in semicentral Au+Au collisions in a wide range of
collision energies 4 < \sqrt{s_{NN}} < 20 GeV.
The crossover EoS is unambiguously preferable for the description of
the most part of experimental data in this energy range.
The obtained results
suggest that the deconfinement EoS's in the quark-gluon sector should be
stiffer at high baryon densities than those used in the calculation.
The latter finding is in agreement with that discussed in astrophysics.
%
Simulations demonstrate low sensitivity of $v_2$ of charged particles
to the EoS. All considered scenarios equally well reproduce
recent STAR data on $v_2$(charged)
for mid-central Au+Au collisions and properly describe its
change of sign at the incident energy decrease below
\sqrt{s_{NN}} = 3.5 GeV.
The predicted integrated elliptic flow of various species exhibits
a stronger dependence on the EoS.
A noticeable sensitivity to the EoS is found for anti-baryons
and, to a lesser extent, for
$K^-$ mesons.
In particular, the $v_2$ excitation functions of anti-baryons
exhibit a non-monotonicity within the deconfinement
scenarios that was predicted by Kolb, Sollfrank and Heinz.
However, low multiplicities of anti-baryons
at \sqrt{s_{NN}}< 10 GeV
result in large fluctuations of their $v_2$ which may wash out this non-monotonicity.

Abstract:
In the mean field approximation, the grand potential of SU(3)
Polyakov linear-$\sigma$ model (PLSM) is analysed for the light and
strange chiral phase-transition, $\sigma_l$ and $\sigma_s$, respectively
and for the deconfinement order parameters $\phi$ and $\phi^*$.
Furthermore, the subtracted condensate $\Delta_{l,s}$ and chiral
order-parameters $M_b\,$ are compared with the lattice QCD calculations.
By using the dynamical quasi-particle model (DQPM), which can be
considered as a system of noninteracting massive quasi-particles, we
have evaluated the decay width and the relaxation time of quarks and
gluons. In framework of LSM and when including Polyakov corrections, the
interaction measure $\Delta/T^4$, the specific heat $c_v$ and speed of
sound squared $c_s^2$ have been determined. Furthermore, the thermal
evolution of the normalized quark number $n_q/T^3$ and the
susceptibilities $\chi_q/T^2$ at different baryon chemical potentials
are confronted with the corresponding Stefan-Boltzmann (SB) limits. The
electric $\sigma_e$ and heat $\kappa$ conductivity and their ratio are
compared with the available lattice QCD calculations. The bulk and shear
viscosities normalized to the thermal entropy $\xi/s$ and $\eta/s$,
respectively, and the ratio of bulk and shear viscosities are evaluated
from PLSM compared with the lattice QCD data. Finally, the ratios $(\xi
/s)/(\sigma_e T)$ and $(\eta /s)/(\sigma_e T)$ are calculated.

Abstract:
We present current status of a quantum kinetic formulation of the chemical
equilibration process in dense hadronic matter at the hadronization
transition. Delocalization of hadron wave functions at the Mott-Anderson
transition (where their binding energies vanish) lead to a divergence of
scattering lengths and critical enhancement of rearrangement collisions
between hadrons. We exemplify this for different meson-meson scattering
processes from light (pi-pi scattering) to heavy flavors (charmonium
dissociation). On this basis we suggest that chemical freeze-out has to be
correlated with (partial) chiral symmetry restoration.

Abstract:
A new mechanism is explained for the interpretation of the non-monotonic,
enhanced yield of hyperons and strange mesons (also known as "horn" effect),
that is observed in central heavy ion collisions in the experiment NA49 at
SPS and confirmed by STAR at RHIC.
We argue that the data indicate the transition of the nucleons in the
overlap region of the colliding nuclei with high nuclear density into a
certain hyperon phase. In semicentral heavy ion collisions a strong magnetic
field and very large orbital angular momentum can be created. The polarization
of hyperons becoming possible due to these phenomena is discussed.

Abstract:
A review of the latest theoretical results on electromagnetic probes
(direct photons and dileptons) of the QGP in heavy-ion collisions at
ultra-relativistic energies will be presented. While the dilepton
spectra at low invariant mass show in-medium effects like a
collisional broadening of the vector mesons in their spectral
functions, the dilepton yield at high invariant masses (above 1.1 GeV)
is dominated by the QGP contributions for central heavy-ion collisions
at ultra-relativistic energies.
Also we discuss the present status of the photon $v_2$ "puzzle" - one
of the challenging topics related to the large elliptic flow $v_2$ of
the direct photons experimentally observed at RHIC and LHC energies.
It turns out that the photonic $v_2$ is as large as the hadronic
$v_2$, whereas many models predict a very small $v_2$ of photons from
the QGP due to their early emission before the system has developed a
sizeable momentum anisotropy. We investigate the role of hadronic and
partonic sources for the photon spectra as well as the possibility to
subtract the QGP signal from the experimental observables by studying
the centrality dependence of the direct photon yield.

"Non-equilibrium Dynamics of the Chiral/Deconfinement Phase Transition." pdf
Abstract:
Observable signals of possible QCD phase transitions are strongly
influenced by the rapid non-equilibrium dynamics during a heavy-ion
collision. In order to realistically estimate these effects we have
developed a non-equilibrium chiral fluid dynamics model, where the
quark-antiquark fluid is dynamically coupled to the order-parameter
fields. The model takes into account dissipation and fluctuation effects
stemming from the interaction between the fluid and the fields. The actual
calculations are done within the linear sigma model with constituent
quarks, coupled to the Polyakov loop. The dynamical trajectories of the
fluid elements on the T-\mu plane are studied for different types of the
phase transition. The effects of supercooling and reheating are clearly
observed in the case of a first-order phase transition. In this case we
see the formation of domains in net-baryon density due to spinodal
decomposition. They should lead to an enhancement of higher harmonics in
azimuthal distributions of net-baryons. It is also demonstrated that
long-wavelength fluctuations near the critical point show a strong
enhancement only in a quasi-static system, but they are suppressed in the
case of a fast expansion.

N_f=2 and N_f=2+1+1 flavors dealt within the twisted mass approach."
Abstract:
A relative majority of European lattice simulations of full QCD have got concentrated
on the twisted mass approach to Wilson fermions (Collaboration ETMC) as opposed
to other (staggered, clover improved Wilson, domain wall etc.) fermion
formulations.
The "twisted mass at finite temperature" (tmfT) collaboration is a
small group of authors following this approach for simulations at finite temperature,
in particular using the results of ETMC (at a set of
unphysical pion masses) at zero
temperature as input for calibration. Finite temperature simulations have
been performed in order to explore the nature of the phase transition with
two degenerate light flavors (u and d) in the chiral limit and to find
the temperature of the crossover for the physical pion mass.
As a continuation of previous work of the BLTP-Humboldt University
collaboration on Landau gauge gluon and ghost propagators at T=0,
finite-temperature configurations have been used to study the T
dependence of the electric and magnetic gluon propagators in the vicinity
of the crossover. These results are connected with our earlier corresponding
quenched results near to the phase transition of SU(3) pure gauge theory
via the Dyson-Schwinger approach (Ch. Fischer).
The twisted-mass approach with an additional non-degenerate quark doublet,
tuned to realistic s and d quark masses, will be described. The status
of results concerning the temperature of the crossover for would-be pion
masses between 220 and 400 MeV and the contributions of light and heavy
quarks to the equation of state will be reported.

ion collisions: New opportunities for BM@N and MPD@NICA." pdf
Abstract:
Investigation of hypernuclei is a rapidly progressing field of nuclear
physics, since they give opportunities both to improve methods of
traditional nuclear studies and to open new horizons for studying particle
physics and nuclear astrophysics. Within dynamical and statistical
theories we study the main regularities in the production of hypernuclei
emerging from the projectile and target residues in relativistic ion
collisions. This process will allow to study the mechanisms of peripheral
collisions and the properties of hyper-matter of low temperatures,
including hyperon-hyperon interactions at low energies. We demonstrate
that the yields of hypernuclei increase considerably at beam energies
above the energy threshold for Lambda hyperons (~1.6 AGeV), followed by a
saturation for yields of hypernuclei with increasing the beam energy up
to few TeV [1]. These hypernuclei have a broad distribution in masses and
isospin. They can even reach beyond the neutron and proton drip-lines
since they are stable with respect to nucleon emission [2]. Weak decay of
such hypernuclei may lead to formation of normal nuclei beyond the
drip-lines also, thus providing a unique chance for reaching island of
stability on the nuclear chart. The production of specific hypernuclei
depend strongly on the isotopic composition of the projectile, therefore,
it will be possible to obtain exotic hypernuclei that may be difficult to
reach in traditional hypernuclear experiments [1]. We also show new
calculations including DCM, UrQMD, and HSD models with formation of light
hypernuclei of all rapidities and large hyper-residues, which can be
obtained in the fixed-target experiments. The perspectives of hypernuclear
studies involving these novel processes at the present accelerators are
discussed.

- 28.05.2014 Masayasu Hasegawa (BLTP JINR) "Chiral symmetry and overlap fermions, instantons and monopoles in
lattice QCD".
Abstract:
At the end of the 90-s it became clear that overlap fermions realize
chiral symmetry to a maximal degree permitted by lattice discretization.
This has opened the way to study the relation between chiral and
topological aspects of QCD vacuum structure.
It is known -- to a large extent due to the work of the Kanazawa-DESY-ITEP
collaboration on one hand and of the Pisa group on the other -- that
monopoles play a crucial role in the confinement mechanism through
monopole condensation and dual superconductivity.
Whereas instantons offer a beautiful mechanism for spontaneous breaking of
chiral symmetry, a direct relation to confinement is not obvious.
The purpose of the present study reported in this seminar is to show a
relation between instantons and monopoles by using the overlap fermions as
an analytical tool. One non-trivial problem is to relate them, despite the
different dimensionality of instantons (4-dimensional event-like) and
monopoles (3-dimensional particle-like). The exact relation remained
unclear in spite of many studies. Therefore we try to clarify the relation
with the help of overlap fermions on the lattice.
In this seminar, first I will introduce the overlap fermions briefly.
Second, I will explain how to create an additional monopole to a given
lattice configuration. Third, I will give some results showing that this
construction is consistent. Finally, I will present some new results
clarifying the relation between instantons and monopoles.

Abstract:
The femtoscopic correlations allow one to measure the space-time characteristics of
particle production thanks to the effects of quantum statistics for identical particles and
final state interactions for both identical and non-identical ones. The main features of the
femtoscopy measurements in heavy-ion collisions at SPS and RHIC are i) the value of the
radii almost independent on the beam energy, ii) the increase of the correlation radii with
increasing multiplicity of events and iii) the decrease of the radii with increasing of pair
transverse momentum. These are understood as a manifestation of the strong collective
flow. Such effects were also observed at the LHC with the interferometry volume increased
twice compared with RHIC. The data from Pb-Pb collisions and its comparison with the
dynamical models will be presented. The high multiplicity pp collisions
reach particle densities comparable to the ones measured in peripheral Cu-Cu and Au-
Au collisions at RHIC so it is natural to investigate collective behaviour in pp. The
similarities and differences between pp and heavy-ion data are discussed.
- 7.05.2014 Hans-Peter Pavel (TU Darmstadt & BLTP JINR Dubna) "Low energy QCD in terms of gauge invariant dynamical variables" pdf
Abstract:
Using a generalized polar decomposition of the gauge fields into
gauge-rotation and gauge-invariant parts,
which Abelianises the Non-Abelian Gauss-law constraints to be implemented,
a Hamiltonian formulation of low energy QCD in terms of gauge invariant
dynamical variables can be achieved.
The exact implementation of the Gauss laws reduces the colored spin-1
gluons and spin-1/2 quarks to unconstrained colorless
spin-0, spin-1, spin-2 and spin-3 glueball fields and colorless
Rarita-Schwinger fields respectively.
The obtained physical Hamiltonian naturally admits a systematic
strong-coupling expansion in powers of $\lambda=g^{-2/3}$,
equivalent to an expansion in the number of spatial derivatives.
The leading-order term corresponds to non-interacting hybrid-glueballs, whose
low-lying spectrum can be calculated with high accuracy by solving the
Schroedinger-equation
of the Dirac-Yang-Mills quantum mechanics of spatially constant fields (at
the moment only for the 2-color case).
The discrete glueball excitation spectrum shows a universal string-like
behaviour with practically all excitation energy
going in to the increase of the strengths of merely two fields, the
"constant Abelian fields" corresponding to the zero-energy
valleys of the chromomagnetic potential. Inclusion of the fermionic
degrees of freedom significantly lowers
the spectrum and allows for the study of the sigma meson.
Higher-order terms in $\lambda$ lead to interactions between the
hybrid-glueballs and can be taken into account systematically
using perturbation theory in $\lambda$, allowing for the study of
IR-renormalisation and Lorentz invariance.
The existence of the generalized polar decomposition used, the position of
the zeros of the corresponding Jacobian
(Gribov horizons), and the ranges of the physical variables can be
investigated by solving a system of algebraic equations.
Its exact solution for the case of one spatial dimension and first
numerical solutions for two and three spatial
dimensions indicate that there is a finite number of solutions separated
by Gribov horizons.

Abstract:
Following the experimental program at BNL/RHIC, we perform a similar
"energy scan" using 3+1D viscous hydrodynamics coupled to the UrQMD hadron
cascade, and study the collision energy dependence of pion and kaon
rapidity distributions and m_t-spectra, as well as charged hadron elliptic
flow. To this aim the equation of state for finite baryon density from a
Chiral model coupled to the Polyakov loop is employed for hydrodynamic
stage. 3D initial conditions from UrQMD are used to study gradual deviation
from boost-invariant scaling flow. We find that the inclusion of shear
viscosity in the hydrodynamic stage of evolution consistently improves the
description of the data for Pb-Pb collisions at CERN SPS, as well as of the
elliptic flow measurements for Au-Au collisions in the Beam Energy Scan

Abstract:
We consider the perspectives of using orthogonal wavelet expansion with Daubechies wavelets for lattice theories. The discrete wavelet transform have been already applied to simulate the Landau-Ginzburg/Ф4 theory with the assumption that the wavelet coefficients of the order parameter Ф(x) are delta-correlated Gaussian processes in the scale-position space. This reduces the autocorrelation time of simulation, and is not the only merit of wavelet transform. By construction the wavelet transform represents the snapshot of a field at a given scale, and therefore can be used as a tool to study the correlations between fluctuations of different scales. For the same reason the relation of wavelet transform to the renormalization group are considered. We also discuss the prospective of wavelet transform to improve the Metropolis algorithm and the simulated annealing procedure.

Abstract:
An axial magnetic field, which couples to left- and
right-handed fermions with opposite signs, may generate in equilibrium
a dissipationless steady energy flow of fermions in the direction of the
field even, in the presence of interactions. We report on a numerical
observation of this Axial Magnetic Effect in quenched SU(2) lattice gauge
theory. We find that in the deconfinement (plasma) phase the energy flow
grows linearly with the increase of the strength of the axial magnetic
field. In the confinement (hadron) phase the Axial Magnetic Effect is
absent. The temperature dependence of the Axial Magnetic effect is
studied.

Abstract:
I'll present a review of lattice simulations of graphene electronic
properties. Graphene is an example of a system with strongly correlated
electrons which can be described in the low-energy limit by an effective
field theory with very large coupling constant. Therefore it can be a
subject of spontaneous symmetry breaking with the appearance of various
fermionic condensates. The simulations of graphene electronic properties
can be divided into two branches:
1) calculations within the framework of graphene effective field theory
(2 flavours of (2+1)-dimensional massless Dirac fermions strongly
interacting with ordinary (3+1)-dimensional electromagnetic field);
2) simulations of the original tight-binding model on a hexagonal lattice.
Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages. The main difference
between them are the appearance of different order parameters that
correspond to antiferromagnetic and excitonic phase transitions,
correspondingly.
I'll give the review of both approaches emphasizing the relations between
them: how the results of calculations in the low-energy effective field
theory can be compared with the results of simulations on the hexagonal
lattice which take into account the "ultraviolet" behaviour of quantum
fields.

Abstract:
Based on lattice QCD-adjusted SU_f(2) nonlocal Polyakov-Nambu-Jona-Lasinio
(PNJL) models, we investigate how the location of the critical endpoint in
the
QCD phase diagram depends on the strength of the vector meson coupling,
as well as on the Polyakov-loop (PL) potential and the form factors of the
covariant interaction model model.
These are constrained by lattice QCD data for the quark propagator.
The strength of the vector coupling is adjusted such as to reproduce the
slope
of the pseudocritical temperature for the chiral phase transition at low
chemical
potential extracted recently from lattice QCD simulations.
Our study supports the existence of a critical endpoint in the QCD phase
diagram
albeit the constraint for the vector coupling shifts its location to lower
temperatures
and higher baryochemical potentials than in the case without it.

"Topological structure of gluodynamics
close to the transition temperature studied in the IR
by low modes of the overlap Dirac operator" pdf
Abstract:
Topological objects of SU(3) gluodynamics near the transition
temperature are studied at the infrared scale with the help of zero and
near-zero modes of the overlap Dirac operator.
We construct the UV filtered topological charge density in three versions
by choosing different temporal boundary conditions applied to this operator.
In the reference case of analytical (anti)caloron solutions the zero modes
would be located, correspondingly, on three types of constituent dyons
(antidyons), which can be considered as the elusive ``instanton quarks''.
Clustering of the three topological charge densities marks the positions of
dyons and antidyons which are approximately recognizable in equilibrium
(Monte Carlo) gluonic field configurations. We classify them either as
constituents of nondissociated (anti)calorons or as constituents of
(anti)dyon pairs or as isolated (anti)dyons. The pattern of the Polyakov
loop, as it is found inside these clusters after a small number of overimproved
cooling steps, resembles predictions made for analytical caloron solutions.

Abstract:
The intriguing problem of modern high energy and heavy-ion physics is to
understand the nature of deconfinement and the phase transition
from hadronic to partonic matter - the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP)- which
occurs during heavy-ion collisions at relativistic energies.
The latest experimental findings at high energy heavy-ion collisions
indicate that the QGP shows the properties of a strongly interacting
liquid (sQGP) rather than - as expected initially - a weakly interacting
gas of partons.
From the other hand, at low energy one observes a significant
modification of hadronic properties in dense and hot nuclear environment.
An overview of experimental observables as well as theoretical models
for the dynamical description of strongly interaction parton-hadron
matter in- and out-off equilibrium will be presented, the perspectives
for the

- 03.07.2013 Sergei Nedelko (BLTP JINR), Vladimir Voronin (BLTP JINR & Dubna Uni.) "A Domain Wall Network as QCD Vacuum: Confinement, Chiral Symmetry, Hadronization" pdf
Abstract:
An overall task pursued by most of the approaches to QCD vacuum structure
is an identification of the properties of nonperturbative gauge field
configurations able to provide a coherent resolution of the confinement,
the chiral symmetry breaking, the $U_{\rm A}(1)$ anomaly and the strong
CP problems, both in terms of color-charged fields and colorless hadrons.
The central subject of the talk is an ensemble of almost everywhere
homogeneous, Abelian and (anti-)self-dual gluon field configurations.
These configurations are represented by a network of domain wall defects
in an initially homogeneous background. A single domain wall is given by
the sine-Gordon kink configuration for the angle between the chromomagnetic
and chromoelectric components of the gauge field. The kink arises as a
solution of the effective equations of motion within the Ginzburg-Landau
approach to the effective quantum action of QCD. The effective action takes
into account the existence of a non-vanishing gluon condensate
$\langle g^2F^2\rangle$ and the symmetries of QCD. The network of domain
walls is introduced by a combination of multiplicative and additive
superpositions of kinks. The spectrum and eigenmodes of color charged field
fluctuations are calculated for the case of an infinitely thin planar Bloch
domain wall. The character of the spectrum and eigenmodes of field fluctuations
in the presence of the network of domain walls characterizes the QCD vacuum
as the heterophase mixed state. The concept of the confinement-deconfinement
transition in terms of the ensemble of domain wall networks is outlined.
The role of a strong electromagnetic field as a trigger of deconfinement is
discussed.
This ensemble of gluon fields provides a setup for description of the main
nonperturbative features of QCD. The phenomenological results obtained
previously in the context of domain model are reviewed: confinement of
static and dynamical quarks, chiral symmetry realization, the $U_A(1)$
anomaly and the strong CP problem, as well as the mechanism of hadronization.
In particular, with a minimal set of parameters (characteristic for QCD)
the model describes the properties of mesons from qualitatively different
parts of the spectrum: light mesons (including the Regge spectrum), heavy
quarkonia, heavy-light mesons, electromagnetic form factors and decay
constants.

Abstract:
The roles of light $\omega$ and $\rho$ vector mesons in the Skyrmion are
investigated in a chiral Lagrangian derived from hidden local symmetry
(HLS) up to ${\cal O}(p^4)$ including the homogeneous Wess-Zumino terms.
We write a general master formula that allows us to determine the
parameters
of the HLS Lagrangian from a class of holographic QCD models valid at the
large-$N_c$ and large-$\lambda$ (`t Hooft constant) limit by integrating out
the infinite towers of vector and axial-vector mesons other than the lowest
$\rho$ and $\omega$ mesons. Within this approach we find that the physical
properties of the Skyrmion as the solitonic description of baryons are
independent of the HLS parameter $a$. Therefore the only parameters of
the model are the pion decay constant and the vector-meson mass.
Once determined in the meson sector, we have a totally parameter-free theory
that allows us to study unequivocally the role of light vector mesons in the
Skyrmion structure. We find that the inclusion of the $\rho$ meson reduces
the soliton mass, which makes the Skyrmion come closer to the
Bogomol`nyi-Prasad-Sommerfield soliton, but the role of the $\omega$ meson
is found to increase the soliton mass. This model is also applied to
investigate baryonic matter as Skyrmion crystals.
- 03.06.2013 Mridupawan Deka (BLTP JINR) "Meta-stable States in the Quark-Gluon Plasma" pdf
Abstract:
In pure $SU(3)$ gluodynamics, the deconfined phase exists in three degenerate
states which are related to each other via $Z(3)$ rotations.
For QCD with dynamical fermions, the $Z(3)$ symmetry is explicitly broken.
As a consequence, the degeneracy between the three states is lifted, and one
of these states becomes the lowest-lying phase. For asymptotically high
temperatures one expects that the effects of quarks can at most render
the other two phases meta-stable.
In this project (Phys.Rev. D85 (2012) 114505) we have studied the meta-stable
phases at high temperature by means of lattice QCD. We have considered $N_f=2$
and $3$ flavours of dynamical staggered quarks, and have carried out
simulations at various values of the inverse gauge coupling $\beta$ to observe
these states. We have estimated the temperature above which the expected
meta-stability appears.

The aim of the talk is to point out the connection between ordinary
S-matrix theory of the multiple production processes and the real
time finite temperature field theory in the sense of Schwinger-Keldysh.
It is shown that a one-to-one connection occurs if and only if the
event-by-event fluctuations of the mean energy of the produced particles
are Gaussian, i.e. the system is in "equilibrium".
The established connection
(i) defines the thermodynamical parameters of the Schwinger-Keldysh
theory through experimental input data and (ii) defines the range of
applicability of thermodynamical approaches to the description of
multiparticle production processes.

astrophysical observations" pdf
Abstract:
A systematic study of the role of the nuclear symmetry energy $E_s(n)$ for
the
description of neutron star (NS) matter is presented.
In a first part, the behavior of $E_s(n)$ at subsaturation densities is
discussed which is relevant for the location of the crust-core transition
inside the star and thus for the crust thickness.
We discuss how observations of glitches for the Vela pulsar constrain the
fraction of the crustal moment of inertia and thus $E_s(n)$ at low densities.
In a second part the conjecture of a
universal symmetry energy contribution
to the NS equation of state (EoS) at supersaturation densities is presented.
Ths result is derived from the finding that for NS matter the
asymmetry contribution to the energy per nucleon (in the parabolic
approximation) has a maximum bound as a function of baryon density which
corresponds to a proton fraction being almost constant and below the value
for the threshold of the Direct Urca (DU) cooling mechanism, i.e., around
$x_{\rm DU}\sim 1/8$.
As we have safe knowledge that the DU process cannot be operative in a large
class of NS, the EoS describing the matter their interior cannot allow proton
fractions exceeding $x_{\rm DU}$.
This implies the universal behaviour of the symmetry energy contribution
which can be exploited for linking the EoS determination by NS observations
with that by heavy-ion collision experiments.

Abstract:
We discuss several properties of the strongly coupled QCD in the presence of vacuum condensates and external fields in the framework of holographic AdS/QCD models. We investigate the compatibility of the dual AdS/QCD models with the axial low energy theorems of QCD, demonstrating a method of calculating the spectral density of the Dirac operator in dual models. We also discuss the implications of the holographic models for the QCD dynamics in strong external magnetic fields, such as the chiral magnetic effect, the behavior of the Debye screening mass in quark-gluon plasma in the magnetic field, and the dependence of the magnetic susceptibility and magnetization of the quark condensate on the external fields. The last part of the talk is dedicated to the examination of the Gross-Ooguri phase transition in the Wilson loop correlator in the presence of the gluon condensate.
- 03.04.2013 Irina Aref'eva (Steklov Mathematical Institute) "Quark-Gluon Plasma
Formation in Heavy Ion Collisions in Holographic Description" pdf
Abstract:
Starting from the discovery of QGP in heavy ions collisions at RICH,
a lot of theoretical efforts were applied to describe this phenomena within
QCD frameworks. The main problem is that this phenomena is dynamical and
in same time essentially nonperturbative. AdS/CFT correspondence,
which appeared as a
formal duality between the $N=4$ super Yang--Mills theory and
quantum gravity in the AdS background, has become a powerful tool
for studying various properties of real physical systems in the
strong-coupling limit.
The appearance of the quark-gluon plasma after the
heavy-ion collision in dual terms is described as formation of a
black hole. We discuss two holographic dual models of
thermalization.
In the first one colliding ions are described by gravitational shock
waves in AdS and the formation of the black hole is provided of
the formation of a trapped surface. In the dual language, the
multiplicity of the ion collision process is estimated as the area
of the trapped surface.
The second holographic model for quark-gluon plasma formed in the
heavy ion collisions is based on AdS-Vaidya model.
Within this model we estimate the thermalization time and its dependence on centricity
as well as
dethermalization time, related with the freeze-out time.

Mikhail Zubkov (ITEP) "Nambu sum rule in the NJL models: from superfluidity to top quark condensation" ppt
Abstract:
It may appear that the recently found resonance at 125 GeV is not the only
Higgs boson. We point out the possibility that the Higgs bosons appear in
models of top-quark condensation, where the masses of the bosonic
excitations are related to the top quark mass by the sum rule similar to the
Nambu sum rule of the NJL models. This rule was originally considered by
Nambu for superfluid $^3$He-B and for the BCS model of superconductivity. It
relates the two masses of bosonic excitations existing in each channel of
Cooper pairing to the fermion mass. An example of the Nambu partners is
provided by the amplitude and the phase modes in the BCS model describing
Cooper pairing in the s-wave channel. This sum rule suggests the existence
of the Nambu partners for the 125 GeV Higgs boson. Their masses can be
predicted by the Nambu sum rule under certain circumstances. For example, if
there are only two states in the given channel, the mass of the Nambu
partner is $\sim$ 325 GeV. They together satisfy the Nambu sum rule $M_1^2 +
M_2^2 = 4 M_t^2$, where $M_t \sim $174 GeV is the mass of the top quark. If
there are two doubly degenerated states, then the second mass is $\sim$ 210
GeV. In this case the Nambu sum rule is $2 M_1^2 + 2 M_2^2 = 4 M_t^2$. In
addition, the properties of the Higgs modes in superfluid $^3$He-A, where
the symmetry breaking is similar to that of the Standard Model of particle
physics, suggest the existence of two electrically charged Higgs particles
with masses around 245 GeV, which together also obey the Nambu sum rule
$M_+^2 + M_-^2 = 4 M_t^2$.

Yu. B. Ivanov (Kurchatov Institute, Moscow) "Heavy-Ion Collisions within Multi-Fluid Simulations: Scenarios with and without Deconfinement Transition" pdf
Abstract:
Simulations of relativistic heavy-ion collisions within the three-fluid
model, employing a purely hadronic EoS and two versions of EoS
involving the deconfinement transition, are presented. The latter are
an EoS with a first-order phase transition and another with a smooth
crossover transition.
The analysis is performed in a wide range of incident energies
2.7 GeV $\le \sqrt{s_{NN}}\le$ 39 GeV in terms of the center-of-mass
energy. First results of these different scenarios are compared with
available experimental data. Scenarios with a deconfinement transition
look preferable at high incident energies $\sqrt{s_{NN}}\ge$ 5 GeV.
It is found that the predictions within deconfinement-transition scenarios
exhibit a ``peak-dip-peak-dip'' irregularity (in the dependence on the
incident energy) of the form of the net-proton rapidity distributions
in central collisions. This irregularity signals the onset of deconfinement
occurring in the hot and dense stage of the nuclear collision.

Yuri Kalinovsky (LIT JINR) "Pion dissociation and Levinson's theorem in hot PNJL quark matter" pdf
Abstract:
Pion dissociation by the Mott effect in quark plasma is
described within the generalized Beth-Uhlenbeck approach
on the basis of the PNJL model which allows for a unified
description of bound, resonant and scattering states.
As a first approximation, we utilize the Breit-Wigner
ansatz for the spectral function and clarify its relation
to the complex mass pole solution of the pion
Bethe-Salpeter equation.
Application of the Levinson theorem proves that describing
the pion Mott dissociation solely by means of spectral
broadening of the pion bound state beyond $T_{\rm Mott}$
leaves out a significant aspect.
Thus we acknowledge the importance of the continuum of
scattering states and show its role for the thermodynamics
of pion dissociation.

Abstract:
An approach is assumed to be a first-principle if it doesn’t rely upon any empirical information except for fundamental physical constants. This definition covers a great number of physical models, however, not all of them gives reliable results in the case of strong interaction and degeneracy. In this presentation several methods of calculation of thermodynamic and transport properties of strongly coupled quantum plasma will be covered: path-integral Monte Carlo, Wigner dynamics, density functional theory and quantum molecular dynamics. The advantages and disadvantages of these approaches will be considered and practical examples of computations will be mentioned. In particular, the methods will be applied to electron-hole plasma of semiconductors, hydrogen and deuterium as well as to dense plasma of metals. Comparison with available experimental data will be analyzed and further perspectives of first-principle approaches for strongly-coupled plasma will be discussed.

M. Müller-Preussker (Humboldt University Berlin) "Confinement viewed with dimeron and dyon ensembles." pdf
Abstract:
We describe two recent attempts to simulate dimeron and dyon ensembles.
For zero temperature, following old confinement ideas put forward by Callan,
Dashen and Gross, (anti-) dimeron configurations are Monte-Carlo sampled
according to their classical action. We show that with an increasing bare
coupling the dimerons become more and more dissociating pointing to a meron
picture of the QCD vacuum state. Confinement is then viewed numerically in
terms of an area law of Wilson loops or an approximate linearly rising potential.
For non-zero temperature, guided by caloron solutions with non-trivial holonomy
as invented by Kraan and van Baal a couple of years ago, we discuss ensembles of
(anti-) dyon caloron constituents. Approximating them as Abelian monopoles one
analytically can compute the string tension as a function of the dyon gas density
and the temperature. On the other hand, simulating the monopole gas numerically
one easily sees that the long-range tails of their respective fields cannot be
simply treated within a finite volume. We describe that a solution of the severe
finite-size problem can be found with Ewald's summation technique well-known in
plasma physics. The numerical result obtained in the infinite volume limit nicely
agrees with the analytical result.

Tin Sulejmanpasic (University of Regensburg) "Dyons in QCD and Chiral Symmetry Breaking" pdf
Abstract:
SU(N) calorons with nontrivial holonomy are a natural generalization of
instantons at finite temperature, which split into N objects called dyons.
As still in their infancy, a proper model of the vacuum structure
in terms of dyons is important to
develop. I will discuss some of
the implications of dyons and the
effect on chiral symmetry breaking for fundamental, as well as adjoint
fermions. Crucial objects for chiral symmetry breaking are fermionic
zeromodes on top of the dyons. In particular, the analytic behavior of
these modes is different for fundamental and adjoint fermions
and will induce a different behavior for adjoint and fundamental chiral
condensation, which
can potentially explain the different behavior in fundamental and adjoint
chiral transition observed on the lattice.

Abstract:
New results of our ongoing lattice study aiming to support the magnetic
scenario of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) will be presented.
To be concise, the magnetic scenario provides arguments that magnetic
degrees of freedom are responsible for the QGP's liquid properties.
On a lattice, these degrees of freedom can be associated with magnetic
monopoles obtained in the Maximal Abelian Gauge.
I will present numerical results obtained in lattice SU(3) gluodynamics
on one hand and lattice QCD on the other.
I will cover such topics as:
monopole density; dependence of the magnetic coupling and the magnetic
mass on the temperature. I will also consider several characteristics of
the monopole clusters in the confinement phase aiming
at better understanding of the quantum fluctuations responsible for
confinement in SU(3) gluodynamics and QCD.

Abstract:
Most studies of the QCD phase diagram tacitly assume that the
different phases are homogeneous in space. However, there are good
arguments that inhomogeneous phases could also be present. In this talk we
focus on inhomogeneous chirally symmetry breaking phases,
where the quark condensate varies in space. Model calculations suggest
that the first-order chiral phase transition, including the critical
endpoint, could be removed from the phase diagram when inhomogeneous
phases are included. The mechanisms which lead to these solutions are
discussed and physical interpretations are given. Inhomogeneous color
superconducting phases are briefly discussed as well.

Abstract:
Recently, there were intense studies of hydrodynamics of chiral liquids.
A crucial novel point is existence of new transport coefficients,
overlooked in the text-book approaches. The coefficients are considered
to be completely fixed by the coefficient in front of the chiral anomaly.
This result could be obtained in a lot of approaches. Despite of variety
of the assumptions tried, all these approaches treat the liquid as a
single-component. We will consider here the system where the
single-component assumption is not valid and discuss which physical
picture is more justified.

Abstract:
This article discusses the dual geometries of confinement/deconfinement in
the hard wall model. Thermal charged AdS, which is the zero mass limit of
the Reissner-Nordstrom AdS black hole, is proposed as the dual geometry
corresponding to confining phase of QCD. We briefly review gauge/gravity
duality, hard wall model and Hawking-Page transition, and go through the

We identify the dual geometry of the hadron phase of dense nuclear matter
and investigate the confinement/deconfinement phase transition. We suggest
that the low temperature phase of the RN black hole with the full
backreaction of the bulk gauge field is described by the zero mass limit of
the RN black hole with hard wall. We calculated the density dependence of
critical temperature and found that the phase diagram closes. We also study
the density dependence of the $\rho$ meson mass.

The condensation of the charged $\rho$ mesons in strong magnetic field is a key feature of the magnetic-field-induced electromagnetic superconductivity of the vacuum.

Abstract:
The method of data analysis (z-scaling approach)
based on self-similarity and locality
of constituent interactions in hadron and nucleus collisions
at high energy is briefly described.
It is applied for the analysis of BES data in order to search
for signatures of a phase transition and a Critical Point.
Some results of the analysis of inclusive hadron spectra measured
in heavy ion collisions at RHIC over a wide range of the energies
√s_NN = 7.7-200 GeV are presented.
The microscopic scenario of constituent interactions in the framework
of this approach is discussed. The dependence of the energy loss on
the momentum of the produced hadron, the energy and centrality of the
collision is studied. The self-similarity of the constituent interactions
in terms of momentum fractions is used to characterize the nuclear medium
by a particular ``specific heat'' and the colliding nuclei by fractal
dimensions. Kinematical regions which are assumed to be the most preferable ones
to search for signatures of a phase transition of nuclear matter are discussed.
The discontinuity of the ``specific heat'' is assumed to be a signature
of crossing a phase transition or passing the Critical Point.

"Topological objects across the phase transition
as seen by the cooling method
in SU(3) gluodynamics and in QCD with two flavors"
Abstract:
Topological objects are studied using the cooling method
of lattice fields representing SU(3) gluodynamics on one hand
and Quantum Chromodynamics with N_f=2 quark flavors on the other.
We compare the probabilities to find topological non-trivial,
in particular selfdual and antiselfdual configurations in the
cooling histories of Monte Carlo lattice configurations, that
have been generated close to the transition region in the two
phases, confinement and deconfinement.
In SU(3) gluodynamics (N_f=0) this probability drops sharply at
the temperature of the first order phase transition, while the
analytic crossover of full QCD from confinement to deconfinement
is accompanied by a smooth decrease of this probability.
The topological susceptibilities obtained by this analysis behave
in a similar way. The temperature behaviour of the latter is compared
with and found to be close to the temperature behaviour of the
topological susceptibilities determined by other methods.

"Quantum Simulation
of Thermodynamic and Transport Properties
of the Quark-Gluon Plasma"
pdf
Abstract:
For quantum simulations of thermodynamic and transport properties
of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) within a unified approach we combine
Path Integral and Wigner (phase space) formulations of quantum mechanics.
Thermodynamic properties of a strongly coupled QGP of constituent
quasiparticles are studied by means of color path integral Monte-Carlo
simulations (CPIMC). For the purpose of simulations we have presented
the QGP partition function in the form of a color path integral with a
new relativistic measure instead of the usual Gaussian one used in
Feynman and Wiener path integrals. For the integration over the color
degree of freedom we have developed a sampling procedure according to
the SU(3) Haar measure. It is shown that this method is able to reproduce
the available Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics (LQCD) data describing the
deconfined phase.
Canonically averaged two-time quantum operator correlation functions and
related kinetic coefficients have been calculated according to Kubo formulae.
In our approach, CPIMC is used not only for the calculation of thermodynamic
functions, but also to provide equilibrium initial conditions (i.e. specific
coordinates, momenta, spin, flavor and color of multi-quasiparticle
configurations) in order to accomplish the generation of color-phase-space
trajectories as solutions of dynamic differential equations.
Correlation functions and kinetic coefficients are calculated as averages
of suitable Weyl's symbols of dynamic operators along these trajectories.
Using this approach we have calculated the diffusion coefficient and the
shear viscosity in good agreement with experimental data obtained at RHIC.
These results are obtained in collaboration with Yu. B. Ivanov (Kurchatov Institute Moscow and GSI Darmstadt, Germany), M. Bonitz (University Kiel, Germany), V. E. Fortov and
P. R. Levashov (both JIHT, RAS, Moscow).

Experimental data on particle (π,K,p,φ,Λ,Ξ,Ω,…) and antiparticle yields allow to study collective phenomena as a direct and elliptic flow, nuclear modification factors, transverse momentum spectra, fluctuations of transverse momentum, particle ratios, net-baryon number and correlations of different quantities (Δφ-Δη) and their dependence on energy and centrality collisions. Results (temperature, chemical potential,..) of data analysis in framework of some theoretical models are discussed.

"The Quark Anomalous Chromomagnetic Moment Induced by the QCD Vacuum,
a New Model for Pomeron and Odderon,
and the Nonperturbative Quark Energy Loss in Quark-Gluon Matter"
Abstract:
It is shown that the existence of strong vacuum gluon
fields called instantons in nonperturbative QCD vacuum leads to
appearance of a large anomalous quark chromomagnetic moment
(AQCM). We suggest a new model for Pomeron and Odderon exchanges based
on the AQCM and discuss the dynamics of exclusive high
energy hadron-hadron scattering at large momentum transfer. We
show that there is the nonfactorizable contribution to the
inclusive cross section for hadron production at high energy which gives
also the rise to single-spin asymmetries for meson
production observed in the many reactions. The possible important role of
AQCM contribution to the fast parton energy loss in cold
and hot quark-gluon matter is under discussion.

pdf
Abstract:
I review the progress made in recent years with functional continuum
methods in our understanding of the QCD phase diagram. Within this
approach QCD correlation functions of quarks, gluon and hadrons are
computed non-perturbatively from first principles. The approach has been
used complementary as well as in combination with lattice
computations, a particular strength being its applicability to the chiral
limit and at finite density. In the past decades this has led to a
plethora of quantitative as well as qualitative results for the hadronic
mass spectrum, the confinement-deconfinement and the chiral phase
transition, the role of fluctuations (non-Gaussianities) and the dynamics
of QCD far from equilibrium.
In the present talk I will mainly concentrate on the phase structure of
QCD at vanishing and finite temperature and density, including the effects
of strong (chromo-) magnetic and electric fields such as
present in heavy ion collisions. Specifically results are discussed for
the order parameters of confinement-deconfinement and chiral phase
transitions, the nature of these transitions and their interrelation, as
well as the thermodynamics of QCD. The talk concludes with a
discussion of the further prospects for our understanding of the phase
structure of QCD.

В экспериментах, проведенных в космических лучах при энергиях выше $ 10^{15}$ эВ ($>1$ ТэВ в системе центра масс), зарегистрированы необычные события разного типа, которые не находят своего объяснения в рамках существующих моделей адронного взаимодействия, основанных на экстраполяции ускорительных данных. Для их объяснения было предложено много различных идей и моделей, но ни одна из них не позволяет описать с единой точки зрения всю совокупность имеющихся экспериментальных данных. В докладе рассматривается модель образования кварк-глюонной материи в ядро-ядерных взаимодействиях, которая позволяет непротиворечивым образом описать имеющиеся экспериментальные результаты, полученные в космических лучах сверхвысоких энергий. Обсуждаются возможности проверки нового подхода в экспериментах на LHC.

"Эволюция электромагнитного поля в столкновении тяжелых ионов и киральный магнитный эффект"
Abstract:
Кинетическая модель динамики адронных струн обобщена на случай
формирования и эволюции электромагнитного поля с учетом влияния
этих электрических и магнитных полей на распространение квазичастиц
в ядерной среде. Для периферических Au+Au(200 ГэВ) столкновений
детально проанализирована пространственно-временная структура полей
и дана оценка достигаемых значений поля. Показано, что хотя значения
электрических и магнитных полей велики, они практически не влияют
на наблюдаемые величины (в том числе и на эффект разделения зарядов
относительно плоскости реакции) из-за взаимной компенсации действия
этих полей на транспорт квазичастц. Выполнен анализ недавних
экспериментов RHIC по поиску кирального магнитного эффекта при
умеренных энергиях. Результаты RHIC при энергиях столкновения 7.7 и
11.5 ГэВ могут быть разумно объяснены в рамках адронной модели.

"Two-colour lattice QCD at T>0 in the presence of a strong
magnetic field"
pdf
Abstract:
We present a lattice calculation for hadronic or quark-gluon
matter at non-zero temperature under the influence of a strong
magnetic field. We restrict ourselves to SU(2) gauge fields and
four degenerate dynamical quark flavours each having the same
electric charge.
We employ the staggered formulation for the fermionic lattice
fields and compute numerically the Polyakov loop and the chiral
condensate as well as their susceptibilities in order to establish the
dependence of the critical temperature on the external magnetic field. In
detail we discuss the enhancement of chiral symmetry
breaking in the chirally broken phase as well as its restoration
in the deconfined phase.

"Абелевые монополи и свойства кварк-глюонной плазмы"
Abstract:
Одной из моделей, которая предлагает
объяснение конфайнмента является модель
вакуума КХД как дуального сверхпроводника.
В этой моделе считается что в вакууме КХД в
конденсированном состоянии присутствуют
хромомагнитные монополи. При моделировании
вакуума КХД в вычислениях на решетке роль
хромомагнитных монополей играют монополи
в максимально абелевой калибровке. Так,
известно, что переход конфайнмент-деконфайнмент
однозначно связан с появлением-исчезновением
конденсата таких монополей.
Недавние теоретические исследования
кварк-глюонной плазмы показали, что монополи
могут играть важную роль в таких свойствах
плазмы как сверхтекучесть, которая была
обнаружена на эксперименте RHIC. Из этого
можно сделать вывод, что, изучая свойства
абелевых монополей, мы изучаем свойства
полевых конфигураций ответственных не только
за конфайнмент, но и за коллективные явления
в кварк-глюонной плазме.
В докладе будут представлены новые
результаты изучения абелевых монополей в
кварк-глюонной плазме в рамках решеточной
SU(2) КХД. В частности, в докладе планируется
обсудить взаимодействие монополей, плотность,
размер монополей, масса монополей, влияние
монополей на свойства кварк-глюонной плазмы
и т. д. Помимо этого, будут представлены
результаты доказывающие, что монополи являются
не только частицами, которые несут хромомагнитный
заряд, но и частицами несущими хромоэлектрический
заряд и в пределах ошибки вычислений эти заряды
равны между собой.

"Yang-Mills Theory at Non-Vanishing Temperature"
pdf
Abstract:
We study the temperature dependence of correlators in Yang-Mills
theory. For this purpose we utilise a purely thermal renormalisation
group flow equation, and obtain the full thermal propagators.
Interestingly, the electric screening mass is sensitive to the
confinement-deconfinement phase transition. We also compute
thermodynamic quantities such as the pressure.

"Рождение дилептонов в элементарных реакциях и столкновениях ионов при промежуточных энергиях"
Abstract:
Предлагается единое описание рождения векторных мезонов и дилептонов в
элементарных процессах и столкновениях тяжёлых ионов. Это означает, что
все дилептоны появляются через промежуточные векторные бозоны. Рождение
векторных мезонов предполагается результатом возбуждения нуклонных резонансов.
Соответствующая модель доминантности векторных мезонов расширяется с целью
описания переходных электромагнитных формфакторов резонансов.
В случае столкновения тяжёлых ионов обсуждаются эффекты ядерной среды.

"Nonrelativistic and Relativistic Hydrodynamics on the Lattice"
Abstract:
Lattice discretization of kinetic Boltzmann equation is one of
efficient ways for numerical simulations in viscous nonrelativistic
hydrodynamics,
which allows to consider turbulence, convection and other
non-equilibrium processes. We consider the derivation of macroscopic
hydrodynamical equations from continuum Boltzmann equation and from its
lattice discretization. It turns out that numerical solution of Boltzmann
equation on the lattice is simpler than the solution of the corresponding
Navier-Stokes equation. We also consider the
generalization of this approach to relativistic theory, in particular, to
the simulations of quark-gluon plasma.
