Abstract

The QCD transition is studied using lattice simulations. The order of the transition is determined via a finite volume analysis. It is found to be an analytic crossover. The transition temperature is determined in physical units using three different definitions. All results are obtained using five different lattice spacings(a œ 0.3,0.2,0.15, 0.12 and 0.1 fm) and a continuum extrapolation.
