The QCD transition

Lattice results

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The cosmological 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 four different lattice spacings (a ≈ 0.3, 0.2, 0.15 and 0.12 fm) and a continuum extrapolation.
