Theoretical High Energy Seminar


I will review the basic properties of the relativistic BCS-BEC crossover and its possible relevance for the phase diagram of dense quark matter. Using a simple model I will discuss the evolution of collective excitations along the crossover to some detail. I will then report on an attempt to include the effect of such fluctuations on the thermodynamics within the 1/N expansion, and suggest the corresponding modification of the QCD phase diagram.
