Phases of flavor broken QCD3
- 5 Downloads
We map out the phase diagram of QCD3 with a product flavor group of the form U(f ) × U(F ). We find interesting structures emerge when f + F > k depending on the relative sizes of f, F and k. In particular, there exists phase transitions in which a Grassmannian phase will disappear and reappear in a different part of the phase diagram.
