Thermodynamics with \(2 + 1 + 1\) Dynamical Quark Flavors

  • Stefan Krieg
Conference paper

Abstract

We report on our calculation of the equation of state of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) from first principles, through simulations of Lattice QCD. We use an improved lattice action and \(N_{f} = 2 + 1 + 1\) dynamical quark flavors and physical quark mass parameters.
