QCD Phase Transitions
November 4-7, 1998.
A RIKEN BNL Research Center Workshop
Brookhaven National Laboratory
Upton, NY, USA
The Workshop `QCD Phase Transitions' will be held at the RIKEN BNL Research Center, located at Brookhaven National Lab, from November 4 to 7, 1998.
The purpose of the workshop is to discuss the phase structure of QCD and related theories. We will focus on the phase transitions that are expected to occur as a function of temperature, chemical potential, the number (and masses) of flavors, and other parameters. We would like to review what is known from general arguments, analytical approaches, and the lattice, and discuss possible avenues for future research. Recent advances in unravelling the phase structure of supersymmetric gauge theories and the possible impliactions of these results for QCD will also be discussed. Finally, we would like to discuss the possible dynamical mechanisms common to some (or all) of these transitions.
The Workshop will consist of invited plenary talks, shorter talks by
participants, and discussion sessions on key topics.
