Title of Talk: QCD equation of state via the complex Langevin method

Abstract: The equation of state of hadronic matter is of high importance for many fields, ranging from heavy-ion collisions to neutron stars. Non-perturbative methods to simulate QCD encounter difficulties at finite chemical potential 𝜇 due to the so-called sign problem. We employ the complex Langevin method to circumvent this problem and carry out simulations at a variety of values for temperature and 𝜇. We present results on the pressure, energy and entropy equations of state, as well as a numerical observation of the Silver Blaze phenomenon.


The aim of the YRC Lunch Seminar is to promote individual research done by young researchers within Isoquant and create a regular platform to socialize and share ideas.

The seminar will take place in presence in accordance with the current COVID-19 regulations for on-site events (Please wear a FFP2 mask or surgical mask if the minimum distance of 1.5m can not be guaranteed).
