The Condensed Matter Physics of QCD
by Krishna Rajagopal, Frank Wilczek
Publisher: arXiv 2000
Number of pages: 91
Important progress in understanding the behavior of hadronic matter at high density has been achieved recently, by adapting the techniques of condensed matter theory. We discuss the phase diagram of QCD as a function of temperature and density, and close with a look at possible astrophysical signatures.

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to a series of paradigmatic physical problems in condensed matter, using the computer to solve them. The course will feel like a natural extension of introductory condensed matter.

This book reviews static and dynamic interfacial effects in magnetism, focusing on interfacially-driven magnetic effects and phenomena associated with spin-orbit coupling and intrinsic symmetry breaking at interfaces. It focuses on recent progress...
