**The Condensed Matter Physics of QCD**

by Krishna Rajagopal, Frank Wilczek

**Publisher**: arXiv 2000**Number of pages**: 91

**Description**:

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.
