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.

This book introduces the theoretical description of quantum fluids. The focus is on gaseous atomic Bose-Einstein condensates and, to a minor extent, superfluid helium, but the underlying concepts are relevant to other forms of quantum fluids.

This paper reviews recent experimental and theoretical progress concerning many-body phenomena in dilute, ultracold gases. It focuses on effects beyond standard weak-coupling descriptions, such as the Mott-Hubbard transition in optical lattices, etc.
