Lifshitz regime in the phase diagram of QCD

01/11/2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
BL 339
Speaker(s) / Presenter(s): 
Dr. Rob Pisarski

I will review the concept of a Lifshitz point, and its possible relevance to the phase diagram of QCD, especially in contrast to the standard paradigm of a critical endpoint. I will stress on how fluctuations dramatically alter the phase diagram, yielding a Lifshitz regime. Possible signatures in heavy ion collisions are discussed.
