Item description for Chiral Nuclear Dynamics II: From Quarks to Nuclei to Compact Stars (Pt. 2) by Mannque Rho...
This book is the new edition of the first volume to treat in one effective field theory framework the physics of strongly interacting matter under extreme conditions. This is vital for understanding the high temperatures found in relativistic heavy ion collisions and in the early Universe, as well as the high density predicted to be relevant to compact stars. The underlying thesis is that what governs hadronic properties in a heat bath and a dense medium is hidden local symmetry which emerges from chiral dynamics of light quark systems and from the duality between QCD in 4D and bulk gravity in 5D as in AdS/QCD. Special attention is paid to relativistic heavy ion processes and compact stars that are either stable or on the verge of collapse into black holes.
