QCD Matter Description within a Quasiparticle Model Combined with Critical End Point Effects

Presenting Author: Prof. Burkhard Kampfer

Author(s): M. Bluhm, R. Schulze, B. Kampfer


We adjust our quasiparticle model to recent lattice QCD data to cover appropriately the finite chemical potential region. This delivers the regular part of the equation of state. A singular part is included to accommodate the Critical End Point belonging to the universality class of the 3D Ising model. Isentropic flow of matter through the phase diagram is studied, and the impact of the equation of state on v2(pT) is discussed.
