By Ed. by J.W. Negele and E. W. Vogt.

This year's 4 articles deal with issues starting from the character of the substructure of the nucleon and the deuteron to the final homes of the nucleus, together with its section transitions and its wealthy and unforeseen quantal homes. They evaluation the current experimental and theoretical knowing of the beginning of the spin of the nucleon, the liquid-gas section transition that happens at a lot reduce temperatures and densities than these of a quark-gluon plasma in relativistic heavy-ion collisions, the experimental information and theoretical types rising approximately very-high-spin states of nuclei, and the historical past of findings from the deuteron derived from contemporary electron-deuteron scattering experiments with saw polarizations and different experiments. The authors will not be pointed out.

Which exhibits the explicit mixing of left- and right-handed quarks in the QCD vacuum. The order parameters and are related. To see this one makes use of the operator identity Taking the vacuum matrix element and inserting a complete set of excited states one obtains the “energy-weighted sum rule” [60] where denotes the average of and and Upon saturation of by single-pion states the Gell-Mann-Oakes-Renner relation (GOR) [58] is obtained. Taking MeV yields a value for the quark condensate, Focusing on vector mesons a further order parameter can be specified as the difference between the vector and axialvector current correlators, It provides a direct link between chiral symmetry breaking and the spectral properties of vector and axialvector mesons and will be of most relevance in connection with dilepton production in heavy-ion experiments.

2. As a further consequence of chiral symmetry breaking the axialcurrent matrix element between the vacuum and a Goldstone boson is nonvanishing. For pions one has for instance: and the pion decay constant serves as an order parameter which measures the strength of the symmetry breaking. A second order parameter is the quark condensate Chiral Symmetry Restoration and Dileptons in RHIC 17 Fig. 2. Experimentally observed spectrum of low-mass mesons. which exhibits the explicit mixing of left- and right-handed quarks in the QCD vacuum.

Lattice Results Obviously the low-density expansion of discussed in the previous section is of limited validity and cannot address the nature of the QCD phase transition. The low-temperature expansion is restricted to below mostly because at this point heavier mesons start to enter [65]. 45) predicts a decrease of the chiral condensate ratio which is linear in the number density. At nuclear saturation density, this yields a drop and a naive extrapolation would indicate chiral restoration at This clearly cannot be trusted, since the EoS of nuclear matter greatly differs from that of a free Fermi gas at such high densities.
