• Inhomogeneous chiral condensate in the quark-meson model 

      Adhikari, Prabal; Andersen, Jens Oluf; Kneschke, Patrick (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The two-flavor quark-meson model is used as a low-energy effective model for QCD to study inhomogeneous chiral condensates at finite baryon chemical potential μB . The parameters of the model are determined by matching the ...
    • On-shell parameter fixing in the quark-meson model 

      Adhikari, Prabal; Andersen, Jens Oluf; Kneschke, Patrick (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The quark-meson model is often used as an effective low-energy model for QCD to study the chiral transition at finite temperature T and baryon chemical potential μB. The parameters in the quark-meson model can be found by ...
    • Pion condensation and phase diagram in the Polyakov-loop quark-meson model 

      Adhikari, Prabal; Andersen, Jens Oluf; Kneschke, Patrick (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      We use the Polyakov-loop extended two-flavor quark-meson model as a low-energy effective model for QCD to study the phase diagram in the μI–T plane where μI is the isospin chemical potential. In particular, we focus on the ...
    • Pion condensation and the QCD phase diagram at finite isospin density 

      Adhikari, Prabal; Andersen, Jens Oluf; Kneschke, Patrick (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      We use the Polyakov-loop extended two-flavor quark-meson model as a low-energy effective model for QCD to study 1) the possibility of inhomogeneous chiral condensates and its competition with a homogeneous pion condensate ...
    • Two-flavor chiral perturbation theory at nonzero isospin: Pion condensation at zero temperature 

      Adhikari, Prabal; Andersen, Jens Oluf; Kneschke, Patrick (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      In this paper, we calculate the equation of state of two-flavor finite isospin chiral perturbation theory at next-to-leading order in the pion-condensed phase at zero temperature. We show that the transition from the vacuum ...
