Strong coupled quark matter and drawbacks of its BCS-BEC crossover

Israel Portillo Vazquez, University of Texas at El Paso


It was found many years ago, that the ground state wave functions of the Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieer (BCS) superconductivity in a degenerate Fermi gas and the Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) of composite molecules are essentially the same, and those two states can be smoothly connected through a crossover. This BCS-BEC crossover has being recently extended to relativistic Fermi System. This thesis is dedicated to exploring the possible crossover from BEC to BCS phase on strong-interacting matter and its implications for the system Equation of State. The study will be concentrated on different phases of dense quark-matter for vanishing temperatures and densities beyond hadronic matter. Under dense conditions a deconned quark phase is expected as the hadrons are dissociated.
