Inverse magnetic catalysis in holographic QCD

Abstract: Lattice simulations have shown recently that, contrary to expectations, the chiral condensate is suppressed with growing magnetic field near the chiral/deconfinement transition temperature of QCD. This phenomenon is known as “Inverse Magnetic Catalysis”. I will demonstrate that holographic V-QCD reproduces this effect, and provides a good qualitative match with lattice results for the condensate and related observables. In particular, the inverse catalysis is enhanced with increasing number of flavors, in agreement with lattice analysis.

Annual reporting on research
Remember to update your research activities on TUHAT database. Pay attention to information which is not centrally collected, especially international mobility and other publications than refereed journal articles. The library collects information on refereed journal articles and it will be checked in preparing the HIP Annual Report.

Reporting is requested by January 31, 2017.
