Critical Exponents of Quark Matter


I investigate the ferromagnetic phase transition inside strong quark matter (SQM) with one gluon exchange interaction between strong quarks. I use a variational method and the Landau-Fermi liquid theory and obtain the thermodynamics quantities of SQM. In the low temperature limit, the equation of state (EOS) and critical exponents for the second-order phase transition (ferromagnetic phase transition) in SQM are analytically calculated. The results are in agreement with the Ginzberg-Landau theory.
