Description

nteractions in the hot and dense QCD medium give rise to extensive mixing between hadronic and gluonic degrees of freedom. The resulting mass matrix is non-Hermitian, which can lead to moat regimes with spatial modulations and instabilities towards inhomogeneous phases. I will discuss the underlying physics, implications for the QCD phase diagram and experimental opportunities.
