We study the large Nc behavior of couplings among light meson states with different compositions in terms of quarks and gluons. We shortly review the most common compositions of mesons, which are of interest for the understanding of low-lying meson resonances, namely, the ordinary quark-antiquark states as well as the non-ordinary, glueball, tetraquark, etc. We dedicate special attention to...

I will review our current understanding of the phase diagram of two-color quark matter with emphasis on the comparison of model and lattice results. Reproducing even *qualitatively* the thermodynamic observables measured on the lattice requires augmenting the standard Polyakov loop Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model with two new elements: renormalization of the Polyakov loop, and explicit chiral...

In ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions nuclear matter is heated to a temperature exceeding that necessary to create a quark-gluon plasma (QGP). Traditionally, second order viscous hydrodynamics has been used to reproduce the soft collective flow of the QGP and hadronic spectra; however, due to rapid longitudinal expansion in the early stages of evolution, the system may possess substantial...
