In this talk I will discuss various aspects of pion condensation at finite
temperature and density. At T=0, the phase diagram will be mapped
out in the mu_I-mu_B plane, and we
will discuss the competition between an inhomogeneous chiral condensate and
a pion condensate. At finite T, we map out the phase diagram in the
mu_I-T plane focusing on the deconfinement and chiral transitions as well
as the onset of pion condensation. Comparison with recent lattice data will
be made.
