Description

Functional continuum methods provide ab-initio access to the non-perturbative regime of quantum chromodynamics. In particular, they allow accessing non-zero temperatures and densities, making them an ideal tool to access QCD's phase diagram. The functional QCD collaboration [1] aims to map out the phase diagram in a systematic manner. Within the functional renomalization group (FRG) approach, remarkable progress has been achieved over the last few years.

In this talk I will briefly review results on chiral symmetry breaking and confinement at vanishing and finite temperature [2-5]. A particular challenge within the functional approaches is the extraction of the equation of state from correlation functions. I will report on recent progress and present first results on the trace anomaly as well as the pressure.
