Working group 1 - Phases of strongly interacting matter

WG1 is oriented onto physics questions dealing with strongly interacting matter in equilibrium. It includes ab initio lattice QCD calculations and their applications, effective modes, hadron properties in medium and vacuum. The important object of the studies are the Equation of State and transport coefficients (as long as they are not used in dynamical simulation). Also, statistical models for hadron production and the chemical composition of matter in equilibrium fall into the scope of this WG.

Working group 1 is coordinated by Prof. Gert Aarts.
