AGUIAR, C. E.; FRAGA, E. S.  and  KODAMA, T.. Spinodal instability in the quark-gluon plasma. Braz. J. Phys. [online]. 2004, vol.34, n.1a, pp.307-309. ISSN 1678-4448.

We investigate the onset of spinodal decomposition in a relativistic fluid of quarks coupled to a nonequilibrium chiral condensate. Studying small fluctuations around equilibrium, we identify the role played by sound and chiral waves in the generation of unstable modes.
