Abstract

ORSARIA, Milva; RODRIGUES, H.  and  DUARTE, S. B.. Color flavor locked phase transition in strange quark matter. Braz. J. Phys. [online]. 2007, vol.37, n.1a, pp. 20-22. ISSN 0103-9733.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-97332007000100008.

We discuss macroscopic aspects of quark matter phase transition in cold dense stellar matter, considering global charge neutrality and baryonic charge conservation. We determine the critical condition for the phase transition between the strange quark matter, SQM, and the color-flavor locked, CFL, superconducting phase. We also discuss the sensitivity of our results to variations in the gap energy, D, and in the current strange quark mass, ms0. The phase transition is calculated taking into account the baryonic density dependence of the quark masses in dense baryonic medium.

Keywords : Cold dense stellar matter; Phase transition; Color superconductivity.
