''Quark-Gluon Plasma: Theoretical Foundations''
Joseph Kapusta, Berndt Muller and Johann Rafeslki, Elsevier

Abstract

Who has not wondered what happens to ordinary matter when it is compressed or heated to such an extent that it melts into a plasma of quarks and gluons? Oftentimes the most insight comes from the original researchers who wrote the pioneering papers. This book is an annotated collection of papers selected by the authors as the most significant to the field of quark-gluon plasma. It provides an introduction to each of 13 general topics, and it guides the reader through the literature as well as introducing the reprinted papers.
