报告内容:

The QCD baryon number density can formally be expanded into a Laurent series in fugacity, which is a relativistic generalization of Mayer's cluster expansion. We determine properties of the cluster expansion in a model with a phase transition and a critical point at finite baryon density, in which the Fourier coefficients of the expansion can be determined explicitly and to arbitrary order. The asymptotic behavior of Fourier coefficients changes qualitatively as one traverses the critical temperature and it is connected to the branching points of a thermodynamic potential associated with the phase transition. The results are discussed in the context of lattice QCD simulations at imaginary chemical potential. We argue that the location of a branching point closest to the imaginary chemical potential axis can be extracted through an analysis of an exponential suppression of Fourier coefficients. This is illustrated using the four leading coefficients both in a toy model as well as by using recent lattice QCD data.
