On quark matter in a strong magnetic field

  • J D Anand
  • S. Singh


The effect of strong magnetic field on the bulk properties of quark matter is reinvestigated takingu, d ands-quarks as well as electrons in the presence of magnetic field. Here the bag pressure is chosen such that in the absence of magnetic field and at zero temperature the binding energy of theuds-system is <930 MeV while that ofud-system is greater than 940 MeV. It is observed that the equation of state changes significantly in a strong magnetic field. At finite temperature the electron chemical potential varies between 6 and 50 MeV. Thus the expansion of thermodynamical quantities in powers ofT/(Μ i 2 -M v (i)2 )1/2 is valid only up to few MeV. For high temperatures ∼40 MeV the exact integral expressions are to be taken.
