” Magnetized quarks
and gluons on the lattice”
In the extreme environment produced in heavy-ion collisions, strongly
interacting matter undergoes a transition, where protons and neutrons
melt and the so-called quark-gluon plasma phase is formed. Such collisions
also witness the strongest magnetic fields ever produced on the face of the
Earth. Besides heavy-ion experiments, strong magnetic fields also play a
relevant role in the evolution of the early universe and for a class of
neutron stars.
In this talk, I will introduce the basic concepts of lattice field theory and
explain how this approach can be used to determine the properties of
strongly interacting matter. In particular I will concentrate on how
background magneticfields affect the thermodynamics of quarks and
