Summary & Outlook
1. Interplay between and
in model

independent Ginzburg

Landau approach
2. We found a new critical point at low T
3. Hadron

quark continuity in the QCD ground state
4. QCD axial anomaly plays a key role
5. Exicitation spectra?
at low density and at high density
are continuously connected.
6. Future problems
•
Real location of the new critical point in T

μ
plane?
•
How to observe it in experiments?

•
