Monte Carlo studies of finite density QCD is difficult due to the notorious sign problem. As a promising approach that can avoid this problem, the complex Langevin method has been attracting attention. In particular, a practical criterion for correct convergence has been proposed, and it is found to be satisfied in certain parameter regions of finite density QCD. In this talk I will summarize...

Neutron stars (NSs) contain the densest observable matter in the universe. Within their cores lies QCD matter compressed to multiple times the density of common nuclei. Unfortunately, this matter is too dense to be studied from first-principles nuclear-physics calculations, and not dense enough to be studied using first-principles perturbative-QCD calculations.

Quark-hadron continuity was proposed as crossover between hadronic matter and quark matter without a phase transition, based on the matching of the symmetry and excitations in both phases.

The sign problem, is a serious obstacle to perform the Monte Carlo simulations of QCD with finite chemical potential, is caused by the oscillation of the Boltzmann factor. To avoid this problem, we have proposed the path optimization method. In this method, we optimize the integral path in complex plain to decrease the cancellation in integral. In this talk, we explain the application of this...

We consider the massive Schwinger model in the canonical formulation using transfer matrices in fixed fermion number sectors. The fermion contributions can be classified according to the discrete, local fermion occupation numbers which define specific fermion states. They can be used to expose the vacuum structure of the theory and the origin of the sign problem at finite fermion number...

We study the complex $\phi^{4}$ theory with finite chemical potential. To closely understand nontrivial effects such as the Silver Blaze phenomenon, experimental studies on the lattice will give some knowledge; however, on account of the finite chemical potential, there is a sign problem in Monte Carlo simulations. In this study, to overcome the problem, the tensor renormalization group...

It is important to compute transport coefficients in QCD at finite temperature and density. When the imaginary-time formalism of Lattice QCD is used, the spectral functions have to be reconstructed by supplementing certain Ansatze for correlation functions on the lattice. On the other hand, real-time Green's functions can be obtained directly in the Schwinger-Keldysh (SK) formalism. But the SK...
