The former contribution addresses certain (nonperturbative) radiative corrections to the pressure, arising from massive quasi-particle fluctuations.
E is the target quasi-particle (x) energy of the complex many-particle system driven off thermodynamic equilibrium by the external pump energy flux (Morowitz) whose physical dimensions are [P] = Energy/Area Time.
It is demonstrated that the Bogoliubov transformation avoids the problem of the thermodynamic consistency of the quasi-particle approach.
Let us to introduce a quasi-particle with a mass-energy [mu][c.sup.2] defined as
According to the soliton theory [29-30], the bell-type soliton in Equation (14) can move freely over macroscopic distances in a uniform velocity v in space-time retaining its form, energy, momentum and other quasi-particle properties.
In the present paper, we shall employ quasi-particle model for hot QCD equations of state [10, 11] to extract the Debye mass [12] which is obtained in terms of quasi-particle degrees of freedom.
where E is the scattered energy of quasi-particle Dirac fermions.
In addition, if color superconductivity effects are taken into account, the neutrino emissivity and specific heat are then suppressed exponentially by a factor exp(-[DELTA]/T), where [DELTA] is the quasi-particle gap in the color-flavor locked (CFL) phase.
Therefore, one coincides with energy of free light quasi-particle [h.sup.2][k.sup.2.sub.0] which is maximal too because k [less than or equal to] [k.sub.0].
