Phase transition and critical end point driven by an external magnetic field in asymmetric quark matter

Abstract : The location of the critical end point (CEP) in the QCD phase diagram is determined under different scenarios. The effect of strangeness, isopsin/charge asymmetry and an external magnetic field is investigated. The discussion is performed within the 2+1 flavor Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model with Polyakov loop (PNJL). It is shown that isospin asymmetry shifts the CEP to larger baryonic chemical potentials and smaller temperatures. At large asymmetries the CEP disappears. However, a strong enough magnetic field will drive the system into a first order phase transition.
