Confinement Models at Finite Temperature and Density


Schwinger-Dyson equations are used to study various confining systems at zero and finite temperature and density. We shall discuss (i) the inadequacy of static confinement models to explain thermal properties of QCD (ii) the spontaneous chiral and parity symmetry breaking of three dimensional QED with two-component fermions (iii) the endemic infrared divergences in QED3 at finite temperature.
