We have determined the relation between the in-medium $\omega $ meson mass and quark condensate in the framework of a Nambu Jona-Lasinio model constrained by some recent experimental data on the meson properties in nuclei. In addition to the usual four-quark interactions, we have included eight-quark terms in the Lagrangian. The parameters of this model have been determined using the meson properties in the vacuum as well as in the medium. More particularly, we have constrained both the in-medium pion decay constant to the value measured in experiments on deeply bound pionic atoms and the in-medium $\omega $ meson mass to the experimental value obtained either by the TAPS collaboration or by the E325 experiment at KEK. Our results are compared to several scaling laws and in particular to that of Brown and Rho.

    ABSTRACT: We study the interplay of the chiral and the color superconducting phase transition in an extended Nambu–Jona-Lasinio model with a multi-quark interaction that produces the nonlinear chiral–diquark coupling. We observe that this nonlinear coupling adds up coherently with the ω2 interaction to either produce the chiral–color superconductivity coexistence phase or cancel each other depending on its sign. We discuss that a large coexistence region in the phase diagram is consistent with the quark–diquark picture for the nucleon whereas its smallness is the prerequisite for the applicability of the Ginzburg–Landau approach.

    ABSTRACT: We investigate the three flavor Nambu-Jona Lasinio model of neutral quark matter at zero temperature and finite density, keeping into account the scalar, the pseudoscalar and the Kobayashi-Maskawa-'t Hooft interactions as well as the repulsive vector plus axial-vector interaction terms (vector extended NJL, VENJL in the following). We focus on the effect of the vector interaction on the chiral restoration at finite density in neutral matter. We also study the evolution of the charged pseudoscalar meson energies as a function of the quark chemical potential. Comment: 19 pages, Revtex4. Enlarged discussion of the new kaon excitation at large $mu$, revised Introduction, some reference added. Version to appear on Phys. Rev. D

    ABSTRACT: Using the Nambu and Jona-Lasinio model and a version of the model using a Polyakov loop, we expose the composite particles we managed to build with the u, d, s quarks. These are used for the first time to construct mesons. Next, we focus on diquarks. They are employed to model baryons as a bound state of a quark and a diquark, using a static approximation. For all these quoted particles, we stress the study of their masses according to two main parameters: the temperature and the baryonic density. In the framework of these studies, the isospin symmetry is applied, whereas an extra analysis at null temperature and density does not use this approximation. The work includes a comparison with experimental masses or results obtained with other approaches.
