Two lectures on color superconductivity1

Igor A. Shovkovy2

Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies
Institut für Theoretische Physik,
Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität,
D-60054 Frankurt am Main, Germany


The first lecture provides an introduction to the physics of color superconductivity in cold dense quark matter. The main color superconducting phases are briefly described and their properties are listed. The second lecture covers recent developments in studies of color superconducting phases in neutral and $\beta$-equilibrated matter. The properties of gapless color superconducting phases are discussed.


1 Lectures delivered at the IARD 2004 conference, Saas Fee, Switzerland, June 12 - 19, 2004, and at the Helmholtz International Summer School and Workshop on Hot points in Astrophysics and Cosmology, JINR, Dubna, Russia, August 2 - 13, 2004.
2 On leave from Bogolyubov Institute for Theoretical Physics, 03143, Kiev, Ukraine.
