Colour superconductivity in finite systems

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    We have studied the effects of finite size on the two flavor colour superconducting state. Since the baryon number in the BCS state is only fixed on average, we have projected the state onto a fixed baryon number. The resulting state has been then projected onto a colour-singlet state, by integrating onto the colour group manifold. The effects of both projections have been evaluated numerically.
