Abstract

In the last few years there has been remarkable progress in the comparison of experimental data on the shape of event-by-event distributions of conserved quantities and lattice thermodynamic predictions based on the grand canonical ensemble. In this talk we discuss how the QCD crossover temperature and the freezeout curve are extracted from the analysis of fluctuations. We report that one can also go further and locate the QCD critical point at µ }~ 2T c. We also list the systematics which must be brought under control in future.

Keywords: relativistic heavy-ion collisions; phase diagram of QCD; fluctuations and correlations
