Numerical Simulations of QCD at finite Baryon Density Boltzmann weight is complex for non-zero . –Monte-Carlo simulations: Configurations are generated with the probability of the Boltzmann weight. –Monte-Carlo method is not applicable directly.

Summary Derivatives of pressure with respect to q up to 6 th order are computed. The hadron resonance gas model explains the behavior of pressure and susceptibilities very well at. –Approximation of free hadron gas is good in the wide range. Quark number density fluctuations: A pronounced peak appears for. Iso-spin fluctuations: No peak for. Chiral susceptibility: peak height becomes larger as q increases. This suggests the critical endpoint in plane? Debye screening mass at non-zero q is consistent with the perturbative result for. To find the critical endpoint, further studies for higher order terms and small quark mass are required.
