Phases of flavor broken QCD_{3}
Abstract
We map out the phase diagram of QCD_{3} with a product flavor group of the form U( f ) × U( F ). We find interesting structures emerge when f + F > k depending on the relative sizes of f, F and k. In particular, there exists phase transitions in which a Grassmannian phase will disappear and reappear in a different part of the phase diagram.
