Towards a unified EoS for quark-hadron matter

A main problem to arrive at a unified EoS for quark-hadron matter is the description of the mass spectrum of hadrons as being strongly corrrelated multiquark states (cluster decomposition) and their in-medium modification including their dissociation due to the Mott effect. The formulation can be achieved in the form of a generalized Beth-Uhlenbeck EoS with medium dependent phase shifts describing the multiquark correlations. A generic ansatz, motivated by calculations within the PNJL model is introduced and first results are presented.
