The critical behavior of hadronic matter: a comparison of lattice and bootstrap model calculations

Hagedorn statistical bootstrap model and the related concept of the limiting temperature begun the discussion about phase transitions in the hadronic matter. This was also the origin of the quark-gluon plasma concept. We discuss here to which extend lattice studies of QCD critical behavior at non-zero chemical potential are comparable with the statistical bootstrap model calculations.
