Bag model revisited

The bag model is probably the most simple model to describe the equation of state of dense quark matter one can think of. A significantly more sophisticated approach to dense quark matter is provided by the Dyson-Schwinger formalism. I will explain briefly, how the bag model can be understood within this framework, what it misses and how it can be extended without loosing simplicity. I will make a few additional remarks regarding the 'standard' Maxwell phase transition construction and it's applicability.
