Abstract

A review is made of the relation of the quark-hadron and chiral symmetry transitions and the big bang universe. Possible signatures at de-confinement are mentioned and related to cosmology. It is noted that to produce surviving perturbations at this epoch requires black hole production which in turn would require a first-order phase transition. The effect of a quark matter phase in neutron stars is also discussed and related to monopole flux limits through its role in cooling.
