We discuss the possibility of a multidimensional structure of inhomogeneous chiral condensates, which might be realized in cold and dense quark matter or the core of compact stars. For one-dimensional structures, the system becomes unstable at finite temperature due to the Landau-Peierls instability attributed to the excitation of the Nambu-Goldstone modes, with the result that there is no long-range order, while quasi-long-range order is realized instead. On the other hand, chirally inhomogeneous phases with two- or three-dimensional modulations may be realized as a true long-range ordered phase at any temperature, as inferred from the Landau-Peierls theorem. We here consider possible strategies to explore a multidimensional structure of chiral crystals.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
