N2 - Use of lattice gauge theory in particle physics at extreme conditions was discussed. The finite temperature/density phase transition of the strong intercation was also studied. Metropolis algorithm as an illustration was used to calculate the weights in averages. Analytic continuation of the Taylor series reduced to simply flipping the sign of the appropriate terms. The Taylor series also allowed determination of the phase line separating the hadronic and quark-gluon plasma phases. Various results indicated that lattice QCD could be a major contributor to the field of thermodynamics.
