Talk QCD phase diagram

Imaginary chemical potentials represent a useful tool to explore QCD at small baryon densities via analytic continuation, and provide an extension of the QCD phase diagram which is interesting per se. I discuss recent results regarding the curvature of the pseudo-critical line and the location and nature of the Roberge-Weiss transition for N_f = 2+1 QCD with physical quark masses.
