The QCD sign problem and the effective Polyakov line action

We suggest to solve the sign problem by mapping full QCD to an effective Polyakov line model. The method of relative weights, coupled with mean field theory, is applied to derive an effective action for an underlying SU(3) gauge theory with dynamical staggered fermions at finite densities. We present first results and discuss issues so far encountered.
