Determining the phase diagram of QCD, as a function of the density of matter and the temperature, could be accomplished by lattice Monte Carlo simulations, if it were not for a severe "sign problem". I present one promising approach to circumvent this obstacle, based on reversing the usual order of integration and integrating the gauge fields first.
