QCD at non-zero density and phenomenology

In the last few years, numerical simulations of QCD on the lattice have reached a new level of accuracy. A wide range of thermodynamic quantities is now available in the continuum limit and for physical quark masses. This allows a comparison with measurements from heavy ion collisions for the first time. I will review the state-of-the art results from lattice simulations of QCD thermodynamics and connect them to experimental measurements from RHIC and the LHC.
