After
discussing the effective degrees of freedom in the deconfined phase, the
time evolution of cosmological parameters in early Universe is
studied, near and above the critical temperature, by an equation of
state (EoS) which takes into account the finite baryon density and the
background magnetic field.

The non-perturbative dynamics is described by the Field Correlator Method (FCM) which gives, with a small number of free parameters, a good fit of lattice data. The entire system has two components, i.e. the quark-gluon plasma and the electroweak sector, and the solutions of the Friedmann equation show that the scale factor, $a(t)$, and $H(t) = (1/a) \dd a/\dd t$ are weakly dependent on the EoS, but the deceleration parameter, $q(t)$, and the jerk, $j(t)$, are strongly modified above the critical temperature $T_c$, corresponding to a critical time $t_c \simeq 20$-$25 \; \mu \mathrm{s}$.

The time evolution of the cosmological parameters suggests that above and around $T_c$ there is a transient state of acceleration typical of a matter dominated Universe; this is entailed by the QCD strong interaction driven by the presence of massive colored objects.
