  States of Matter -- Solid, Liquid, Gas, Plasma
In effect a plasma is a cloud of protons, neutrons and electrons where all the electrons have come loose from their respective molecules and atoms, giving the plasma the ability to act as a whole rather than as a bunch of atoms.
Plasmas are the most common state of matter in the universe comprising more than 99% of our visible universe and most of that not visible.
The collapse of the atoms into a single quantum state is known as Bose condensation or Bose-Einstein condensation is now considered a 5th state of matter.

  The Fourth State of Matter
There are three classic states of matter: solid, liquid, and gas; however, plasma is considered by some scientists to be the fourth state of matter.
The plasma state is not related to blood plasma, the most common usage of the word; rather, the term has been used in physics since the 1920s to represent an ionized gas.
Matter changes state as it is exposed to different physical conditions.

 Phase (matter) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The appearance of magnetic domains is a phase transition, and the new phase is known as a ferromagnet.
In general, we say that two different states of a system are in different phases if there is an abrupt change in their physical properties while transforming from one state to the other.
Such metastable states may sometimes be considered as phases, although strictly speaking they are not because they are unstable.

 STATE - Definition
State is a term nearly synonymous with ``mode,'' but of a meaning more extensive, and is not exclusively limited to the mutable and contingent.
In the United States, one of the commonwealth, or bodies politic, the people of which make up the body of the nation, and which, under the national constitution, stands in certain specified relations with the national government, and are invested, as commonwealth, with full power in their several spheres over all matters not expressly inhibited.
In computing and related fields, states, as in the light example, are often modelled as being discrete (rather than continuous) and the transition from one state to another is considered to be instantaneous.

 Article - Scientists create new state of matter
The scientists say they have produced compelling evidence for the new state of matter in which quarks, instead of being bound up by gluons into more complex particles such as protons and neutrons, are liberated to roam freely.
Theory predicts that the new state of matter that the scientists have created, in which quarks were single and free to move about, must have existed before the formation of matter as we see it now.
We now have evidence of a new state of matter where quarks and gluons are not confined.

 States of Matter - School for Champions: Succeed in Physical Science
The primary physical characteristics of the various states of matter are the volume and shape of the material.
The solid state of matter is when the material has a definite volume or size and distinct shape at a given temperature.
The reason the various states of matter have their particular physical characteristics and behave in the way they do is a result of the motion of the molecules and the attraction between them.

It usually includes the set of institutions that claim the authority to make the rules that govern the people of the society in that territory, though its status as a state often depends in part on being recognised by a number of other states as having internal and external sovereignty over it.
Although the term often includes broadly all institutions of government or rule—ancient and modern—the modern state system bears a number of characteristics that were first consolidated in western Europe, beginning in earnest in the 15th century, when the term "state" also acquired its current meaning.
For example, water in the liquid state is not the same as water in the frozen state.

 New State of Matter created at CERN
At a special seminar on 10 February, spokespersons from the experiments on CERN* 's Heavy Ion programme presented compelling evidence for the existence of a new state of matter in which quarks, instead of being bound up into more complex particles such as protons and neutrons, are liberated to roam freely.
This state of matter found in heavy ion collisions at the SPS features many of the characteristics of the theoretically predicted quark-gluon plasma, the primordial soup in which quarks and gluons existed before they clumped together as the universe cooled down.
While all of the pieces of the puzzle seem to fit with a quark-gluon plasma explanation, it is essential to study this newly produced matter at higher and lower temperature in order to fully characterize its properties and definitively confirm the quark gluon plasma interpretation.

Over the years, new states of matter have been proposed that had exotic magnetic or topological textures associated with the bosons.
A better explanation for the intervening metallic phase is that bosons are condensing into a glass-like state.
The researchers' findings are relevant to topological glasses in general, including the much-studied vortex glass state that has been argued to have zero resistance and to explain the ground state of high-temperature, copper-oxide superconductors in a perpendicular magnetic field.

The new matter form is called a fermionic condensate and it is the sixth known form of matter -- after gases, solids, liquids, plasma and a Bose-Einstein condensate, created only in 1995.
Her team's new form of matter uses fermions -- the everyday building blocks of matter that include protons, electrons and neutrons.

 RHIC Scientists Serve Up "Perfect" Liquid
"The truly stunning finding at RHIC that the new state of matter created in the collisions of gold ions is more like a liquid than a gas gives us a profound insight into the earliest moments of the universe," said Dr. Raymond L. Orbach, Director of the DOE Office of Science.
Also of great interest to many following progress at RHIC is the emerging connection between the collider's results and calculations using the methods of string theory, an approach that attempts to explain fundamental properties of the universe using 10 dimensions instead of the usual three spatial dimensions plus time.
However, unlike ordinary liquids, in which individual molecules move about randomly, the hot matter formed at RHIC seems to move in a pattern that exhibits a high degree of coordination among the particles -- somewhat like a school of fish that responds as one entity while moving through a changing environment.
