Physics Colloquium

"Nuclear lattice simulations"

Presented by Dean Lee, Michigan State University

Tuesday, March 20, 2018, 3:30 pm — Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

This is an introduction to how atomic nuclei and other quantum few- and many-body systems can be studied using lattice simulations.
The first part of the talk explains the basic formalism called lattice effective field theory. The rest of the talk is a discussion of novel methods and the new physics insights one gains with each.
The methods discussed are the adiabatic projection method for scattering and reaction calculations, pinhole algorithm for probing structure and thermodynamic properties, and eigenvector continuation for extending calculations to regions of parameter space where things otherwise break down.
