Nuclear Physics & RIKEN Theory Seminar

"QCD and Beyond on the Lattice"

Presented by Meifeng Lin, Yale University

Friday, March 11, 2011, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

The theory that describes strong interactions between quarks and gluons, quantum chromodynamics (QCD), has a coupling strength that is stronger at low energies, making it implausible to study low-energy physics using perturbation theory. Discretizing it on a space-time lattice is the only known way to study strong interactions from first principles. I will give an overview of lattice QCD and focus on its applications in nucleon structure calculations. Using the lattice approach to study other QCD-like theories will also be briefly discussed.
