|EU IHP Network on Hadron Phenomenology from Lattice QCD|
Wednesday 23 to Saturday 26 January 2002
This is the first workshop in a series organised by the EU network on Hadron Phenomenology from Lattice QCD. It will address some issues concerned with getting physics out of lattice calculations. There will be pedagogical lecture series and one-off reviews suitable for graduate students and postdocs working in the lattice area. Provisional subjects include:
Space for posters will be available for the duration of the meeting and everyone is encouraged to bring posters for display.
The meeting was reported in the University of Southampton Dolphin magazine. (Click on the image for a larger version.)
Sixty physicists from Europe and the US visited the Avenue Campus for three days of discussions about the theoretical foundations of Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) in January.
The Southampton Lattice QCD group, led by Dr Jonathan Flynn and Professor Chris Sachrajda of the Physics Department, is a member of a European Union Framework 5 Network on Hadron Phenomenology from Lattice QCD, with physicists from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Rome, Zeuthen, Berlin, Wuppertal, Bern, and Orsay.
Lattice QCD allows physicists to study subtle features of the quantum field theory of the strong nuclear force and to quantify strong interaction effects in many fundamental processes. It will therefore be a key tool in attempts to answer the next set of problems in fundamental physics. In 2003, the Southampton group will obtain access to a 6 Tflops machine for lattice QCD computations. The machine is being constructed as part of the £6.6M JIF award to the UKQCD collaboration of which the Southampton group is a founder member.
